When the girls' volleyball team at my high school began winning state championships in the early 80s, I and the other members of my football squad were their loudest cheerleaders. Because we were a philosophical lot, we opted for cheers that got to the essence of the matter, such as " Greater number of points!" and " Do more stuff like that!".
It turns out that this makes a lot of sense in the guitar business, too: When our bestselling Taylor guitar is a mahogany-topped 12-fret, we Do More Stuff Like That. So when Taylor announced that the mahogany-topped Shaded Edge Burst 300s would be available in a 12-fret, it took me about 15 seconds to place our first order. And I'm glad I did—with the sweet tone of the mahogany/sapele combo filled out just a bit with some 12-fret warmth, this guitar is an affordable keeper.
