I had a Taylor T5 a Crafter SA and a new Epiphone SS Coupe. non compare to the sound of this. The set up is top notch! Great frets and crowned perfect with no sharp edges. If this got lost I would buy it again in a heart beat!!! It has a nice feel to it with not to much weight. Value for you buck is the best out there. if you closed your eyes and i played a Taylor T5 and this I bet you would pick the TL-6.
