My wife really wanted me to buy it, but I couldn't think of what I'd do with it. Too luscious a tone for my style of play.

Maybe I should have bought it anyway.
Just what do you play - outside of Freddie Green-style jazz comping I can't think of too much that guitar couldn't handle, and if I ever went the BTO route a Madi/Adi jumbo would've been my dream Taylor...
