No-one mentions Taylors being a bit sort of brash - like a bit twangy, and tizzy in the treble: very sort of country sounding. It was teh way I always felt about them, and I've seen some silly money paid here in teh UK for them - several thousands of pounds sterling (like up to about seven thousand, adn with the dollar as it is that's a lot of dollars) - and never really felt they justified it.

Now I know of two players who used to feel the same way, and just in the last few months both have gone and fallen in love with different Taylors. I havene't seent he instruments yet, just heard the stories.

Does anyone think Taylors are growing up a bit - less immediate impression and more maturity and soul in the sound?
