Taylor expression vs older fishman prefix pickup... 3 Replies

So...   I'm looking at a few different used Taylors right now.   I've heard people argue both sides of this topic.  Some swearing by the old fishman preamp/pickup system, while others claim the new…Continue

Taylor 12 fret guitars. Which model do you have or recommend and what do you like about them? 3 Replies

I am in the market for a Taylor 12 fret guitar and was wondering what experiences others have had with these.  I am leaning towards the 522e with a Western red cedar top, which would be the same as…Continue

Thanks for the nice comments guys.  Mark, you mentioned 'drooling', I have been lusting after this guitar for 3 years, but I wasted my money on foolish things like foundation repairs on our house, water-proofing our basement, and silly things like that.  But now I have my priorities in order again.

Paul,I was drooling over one of those in a store a while back.  Gorgeous guitar!!

Congratulations Paul! That's a beautiful guitar!

That's gorgeous, Paul!  Personally, I've never seen an 800 series in sunburst, but it looks amazing.

Congratulations Paul, that's a beauty.  Use it in good health!

Hey Guys

I got a call from Long&Mcquade last night to tell me that my 814ce I had ordered had arrived.  Originaly they said it was delayed until the middle of January.  This is the first time I've put it down since I picked it up this afternoon.  This is the finest guitar I have ever owned.

Hey Paul, You wouldn't play the 410 once you got the 814 is an understatement! I have a 814ce Fall 2006 LTD and it is pretty amazing!

Mark ... I haven't played either one of them, but just looking at the specs in the review, they appear to be completely different guitars to me.  The DDX has a longer scale, deeper body, and narrower nut, on top of laminate construction.  Not that any of this should be considered inferior ... it just seems that it would  make the DDX play, and perhaps even sound completely different from the Doyle Signature. 
Sort of like apples and oranges other than the Taylor name on the headstock.

Thanks for the link, Jud - an interesting article that does a good job of outlining the differences.  Have you (or has anyone) had an opportunity to play them head-to-head and compare their sound?

Mark ... The July issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine has a nice review of the Doyle Deluxe and give several of the differences between that model and the Doyle Signature:  Here's the link:
