Reply To: Taylor vs. SCGC


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.
