Congratulations, Michael! I've had my 210e for about two years and love it. I wish they'd had the gloss finish available when I got mine, but either way it's a beautiful looking and sounding instrument. I've only been playing guitar for about four years and am strictly an amateur, but as far as I can tell the 210e holds its own against the higher end Taylors, although some of my friends with the more expensive ones might not agree!
Thanx for the input. It's nice to hear so many of you are happy with this one. I'll let you know how it ages!
