Hmmm, very insightful Moosie. I like that analogy of Taylor for acoustics and PRS for electrics and maybe why both are considered "modern". Both companies developed their guitars "later" and my guess is that they were developed for contemporary playing. That might be the reason I tend not to select either for my own kind of old school playing. Being a Gibby fan, I must admit that I enjoy playing my wife's GS Mini, but only because I don't have a dread and that small Taylor puts out a surprisingly good dread sound.
