Iv3 been a high end Taylor player for a long time. I had come to the store looking for a better nylon guitar when the sales person brought in a cold off the truck prs acoustic. It had never been played. He said try it and so I did. I tried not to look too over joyed while asking the price. I just looked at him and said sold! It's lighter with a bigger bottom but....it's nearly perfect in balance and intonation. After coming from the new Taylor braving intonation I'm really picky. This made the cut. I just need to find out what strings came with it. It's about as close to perfect as it gets. It is a complement not replacement guitar. It has its own sound and place. I still love my Taylor's and now I love this guitar too. Separate distinct and equal at a much lower price. If I could only have one I'd still stay with my 914ce but this is a very honorable purchase.
