    Nice guitar

    Guitar is actually Martin not Taylor. Very pleased with it, also surprised to receive it so quickly - 5 stars on all counts

    Easy to play and Great Sound

    I bought this to learn as an adult beginner and was researching various guitars for smaller hands to replace the Yamaha FG that was a slight bit too big. It was well worth the purchase and has inspired me to practice more than I had been using the previous hand me down. Easy action and fantastic sound.
