Re: Taylor 815 ce Over Rated!
When you get into guitars at that price point, guitar to guitar, they can have
completely different characteristics, especially with all the different tone woods luthiers are experimenting with now. Were you comparing a dreadnought to a grand auditorium style? They are "made" to have very different tonal qualities.
Someone buying a guitar like this, I'm assuming is a near pro or pro guitarist.
Like the guitars differ, each artist will have very specific things they are looking for in an instrument. Mine and yours could vary radically, and we'd choose different guitars.
Every now and then there's a notsogood guitar that makes it out of the factory. Even built exactally the same, the woods different, days different................
Evaluate the instrument on what works for you, and try a lot of them.
Taylor vs Martins just paints too big of a brush stroke, to even begin to make an argument out of this. There's too many other extrodinary luthiers out there.
just my $.02
