My dad and both younger brothers are pretty much completely bald and have been since their 20’s. I’m close to 52 [emoji15] and still have a pretty good amount of hair, although my forehead has been slightly growing over the years and I’m starting to get a few “highlights” in my sideburns...
The more I look at your picture the more it looks like what you're seeing is the nut is taller on the bass side and slopes down on the treble side. Try taking a look at it again without the nut in the photo and it looks straight.
I wouldn't really know what to look for to see if a neck is twisted just by eyeing it, but the measurements and methods mentioned by earlier posters would help. I know I can't tell from your pictures. From what I know about Taylors, I think it's highly unlikely that the neck is twisted.
I have one guitar with a K&K Pure Mini and one with a Baggs Lyric. They both sound great. Neither needs a pre-amp. I just plug right into my acoustic amp/PA and use the knobs on it to make adjustments.
The Lyric probably sounds just a little better, and it has a battery and a volume control...
Wow. This thread has really grown since the last time I checked in.
Here’s my setup for my next gig, which is a actually the same setup as the last gig.
Carvin Stagemate with extension speaker.
Martin HD-28 with K&K Pure Mini
(The lights belong to the venue but I might get some...
I also have a Dm3. I don’t know the exact year but I’ve always believed it to be from 1984. I hardly play it now but it’s the guitar I learned on and brings back lots of fond memories.

That's funny--I used to always think about that. Sometimes people would comment, "You guys sounded great but you sure were loud!" to which I would ask, "How loud? Louder than the organ at the other services?"
The answer to that would usually be "Well...uh...I... Ok! See you next week!"
Our church band went away a couple of years ago. Sometimes I miss playing but what I don't miss are the ego trips, drama, and all the headaches involved.
I have to say I don't mind just sitting in the congregation listening to the organist and the choir.
I liked it overall, but the physical appearance of some of the actors threw me. I would see a familiar character (Todd) and think, "Wow! He looks a lot different after 10 years!" and then realize the story takes place the same day as the series ended.
I just finished watching it. I always liked Pinkman because he’s seemed like he was a good guy deep inside and even though he wanted to get out of the business, he kept getting sucked back in.
It wasn’t a riveting suspenseful crime drama, but it was good to see what became of Jessie.
Actually you can get a new D-18 for about $1,800 if you know where to look and how to ask.
I have a 2015 D-18 and it's really all I could ever ask for in a guitar. I bought it brand new and got a great deal on it.
