    I bought a Taylor then turned around and bought an Eastman after purchasing the Eastman I felt like I had ripped off big time by Taylor. The Eastman is built in Beijing China the e40d I have will blow away most guitars it is the equivalent of a martin d41 at a third of the price. If you get a chance to try one out you will be dismayed they use premium woods and the craftsmanship is beautiful and I can’t say enough about the sound.

    If you want to see an interesting contrast, look up the Yamaha Guitar Factory tour. You'll see a lot more hands on crafting. I'm not saying hands on building necessarily better, it's just that if a hand built guitar is important to you, you will actually get something closer to that from Yamaha. Now I own three Taylors, a 514, 414 and 316, and they are with out a doubt the finest sounding and put together guitars I own, but they cost me over 6000.00 total to obtain. Three LL16s will set you back 2298.00 from Sweetwater and that's only if you pay their posted price. Calling them almost always gets you a lower price. The LL16s at 799.00 with much more hand crafting are all solid wood Engleman Spruce, Rosewood guitars and sound damned good. An equivalent Taylor will run you over 2500.00.

    Very very impressed with how they can make such an excellent instrument using robots. The music was great too. Can I have a single cutaway taylor for free. I could never afford one but just asking.

    No dovetail? Yamaha has dovetails on there cheapest offering. And as people pointed out. I thought it was a plant in indonesia judging from the workforce.

    Robots, robots, robots, and Chinese workers. So what they demand such a big money for? Made in USA?) Ha-ha Yamaha, Crafter and many other good mass-market brands make similar things but much cheaper. Yes, Taylor guitars sound good, but not for its money. 6,8,9 series are real high-end guitars so their prices are quite reasonable. But why people buy lower series? They can’t count their money? They have no ears? Or they simply want the best logo on their guitar heads?

    Not only do Taylors sound consistently great, but they are also the result of some serious innovation in regards to technology.

    Taylor is like the Apple equivalent of guitar industry. Employing robots and cheap ass labors to produce high quality guitars, and then charge arms and legs for them.

    nie kupiłbym takiej gitary gdzie wszystko jest robione przez maszyny 🙁 choć marka Taylor jest zacna znana i ma dobre brzmienie wybrałbym coś z moich południowych sąsiadów w Europie z Czech markę Furch lub Slovacka Dowina

    A CNC machine cannot put the soul of a guitar into it, like a real luthier could.

    I don't mind if most of it is made with machine, it's built alot more precise than handmade.

    Looks like these guitars would have no soul. And I don't mean that literally.

    "i am certainly under no uncertain delusion that I can start my own guitar construction company and build guitars for sale."
    "i will certainly not not use this knowledge that I did not obtain off the internet to build the atomic bomb of guitars. i promise." ?????
