Taylor has an entirely different design ethos than SCGC. It’s not worse or better, just different.
Taylor seems to focus on neck design/ease of play and then make the sound boxes (bodies) as identical as possible from unit to unit across a model range.
This is a good way to go if you’re building thousands of instruments a year rather than hundreds.
SCGC being smaller can focus on the entire instrument, take more time per instrument, source more unusual (small quantity) woods. The result is a wonderful sounding instrument every time.
