Thanks guys !!

I'm in love with this Guitar.
My local Music store had this guitar put up in a Climate-Controlled Closet in it's case since 1997. They thought no one would ever buy it because it was so expensive.
This Guitar has the Dove-Tail Neck joint instead of the Bolt-on neck and it is way above & beyond the new model 314 & 414 that they had in Stock in every way.
This Guitar just feels "right".

I installed a Fishman Active Thinline pickup in it tonight, plugged it into my home studio Acoustic rig which consists of a LR Baggs Paracoustic DI, Alesis 3630 Compressor & Alesis Midiverb IV going into 12" Powered Monitors and it blew me away.

Perfect, just perfect, in every way.
I've never heard a Acoustic Guitar that sounds this good plugged in.

I doubt I'll be gigging with this Guitar because, I'd have to kill the first person that touched it....LOL !!
However, I will spend many nights bathing in it's Heavenly Tone.

It's unbelievable how great this Guitar is.

Even the Wife didn't complain about how much it cost.

She saw the receipt and said, "Well, Anyone can look at that Guitar and see that it's worth it."
Love that Woman.

I love those guitars Grady! Taylor makes wonderful instruments. Period. They have the coolest guitar ads ever too.

I am really excited about your new direction and want to hear what you are doing.

That is a beautiful guitar. I would take a picture of it and save it in your email for insurance purposes. I do that with all of my gear now.

I love my Taylor. It's a 555 12 string from the original factory in Lemon Grove California. I can't say enough about the Taylor support crew either. I sent the guitar back to the factory for a midlife tune up and they sent it back to me in a factory case with their blessings insured for $6400, new nut, new bridge, and new electronics package. It has to be the best sounding, best playing guitar that I have ever owned. Records like a dream and is only used for that purpose although I did take it out to jam with Grady once. I guess he has really taken a liking to them.

Congradulations on the new axe brother..... I highly reccommend Taylors to everyone I know.
