  • Taylor 518e (2014)

    I am very pleased with this guitar. I needed a little bit more bottom end and volume than what my Taylor GS was able to push, and the GO design does the job. Whether fingerpicking or strumming, the bass is very musical and lively... with plenty of volume to reach the back of the room that I play in, on Sunday mornings... for the kids at church.
