We tried a taylor made in Mexico among others. Pretty disappointing guitar for the price. Short story: We both were amazed by the quality of the chinese made Yamaha LJX6 CA. absolutely flawless and incredibly well set up right from the box. Sounded and played like a much more expensive guitar and beautiful, too. what makes it on topic here is that, while I let him try a few suggested acoustic guitars in peace, I went to the electric guitars section and tried a bunch. I rarely have access to a huge guitar store and it was quite a treat. the biggest shock was how ugly i found the gretsch white falcon with its gold flake body binding, etc. It may be an acquired taste. Les paul standards and tradtional were nice. Fender american standards were disappointing. Did those guys get a bad batch? I tried a few and not a single one of them I would have bought for 1,100 euros. Anyone from Europe went to that store? What did you think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
