Know your player profile
The real discovery happens when you pick up a guitar and play.
In addition to shapes and woods, your acoustic tone also has a lot to do with your personal playing technique. Do you have a heavy or light touch with your strumming/picking hand? The next time you're in a music store, try comparing several guitars that have the same body style but different woods. Or the same woods with different body styles. You'll start to connect with certain tones and, ultimately, find the Taylor that fits you best.
And remember, whichever body style, wood combination, or type of Taylor you choose, you can always rely on Taylor's signature playability, quality, and ongoing customer support.
