Taylor Acoustic Guitars: GC5 - Koi - Sea Turtle - Gray Whale - XXXV Parlor

I have 5 of Taylors guitars. The GC5 is a grand concert, Koi is a dreadnaught, the Sea Turtle is a grand auditorium, the Gray Whale is a grand concert, and the XXXV-P is a parlor. Each of these 5 guitars is a work of art. I recently returned from a visit of the Taylor factory and was extremely impressed with the detail and craftsmanship I observed. More importantly, they all sound unbelievable. I also have 6 Martin guitars and 4 Larrivee guitars, so I do have something to compare them too.
I highly recommend the factory tour as you will have the opportunity to play everyone of their models. If your really lucky you will have a chance to meet Bob Taylor in person--I was lucky--I got to meet him!
