    Just picked it up. the story behind this piece of art is that of fate and really too long to type. but I love it. the top has already begun to open up. i hATED the original es2 but this is a little better with the updated preamp. gonna try to mess with the weird saddle piezo poles to dial it in further. any advice is welcome!

    NGD dream guitar!

    What a beauty! I've never played a 200 series Taylor that I didn't like. Congrats!

    That is pretty. While I am not much for Taylors I do like Koa wood. Those fan braced guitars Martin made for Southern California Music CO. in the 1910s and 1920s are some of the best fingerpickers I have ever run across.

    A beauty. I can visualize it now on a cheap stand between the drummer and the bass player at a gig on a small stage.
