Always love Sam Ash. The Taylor speaks For itself. I sold my Taylor'914 with Cindy Inlay yrs ago. This one sounds louder and feels better In hand. I think it was time to move away from the Cindy, but this guitar is not distinguishable at glance like the Cindy.... so if anything.... maybe they could've some something extra nice for their premier acoustic. But I love it!!! Amazing Taylor as usual.
