Comments about Taylor NS32-CE Nylon String Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2010 Model):
I've owned this guitar for about 8 months.
It has a neck like a Taylor, so if you play Taylor steel strings, you will immediately like the feel. It is a hybrid neck -- meaning not a traditional classical neck. Personally, I wish Taylor would make a nylon string with a traditional classical neck, but so far I don't see that in their line-up. If you are used to a traditional classical guitar, this is a little bit different. The hybrid neck is convex curvature on the fretboard, instead of slightly concave. It is narrower and more similar to a traditional acoustic steel string guitar.
Overall this is a really nice guitar in terms of build quality, appearance, fit and finish. The electronics are decent and function well. The tuners are good quality. I find the sound a little bit stiff or sanitized, perhaps because I was playing a cedar top guitar previously and this is a spruce top. The low end seems a little bit thin to me, perhaps it will "open up" a little bit with more play But it does take a fairly hard/loud crescendos well and stays "together". It doesn't fall apart under increases in intensity like some cheaper classical's I've played and I like that a lot about this guitar. With amping and EQ the slightly thin low end can be adjusted for. Played sans amp, the bass response is why I graded this a 9 instead of a 10.
Its also annoying that its very hard to find these in stock in any guitar store prior to purchase. I had to purchase it sight and sound unheard...although I did get to play a nylon string Taylor (cheaper one) at a Taylor Roadshow. However, even working with Taylor directly, they couldn't ID a store anywhere in Northern California that had an NS32 in stock when I was trying to purchase. I had to go online and order it to get it and essentially to even try it. If I wasn't already an owner of other Taylors, I wouldn't have made the purchase at all.
I wish I had an opportunity to play this NS32 and an NS72 side by side before I purchased, because I think perhaps I would have liked the NS72 more. Taylor should do more to encourage dealers to stock a couple of their nylon string guitars.
