    Ordered from Dave's. Just arrived FedEx. Well packed.
    Opened, then tuned, then played for a minute. Smiling.
    First impressions: very light, louder than I expected, gig bag better than expected.

    Time for photos (if the IMG gods allow):

    Hint on using imgur for images, use get share info, then copy the BBCode for the image and pastes. Do not use the image tool button.

    Build quality is the same.
    Necks are identical carves.
    Inlays are identical shapes and detail (perloid v abalone).
    P20 neck is bound, A55 unbound.
    Frets identical.
    Perloid tuners P20 vs chrome A55.
    Bridges are identical.

    The sound report is what is expected. The A55 projects more bass and has brighter highs.
    The P20 is just as loud and is warmer.
    Both guitars sustain for about a 10 count on a normal open strum.
    The P20 matte neck is slipperier, ie the A55’s gloss neck is tackier.

    Both guitars are excellent living room players.

    What a beauty! I'm thinking of swapping my Taylor 210 for one of these, and you're stoking the fire!
