Taylor with a bevel? Should have just gone the whole way and bought an Ovation.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Had great low action out of the box, no fret buzz or other undesirable things, really comfy with the bevel on the body and neck feels a lot like a slightly thicker version of my Strat. I like!
My 14 year-old niece just bought one of these too.

It did occur to me, but I didn't want anyone to think I was heterosexual.

Nice couple of vids from Taylor and Elixir, pretty stoked they work together as they are my favourite string manufacturer!
