    Taylor SolidBody Classic Electric Guitar

    Solid body electric was designed entirely from the ground up, and features Taylor's own humbuckers, bridge, tone controls and body aesthetic. Solid swamp ash body with a satin finish maple neck. Indian rosewood fretboard.

    I like the guitar dimensions and features, but am a bit ambivalent about that pickguard on a white finish.

      I always prefer separate volume and tone controls for both pickups but a lot of makers don't offer it. I would like to play one of these though. Looks cool.

        Tried one when they 1st came out. Nice pickups. I would also prefer a 2 vol 2 tone config.
        I liked it, but not enough to justify purchasing it.
        Looks wise, its a little bland.

        +1.  I'm not as thrilled with the look but I suspect, after playing for a few minutes, it would grow on me.  Good playing guitars tend to do that, in my experience.

      Not...

       

      ...not digging the proportions, the neck looks stubby, and it's just "WHITE"...

        Not.

        I have an irrational dislike of Taylors (Was mostly underwhelmed by their acoustics given the asking price). I'm sure they're good enough but I'm prejudiced, I guess.

          Ambivalent, neither hot not cold. Some nice touches, but the shape and proportions are very unexciting. It looks like a PRS MIRA that someone tried to build from memory.

            This.  I would expect something a little more exciting or groundbreaking coming out of Taylor.  I've tried a Taylor electric or two and I find them very uninspiring and underwhelming.  

             

            FWIW-I own an old MIA Big Baby-it plays nice and feels great but the build quality and everything about is incredibly cheap.  Based on trying a lot of higher end acoustics lately, I'd take a Martin, Guild or Gibson  over a Taylor almost any day.

          I'd like it a lot more in an SG-red ...
