Default A little on the higher side

About 8 months ago, I started searching for a 'knock around' guitar to take to the beach and camping. Although I love the GS Mini, my long arms made it a little uncomfortable for me. I stumbled on a prototype Taylor Academy 10e that was for sale at Wildwood guitars. These typically come with layered Sapele back and sides, but this one had Walnut b/s. For $600, I cannot put this guitar down. Short scale, arm bevel, and very good tone. Putting Silk and Bronze strings on this really sealed the deal for me. They cut down the 'zing' and added a very mellow tone to it. It is just so much fun to play.

(lots of reflections, sorry)
