Taylor Electrics!?!

Check this out . . .

http://www.taylorelectricguitars.com...aspx?modelid=2

This is one of the most gorgeous guitars I've seen in a while. The bridge looks superb, and the fretboard is an ebony 15" radius. Shorter scale length, but I bet its a blast to play. Thoughts?

Re: Taylor Electrics!?!

They are nice, but not $3100 nice. I like the Custom, but the 15" radius bums me out, not sure about the sapele neck and body either.

Re: Taylor Electrics!?!

I know Taylor could of done more with them, but its a start, we will have custom models coming out later on, I waiting on my final judgement on them until I can borrow on for a show, but its going to be pretty hard to beat the T5 im currently using....

They are a bit pricy too.

Re: Taylor Electrics!?!

Wow, awesome, thats just what the world needs, another single cut LP style electric guitar, its like they tried to innovate everything but that. And for that price I think people would rather just buy a Gibson. Please, Please Taylor, just stick to Acoustics, its what you do the best

Except that the standard is more like $1800 and the custom $2300 and i think the "low end" one $1300

Re: Taylor Electrics!?!

Well the site says the "standard" is $2300. If it retails for $1500 it could be a sweet axe. I mean thats LP studio range if I'm not mistaken?

Re: Taylor Electrics!?!

I like the look of the Classic, should be a fun guitar to play. I'm sure they won't trash their rep with half assed guitars.
