I played a Taylor 615, but I wanted one with a cutaway, so I ordered the same guitar with a cutaway. When I recieved it I was not happy with it. I made the mistake of taking it home anf trying to get it to work. I finally gave up and traded my Taylor for a Santa Cruz and am absolutely thrilled that I did so. Taylors are very nice guitars, but as all guitar Companies that build high volume a few will slipp through that maybe should not have gone out. Keep searching, and playing until you find YOUR guitar!!
