just get someone to file the fret down or do it yourself

Before you give it back ask the store if they can set it up to level the frets and only after that decide to return it.

I also picked up the very same guitar last week and find my action low yet the frets are fine.

One last thing, Taylors are know to be hard to hydrate, if they dry out the frets may lift or wood could shrink. If the store did not have good humidity control this will happen.
I keep mine in a hard case with a wet noodle type thing in it, the noodle dries every 3 days so you can imagine how much water it is absorbing.

The only option they gave me was that they could to a re-fret or return it.

Will do! I'm hoping to find something within my price range though.

Not sure what your range is but i was shopping in the $1,000 range and found lots of great Martins. If you go with no electronics and no cut away its even cheaper.

Check out some Canadian guitars by Seagull or Simon Patrick, they are both made by Godin and are very solid well selling guitars up here. The prices are also really good and it would be something different for you down South.

That sucks man. I have the 214CE and it is flawless. I love that guitar. Such a great instrument. Until I can afford a Rainsong, it's what I'm rolling with.

I haven't given up on the brand or that model but I just have to start looking again. I'm hoping to get something similar in tone so I would think the first place to start is other Taylor guitars...

Look at Larrivee guitars (I have a NGD thread). Try and find one used, because they sell cheap, but the quality is definitely not cheap. I bought a used L-03R for $850. It has solid rosewood back and sides! Taylor doesn't offer that until you reach $2K.

The voicing is much different than Taylor's. People seem to just call them a mix of Martin and Taylor, which is believe is a good description. Taylor's are bright and snappy, while the Larrivee has more depth and detail without sounding dull, but still retains some brightness.

I'm primarily a fingerstyle player and don't strum often so my opinion may be worth nothing, but I still suggest you try one out and let your ears decide!

I'm looking into the Martin OMCPA4 and the Martin GPCPA4. I've played both and I'm leaning more towards the OMCPA4 but I'm looking at the specs and I can't tell what the difference is build-wise? Unintentionally, they also look like the Taylor and have the same tone woods.

Actually, those martins have Solid Sapele back and sides. The Taylor has Sapele Laminate. I find the difference between Laminate and Solid to be that Solid sounds fuller, and has more bass.

I have to agree. That is exactly what I heard in comparison to the Taylor. The Martin was darker. I feel like the Martin is better at single notes and arpeggios but I like the brightness the Taylor has for chords. The clarity the Taylor has in chords is great but the Martin is good too.
