Taylors are voiced for their ES2 electronics, no boomy bass is their forte. For most unplugged acoustic players, they are not first choice. Their new Grand Pacific models are the latest attempt to attract acoustic players, they got out of the pure acoustic only market ~2008.
I picked up a 2007 GA5 acoustic last year as a kick-around, traded it recently for a Furch walnut/sitka OM, came to my senses, one of my better moves. 🙂
