This popular cutaway Grand Auditorium entices players of all styles with an array of sonic delights, starting with the classic wood pairing of solid rosewood and Sitka spruce. The guitar is now powered by our award-winning V-Class internal bracing, which not only enhances the voicing with more volume, sustain and projection, but also improves the intonation along the entire fretboard, yielding greater clarity, consistency and harmonic agreement between notes. As a result, rosewood’s full-spectrum voice, featuring rich overtones, takes on an even more pleasing high-fidelity sound that translates into a more expressive response. It makes a fantastic guitar for virtually any application. The appointments strike a tasteful balance between style and restraint, featuring white binding, Renaissance fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic, and a full-gloss body. The guitar ships with Taylor ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.Learn More

1985 doesn't seem like it was 33 years ago. When you say something happened in 1990 my mind thinks of that as being just 10 years ago. Time sure does fly. Most Taylor aficionados will consider this 710, built in 1985, a vintage model. Made in the original Lemon Grove factory, Taylor only made 681 guitars in 1985. Vintage Taylors are known for having plenty of volume and this one lives up to this reputation with ease. Easy to play and light as a feather, it could fill a large room with minimal effort from the player. Frets are in near-perfect condition. Overall a well seasoned, fantastic instrument that has opened up beautifully in its 33 years. In great condition, with the typical cosmetic wear you'd expect. No repairs, no separations, and no issues. Passive Thinline under saddle pickup. The pickguard has been replaced with a new one, and the original one will be included inside the case. Just recently set up with Elixir 16102 phosphor bronze medium string. It is ready to go.Learn More
This is my favorite guitar in the whole world. That's a pretty bold statement I know, but I'm in love with vintage Gibson J-45 guitars. I especially love tobacco sunburst, adjustable bridge J-45 guitars. Here we have a 1960 Gibson J-45 ADJ in tobacco sunburst, ceramic adjustable bridge with a newer, non-original chipboard case. Serial number #R5835-19. It's a one-owner guitar, and it's been played a lot. There is pickwear around the soundhole, and pickguard cracks. That's fairly standard for models from this era. The original owner put his initials with mailbox letter on the headstock and front of the guitar. They are small and unobtrusive, I would leave them there, It adds character and history in my humble opinion, but they can be removed. The neck has a 1-11/16" nut width. The bridge has a slight lift at the edges on the treble and bass sides...it hasn't moved in 30 years, so it should be fine for many more years to come. The overall condition is very good. Some nicks, dings and scratches, and some pick wear, as mentioned earlier. Action is a respectable .100" at the 12th frets of the low E string and .070" at the 12th fret of the high E string. This is a solid, well loved guitar that sounds like a million dollars. It's awesome, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. To find a one-owner vintage guitar doesn't happen that often these days. The gentleman we got it from is 96, and he bought it new. That is so cool.Learn More
Do you like fancy guitars? I sure do. I always think of them as cowboy guitars for some reason or another. I remember watching reruns of old Gene Autry movies and being blown away by the guitars. Then in the 60's we had country music every Saturday here in Memphis on TV. The guitars were mind blowing. Now this is a fancy guitar: a 1999 Gibson Hummingbird Custom Koa. Lord, Lord, it's an eyecatcher. Made by Gibson in 1999 in Bozeman, Montana. Gibson's famous Hummingbird has been masterfully recreated with abalone rosette and top binding, hand-engraved iconic birds and butterflies on the headstock and bridge, Sitka Spruce top, and beautiful AAA Koa back and sides. This one has a cherry sunburst...a rare option for this Koa version. It also features gold Grover engraved tuners, and ebony fingerboard with Orpheum-style abalone inlays. Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this thing, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming those first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking lead lines. The tonewood combination of spruce and koa allow for a clear and balanced sound. It's very clean, shows very, minimal playing wear. Some finishing checking on the top. Some button wear on the back. The neck is straight and true. Action is low and fast. The frets are in near perfect condition showing only the slightest hints of being played. The neck is perfect with a 1-11/16" width nut. Besides being a stunner, it is amazing sounding. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
Taylor's flagship Grand Auditorium now boasts even more sonic delights with the addition of their groundbreaking V-Class bracing architecture. The classic tonewood combination of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce still delivers its characteristic blend of warmth, low-end presence, and high-range sparkle, but V-Class bracing elevates that tone to new heights. Notes sustain longer, allowing rosewood’s rich overtones to bloom with more clarity than ever, and the advanced bracing scheme introduces greater power and tunefulness across the entire tonal spectrum for a rich and expressive sound. Standout material features include a smoky ebony fretboard sourced from Taylor’s Crelicam mill in Cameroon, maple binding, rosewood edge trim, an abalone rosette edged with rosewood, and mother-of-pearl Element fretboard and peghead inlays. The 814ce also includes a Venetian cutaway and Taylor's ES2 acoustic electronics, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.Learn More
