Hi Mark.Baker or anyone else able to help me out
I have a problem, The switch you wrote abeut,- well I can`t find it.
As I understood your post, it was to be found on the pre-amp.
Here is a link to the fotos I took inside today (I guess I´m 6 hours ahead of you, living in Europe)

It's a beautiful thing isn't it?  And I really like the sound of the bass notes on the Ditson (among other things) it's just an all around beauty as long as you don't have to go past the 12th fret too often.  Strumming, fingerpicking, flatpicking - it's my favorite.  I notice you have quiet a stash of guitars - is there one you like best as an all around favorite?

I also own a Martin Ditson and love the  1 7/8 neck.

Hi Mark, thank you. I will have a look with a mirror, I did´nt know there could be a switch

Hi, Jan, and congratulations on your first Taylor. The 110 comes with a simplified version of the Expression System (ES) pickup/preamp, called ES-T. The full ES uses several body sensors, whereas the ES-T uses a simple under-saddle piezo pickup. One thing you might try is changing the position of the 2-position phase switch on the preamp, which you can reach through the sound hole.

Thanks for the report, Ed. My daughter lives in Carlsbad, not far from El Cajon, and I've been wanting to take the tour. Unfortunately, we see her during Christmas week and that's the only time there's no tour. Need to get my calendar recalibrated!

My wife and I spent a few days in San Diego recently and while she shopped, I took the Taylor Guitar factory tour. What an amazing experience! Terry (maybe it was Gerry), our tour guide, was great. They issue you little Walkman style headphone gadgets at the start and the guide is miked so you could hear him perfectly despite shop noise. They start with the wood storage (outdoors due to the ideal San Diego weather) and progress through the entire process. I highly recommend traveling to "Mecca" once in your life. They have a lot of guitars available to play in the gift shop. I got to play a GS Mini (not actually out yet) and both baritone models, neither of which my local Taylor dealers carry. And, in the interests of staying married to my wife of 37 years, I only bought a shirt in the gift shop and it was on sale. I want a GS Mini and a baritone 6-string though. Maybe the Texas Lottery will come through!

Or you could order it from the Turtle Wax online store...

Visit http://hosted.where2getit.com/turtlewax/, put in your zip code, and you should be able to find a store that carries it.

Hey Mark

I went to three different automotive stores and got the same response from all three. This is a discontinued product. I can't find it anywhere locally.
