Sounds better than everything I've played when it comes to finger picking :)

Comment by Jud Hair on August 18, 2014 at 8:17am

Elton ... One of the disadvantages for me re the 100-200 level Taylor's is the narrow (1 11/16) nut width.  It's a deal breaker for me.  This was and continues to be probably the thing I like most about Seagull's ... the 1.8 inch nut is pretty unique in the acoustic world and in dreadnought's particularly.  I've passed over a great many really nice guitars because they didn't feature at least a 1 3/4 inch nut.  This is just my personal bias ... I know many people who are adamant that it's not a big deal to them.

Thank you very much Florida!  Now I can live again  (I'm pretty sure I have some cat dna in me, so I was gettin' REALLY worried there for a bit,  ;-P  ).

I have gone through just under a dozen guitars in the last 5 years to find that perfect trinity of guitars that are perfect "for me."  I don't know if that constitutes a greater or lesser degree of GAS, but it has been a fun (and sometimes frustrating) ride. 

Now let's see how my old model-T brain handles actually remembering those acronyms.  8-D

Speaking of Taylor's, I had some extended time on the 214ce this weekend. I was very very impressed with the tone of this Mexican machine, and far preferred it to the solid wood 314ce (Sorry Jud!). In the upper register, it sounded very nice.

GAS is Guitar Acquisition Syndrome - from which we all suffer, to a greater or lesser extent...
YMMV is your mileage may vary...
Comment by Tony K. on August 17, 2014 at 9:23am

Ok, I gotta ask, the curiosity is killing me:  What does "GAS" and "YMMV" stand for?  lol.  8-0.

The only modern one I know is YOLO.  LOL.

Comment by Chuck Hydrick on August 16, 2014 at 8:03pm

Played a Taylor 812ce today (among various others). In retrospect, I shouldn't have even picked it up. Really, really liked that guitar. Sounded and played wonderfully. Very comfortable and inspiring. I could do without all the "800-series bling", but I think that rosewood body has a lot to do with the great tone I was hearing. Kinda doubt I'll ever lay out that much moola on a geetar. Briefly picked up a T5z. Didn't plug in, but definitely a great feeling and smooth playing instrument.

Fun to spend time perusing the merchandise. But then the GAS pangs hit. Ouch.

Comment by Tony K. on August 16, 2014 at 8:43am

I think if I wanted a guitar with these capabilities, I'd save some money and go with the Godin A6 Ultra.  To me, is sounds better, especially on the acoustic side of things.  And, the guitar has 2 outputs to boot, so no need for an ABY box which really rocks.  It may not have that second electric pickup, but if I want all those electric capabilities, then I'd grab an electric. The preamp on the A6 gives you much more flexibility to make up for the lack of that 2nd pickup anyways. 

So, Go Go Godin I say!  : P

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on August 15, 2014 at 8:50pm
Acoustically the T5 sounds rather anemic and dismal, but the tones you could achieve with the various pick-up configurations provided a lot of options from straight electric sound to a pretty fair acoustic tone IMHO. I think it would be a great gigging instrument but for an at home or small group acoustic jammer you're better off with a full acoustic. As they say, YMMV.
Comment by Jud Hair on August 15, 2014 at 7:18pm

Phil ... I'm sure you're right. To me, the T-5 is an interesting instrument, sort of like the Godin Multiac.  But, just not my cup of tea.  Honestly, I wasn't paying a lot of attention to the explanation during the demo because I was there mainly to get my hands on all the super nice acoustics they put at your disposal during what they call "The Petting Zoo" ... The T-5 was what they were pushing last year, but this year it was the new 800 series acoustics :-)
