(yet) Another new toy...

I've just got my hands on an absolutely beautiful TAYLOR T-5.

This is definitely going to be my last new guitar for a while, because I have been treating myself to a few to many goodies lately, but I was offered it at a price I could not refuse.

I really got lucky with this, since if I had the choice of any colour, this would have been what I'd have gone for and even the case is cool.

There is a tiny ding on the front of the guitar which on a top end guitar like this knocked a lot of the second hand asking price, but I can't even get the mark to show up in photos so I'm not bothered by it at all and anyway, I bought this to play not hang on the wall and look at :-)

I just cannot say enough good things about this.

The build and feel are just amazing.

As an acoustic guitar it sounds fantastic, lovely very natural acoustic sound and it's surprisingly good in electric mode as well. It's not a compromised half way house, it really is a great acoustic guitar AND an electric guitar.

It plays well, I can get acoustic sounds and play all THE SOHO COBRAS solos on the same guitar.

Just phenomenal!

OK, waffle over, here are some more pics!
