    Totally amazed of the sound quality of this guitar. The playability is remarkable as I have never played a 12 string as it’s as easy as playing my Gibson 6 string. Finger picking will take time getting use to but will enjoy the journey.

    Really impressed with my Taylor 856. I already own an 815 ce, T5, and 412 ceN. Happy to add this to my gear. Exactly as described in excellent condition and plays like a dream. Shipped almost immediately after ordered amd received it 26 hours later. Fantastic service.
