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
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

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
