Description

Taylor Guitars teamed up with fingerstyle legend Doyle Dykes in 2000 to pioneer a new variation on their Grand Concert body—and a few years later, this 2005 Taylor DDSM is nothing short of mesmerizing. This is not your standard Grand Concert in any sense of the word. The setup is glossy smooth; its an absolute breeze to play this guitar. The Quilted Maple back and sides have a beautiful figure and give the guitar its clean, crystal-clear tone. The Sitka Spruce top creates a voice which has an absolutely crisp projection. The sweet spot for this guitar is in the ambiguous line between the middle and upper registers—but the DDSM occupies this space with grace and ease. You'll be amazed at how many nuanced sounds you can unearth from the short-scale Ebony fretboard and Maple neck.

If this guitar were a physical place, it'd be the beach at night. There's just something about it, a quality like soft wind or clean glass, which comes out when I play this guitar, that makes me keep coming back to it. Think of it as a kind of mellowed clarity, without sounding tinny. I urge you to play this Taylor when you visit the shop.
 
Beautiful instrument with the tone focused on the mids and highs. This guitar is clear as a bell and would cut through any mix. It's really fun to play too because it has nice low action, but no buzzing.
