Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine


Now, I'm positive that a lot of you guys and gals out there in flatpick land play Taylors, and I'd LOVE to hear your feedback about them. I've played Taylor guitars at festivals and music stores, but I've never owned one, so maybe my impressions and ideas about Taylor are all wrong? I think Taylor guitars are awesome, really, and I'm a person that used to hang out at the North Dallas Guitar Center most days, at least for a bit, just so that I could get my hands on all of those wonderful acoustic guitars in there.

Let me know what YOU think.

I've had one, a 510, which was Mahogony/Englemann. It had a really nice neck, played well, and I liked the guitar a lot. But, as is so often the case, another guitar came along and I let the 510 go to help finance it! I do think Taylors seem to have a distinct sound all their own, and they're selling a lot of guitars, so there about has to be a segment of the guitar playing public that prefer them.

Somehow, my link seems to disappear. . . .which I find quite ominous.

I play a Taylor 310 CE.  I have played some really nice Martins, Blueridges, Collings, etc.  For the price Taylor makes some great sounding top end acoustic instruments.  They tend to have more of a bright, sustained resonance than some other makers.  That sound is only recently become common in the "Bluegrass scene," still not in some places.  Hope that helps.

Hey Thanks, Jake!  It would get boring if everyone's guitar sounded the same!

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "
