I never believed in that de-humidifier stuff until my Taylor 314 cracked in the lower bout. It's mahogany which is susceptible to cracking anyway but it is a legitimate issue.Thanks for the info. I remember seeing a picture of a Tacoma recently where the soundhole was not under the strings but in the upper left portion of the top. I think they still may make that model. The one I played has a normal centered soundhole. I would like to hear what the offset soundhole Tacoma sounds like, it sure looked interesting!! I keep coming across these guitars that are no longer produced, but they are made out of top quality woods and craftsmanship is good, made in the USA what can I say, I'm talking about the Guild Contemporary series & Willy Porter Signature Model. I'm going broke buying humidifiers to put in the cases of these guitars cause I know they have been setting in a warehouse somewhere for who knows how long. Gary
Tacoma, Guild, Ovation... they're all Fender guitars! Fender never could build a decent acoustic so they just bought some companies! Guild went through catastrophic changes that almost killed them. I owned a Guild 212 12 string that didn't impress me much. Heavy and dense and really hard to play. It would take a lot to get me to buy another Guild! They did take over Tacoma's production facility in Tacoma, Washington.
