A terrific 12-string for us Southpaws

Comments about Taylor 355-CE Left-Handed 12-String Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Despite the fact that 10% of all us people on this planet are lefties, we find it tough to find good selections of high-quality guitars. Over the years, I've been fortunate to build a good collection of L-Martins, L-Fenders and L-Gibsons. I had never played an L-12-string until I bought this Taylor. I had to have one as I had grown tired of playing You Wear it Well, Cut Across Shorty, Tangerine and other rock classics on 6s. What this model lacks in eye candy it more than makes up for in performance. It is a highly playable box with perfect action, an electric-fast fretboard and stunning tone. I will never need another 12-string. This one is amazing. And it sounds great plugged or unplugged.
Yes, it's a rather plain looking box compared to some other 12s with more bling. But if you are primarily seeking booming, sustaining and even tone, great action, spectacular craftmanship, a silky fretboard, look no further.
It was perfect out of the box. Set up was spot on. Not a blemish, nick, or ding. Frets were aligned precisely. Tuning machines tight. And this is Taylor quality, folks. Like Gibson and Martin, these U.S.-made guitars are simply the best on the planet. Again, it is a rather plain-looking instrument, but the craftmanship is top shelf.
Okay, I gave it only a 9. I'm cheap. I always want to pay less for more. This is a fantastic instrument at the price point.

Awesome 12-String Lefty.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Taylor 355-CE Left-Handed 12-String Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar in late November of last year, and so far, this guitar has been simply marvelous. The neck is super sleek for a 12-string, and with a satin finish, it is amazingly comfortable. The cutaway allows for great fret access if ever needed, as well. For being a jumbo-sized guitar, it is extremely light. It alslo sounds wonderful plugged in; the tone is simply bright and crisp on the high end, as well as warm and clear on the low end. There are 3 simple knobs on the opposite side of the cutaway - bass, treble, and volume - allowing quick tonal adjustments as needed. The tuners keep your strings in tune very well, and need little-to-none tuning from time to time. Besides all of its great performance specs, it is a simply beautiful guitar. The gloss-top with black/creme trim and satin sides, back, neck, and headstock are an awesome combination. The ebony bridge and fingerboard are pretty sweet, too - not to mention the awesome Taylor pickguard. It also comes with a super-sturdy Taylor hardshell case and Elixir strings, so you know this guitar will be safe and sound great. All in all, though, through its beauty and great tones, it has simply got to be one of the best left-handed acoustic-electrics available. If you have the money to buy this guitar, don't hesitate or think about spending on a rather more expensive lefty, you will be more than satisfied with this guitar.

best 12 string for $

By cpsdawg

from Athens, GA

Comments about Taylor 355-CE Left-Handed 12-String Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this about 2 months ago. Lefty guitars are hard to find much less 12 strings. Taylor has the best neck and playability of any 12 string out there. Sounds great unplugged or plugged in. Not fancy from a finish standpoint, but the sound and playability more than make up for that. I have other lefties (gretsch, gibson, fender). I never had the opportunity to play a lefty 12 string much. Been playing 6 strings for 25 yrs and this 12 string is a breath of fresh air for my playing.
