This is great sound. Good sound balance. Of course, it looks very beautiful :)



A one of a kind sound


I love this guitar. I just bought an acoustic a few weeks ago. Tested every guitar in the room. This guitar is beautiful and has a natural reverb that is awesome. A little over my initial budget but worth every penny. Make sure you try this one out the next time you're in store.



Recommend 10/10


Great sound. Great feel. Great looks. You will not be disappointed. The neck is pretty narrow for finger picking and reduces room for error when fretting. All expected when I made the purchase. Does it's job and exceeds expectations.



My favorite Taylor guitar, would buy again and again.


This is an amazing guitar! Perfect for travel and even though it is a mini, it sounds better than a full sized guitar. The koa wood is phenomenal. I enjoy everything about this guitar.



I would buy this product again.


I love this guitar! Its one of the most beautiful guitars that I have seen. Its a mini guitar and has a really full sound. For me the price was perfect. I'm an old guy,intermediate player ,so I just play at home. During this recent virus its the perfect entertainment to just play at home. I highly recommend it. Buy it.
