Fans of Hawaiian koa will love the look, feel and sound of this all-koa Grand Auditorium. A shaded edgeburst elevates the vintage appeal of the solid koa top, which is paired with layered koa back and sides, while a gloss finish wraps the body in a rich sheen. The Grand Auditorium’s musical versatility makes this a great all-purpose guitar for both strumming and fingerpicking, and the hardwood koa top will even out a lively attack to produce a focused, linear voice. Player-friendly modern features include a cutaway and Taylor’s ES2 acoustic electronics. Among the distinctive appointments are a single-ring faux pearl rosette in an interlocking "fishbone" pattern, black binding, Italian acrylic small diamond inlays, and chrome tuners. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.Learn More
1995 doesn't seem that long ago does it? To me anyway, it feels like maybe four years ago. It's 23 years! Wow, 23 years, and I don't even want to think what that is in dog years. We have a 1995 Taylor 615 jumbo. Hardcore Taylor fans will consider this a vintage guitar. We really like this guitar; everybody here in the shop that is. It sounds awesome. The maple back and sides are highly figured. Really beautiful flame. The frets are fine, showing very little wear. The action is low and fast. There are signs of playing wear on mostly on the top of the guitar. Some dings, but nothing major. No cracks or splits. Overall the condition is very good. Remember it is 23 years old. For such a big bodied guitar it weighs next to nothing, and you can feel the thing vibrating the second you take it from the case. It's opened up beautifully, and there is definitely an "older", more forthright Americana sound emitting from this guitar than its more contemporary siblings. It has a playability that is much easier than a Gibson or Guild jumbo. It's loud and punchy, with string separation and all-over articulation that is significantly more pronounced than the new Gibson J-35 and J-45s we've played of late, which may be a good or a bad thing depending on your tastes. Has an active Fishman under saddle pickup. Overall it's great guitar, almost vintage, great playing and sounding, at a great price. Comes with original hard shell case.Learn More

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if Les Paul hadn't lived, or if he had played flute? We know there would be some incredible innovations in flutes but it would left us poor guitars players in a bit of a lurch. Anyway, Les played guitar and we are all better off for it. Here we have a 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro. It's a beauty! It has a heritage cherry sunburst finish on a great looking flamed maple top with chrome hardware. The neck has a 60's Slim Taper profile that's very comfortable and fast. The frets are in perfect condition. The neck is straight and true. It sounds great and plays great. It's perfect and ready for action right out of the box. It shows no wear. None. It is clean as a pin. Not a single scratch, ding, or nick. Could easily pass for brand new. Comes with all paper work. The pickguard that has never been installed, and the original hardshell case.Learn More
Have you ever heard "Good Times Bad Times" by the Stones? Not to be confused with the great Zep tune. It is a workout on the acoustic 12-string, played beautifully by Keith. Hey, stop what you're doing and listen to it. You back? Good. Ain't that something? I love the 12-string acoustic. The sound is phenomenal. I wish more people would use it. It really adds another dimension to music. Anyway, this Taylor 360e 12-String is a wonderful example of a killer 12-string. Fantastic 12-String sound! A phenomenal guitar at a great price.

The wood pairing of blackwood and mahogany on the Taylor 360e yields a smooth response that promises to deliver a bold and balanced sound with a thick shimmer across the middle register. The slightly broader waist of Taylor's Dreadnought shape helps bring out the lower midrange frequencies. On a 12-string, it generates a thick, husky midrange power that complements the crispness and shimmer of the octave strings. A shaded edgeburst adds a tasteful vintage look to the rich-grained mahogany top. Additional appointments include a black pickguard, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, black binding with crisp white top trim, a 3-ring rosette, and satin finish.
This LsL T Bone T-Bone Model is a modern rendition of one of the best '50's or '60's T-style guitars you will ever play. This is not a partscaster guitar like many in its price range. The T-Bone features a swamp ash body, fuller 50's style profile maple neck, and LSL custom-wound pickups. The metal parts, hardware and fretboards are manually aged to create a near-authentic, played (but not beaten) appearance. The thinnest possible nitrocellulose lacquer finish is applied and then weather checked. This contributes to a very airy, open, articulate tone that is then enhanced by LsL's hand-wound pickups. Played acoustically, this guitar is extremely loud and resonant...that's always the sign of a superior instrument. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. It's ready to take directly to your gig right now. It sounds great, plays great, and feels great. It is as close as you can get to achieving the tone, playability, look, and feel of a great vintage guitar.Learn More

I love, love, love a 12 string guitar. There are so many great 12 string songs. "Walk Right In" by the Rooftop Singers immediately comes to mind, as does Leadbelly, The Byrds, Leo Kottke, early Stones, and so on. This is an all Koa guitar with a cutaway, and pickup system. Built in 2004, this guitar precedes Taylor's BTO program, and was custom built for a local artist. You hardly ever see an all Koa Taylor 12-string. In fact, this is only the second one I've ever seen in the past 20 years. The koa wood is gorgeous, it is absolutely lovely. Tortoise shell body and neck binding. Expression system electronics. The guitar is in good condition, shows some slight overall play wear. It sounds amazing, like a great grand piano. Sublime really (I know that sounds over the top but sometimes I just can't help myself) The frets are fine, showing some slight wear but with lots of life in them. Everything is good and ready to go. You'll love this guitar, I know I do. Comes with original hard case.Learn More

"We had this one made up special". You've heard that before, but this time it's actually true. Eric, our beloved leader, ordered this Bourgeois OM all-Mahogany with a few special things. First off, this model usually comes with spruce top, but this was ordered with a mahogany top. These also usually have tortoise color binding, but this has a multi-layered Ivoroid binding and Ivoroid pickguard, with matching Ivoroid tuning keys. The Ivoroid touch is absolutely stunning against the dark, reddish finish. So, an all mahogany OM size guitar. How cool is that? Think of say, a 1946 Gibson L-G2 all mahogany: it is similar as far as tone, but with more balance and clarity. The all-mahogany style is also reminiscent of Martin's 0M-15 style, but done with much nicer aesthetics. It is perfect for finger-style guitar. This guitar is not only beautiful, the sound is unbelievable! It's my favorite acoustic guitar in the shop right now. It's awesome on every level: playabilty, sound, looks, it's got it all. An American Beauty, that's what this guitar is. Comes with hard case. Oh, and you can tell all your friends, "They had this one made up special". You'll be the envy of the neighborhood.Learn More

Hey, I love my job. I get to look at cool guitars, play them, touch them, then write about them...and don't tell anybody, I get paid for this. HOW ABOUT THAT? Here we have a new Eastman T64V AMB. This guitar is modeled after the Gibson ES-330 and Epiphone Casino from the late fifties and sixties. It is a thin line, hollow body, with two P-90 style pickups, and a Bigsby vibrato. How cool is that? A Bigsby!! It has an aged varnish, Amber finish. Just an amazing guitar. If you are into The Beatles, early Stones, Slim Harpo, Howling Wolf, you'll like this. They all played models similar to this. It's my favorite new guitar in the store right now.Learn More

How about that model number? Is that cool or what? All you need to know about this fine guitar is within in this rather cryptic number. A special number for a special guitar. It is a 35th Anniversery, Grand Symphony, with Walnut back & sides. This is a fine, fine, super-fine guitar. The walnut back is absolutely spectacular. We've never seen walnut that looks better then this...it's absolutely jaw dropping. One of a limited edition of only 35 guitars. It has a sharp, Florentine cutaway, the best Gotoh 510 tuners, ebony fingerboard with 35 inlaid at the 12th fret, and a walnut backstrap overlay on the back of the headstock. The edge bevel on the bass side of this guitar's lower bout is gorgeous; inspired in part by the work of renowned luthier Grit Laskin.
This is what Taylor has to say about it: "This Taylor guitar showcases walnut wood for the back and sides, offering warm, deep tone, balanced projection, and clarity, in a stunningly complex appearance. The wood set was specially selected for its unique aesthetic qualities, making for an extremely limited run. The Taylor XXXV-GS-W acoustic-electric guitar also features a Sitka spruce top with Taylor's tone-enhancing CV bracing, an abalone rosette, Gotoh tuners, a bone nut and saddle, and the Expression System pickup. The Taylor guitar includes an ebony armrest, ebony binding, and a Florentine cutaway".Learn More
