    Hi Folks
    I’ve had this guitar for about 3 yrs [bought new] and I guess the ‘dew is off the rose’, or it’s delayed buyer’s remorse or somethin’. I’m just not as pleased w/ it as I once was. What’s the general opinion of this guitar? If I decide to part w/ it, what’s the goin’ market value?[w/Taylor hsc and strap] thanks for any input-Jake

      Before you go selling your Taylor,…. may I suggest that you try changing a few things?

      I see that it has a Tusq nut and saddle. Tusq isn’t the best material for great sound and is often replaced by professional musicians. Why not take it to a local luthier and have bone ones fitted for it? Then add some bone or brass bridge pins.

      In the end it’s up to you if you like the guitar or not, but there was a reason you bought this rose in the first place. Why not give her a chance?

      I don’t have an opinion on the guitar, Jake, but two are listed on eBay by sellers as mint-used with HSC. One at $660 and the other at $800. Hope that gives you some idea.
