I am a lefty non-pro senior. I play solely for the enjoyment of close family/friends. Certainly, I do not have any professional aspirations. The Lyndhurst, OH Sam Ash placed a special order for me. I couldn't be more thrilled with the service from Sam Ash or my new Taylor T5z. Both exceptional. What attracted me to the T5z was the thin line. It makes it very easy to hold/play. It also must be stated that the range in tones that can be played are perfect for me. Plenty, but not overwhelming. I really don't have a negative comment about my new favorite guitar. It goes perfectly well with my two other lefty Taylor's: a "GS Mini" and a travel "Baby". Bottom line. An excellent guitar. Absolutely no buyer remorse here. And again, thank you to the folks at Sam Ash for their great service - from demonstration/consultation to seeing the order thru to ensuring that the setup was optimal (which it was - it is a Taylor, after all), upon delivery, etc.
