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

Am I the only one who is a little disgusted that Taylor is now selling money clips? I mean, is it about the music or not, or is owning a Taylor now more of a status symbol as Taylor moves forward and change their value quotient?

I just recently picked up a T5S in mint condition.  I notice one interesting thing about the pickup, it can use balanced TRS or unbalanced plugs.  When using the unbalanced, the guitar seems prone to picking up some static electricity after some playing like my Fender Thinline does but only with an unbalanced cable and not with the balanced.  Anyone else notice that?

Also any tips, tricks, preferred strings (it has the recommended Elixirs on it) amps, etc.

So far I am very impressed by this axe--such a range of sounds from sweet rich fingerstyles to cranking electric power styles.

I am using it with my Crate CA60 acoustic amp with only the effects in my Digitech Vocal Live 4 and into my studio mixer.

Very comfortable to play.  Any tips, tricks, recommendations  would be appreciated from experienced users.

Keep picking.

Hi. I own a 614CE. Best guitar ever for playing out with a band. Own a couple other Taylors as well, plaus some from other companies.

Hello, haven't been here for quite awhile. As a retired PatternMaker, ( precision machining ), I'm sure touring the Taylor factory would be facinating and educational since some of the technology was developed on site and represents cutting edge process. I'll make it to the Martin factory long before the Taylor factory, but both experiences are ones that I would love to have. I have several brands and models of guitars but my 814ce Fall 2006 Limited rings like a crystal bell and it would be great to see how and why in person, always a different experience than researching something.

Thanks for serving, Ed.  And thanks to Jim for starting the group and serving as well. 

I've wanted to tour the Taylor factory, and one of my daughters lives nearby it in Carlsbad, CA.  However, seems like we only visit her around Christmas and that's the only time the tour is not available!  We'll have to change our schedule in 2011.

Well, hello to everyone.  I have been handed the reins, administratively, to the Taylor Owners Group and I look forward to my continued participation with my fellow devoted Taylor owners.

 

I toured the Taylor factory a few months ago and am still buzzed by the experience.

Comment by Walt Pilcher on December 30, 2010 at 8:18pm
I certainly agree with that.
Comment by Jim Handsfield on December 30, 2010 at 8:14pm
Walt, that's good to know.  It's also a good idea to have more than one who can administer a group.
