  Here is one of the nicest second hand Taylor guitars that has come through here in quite a while. A Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium 6 string, and I mean Custom from the ground up! To start with, the top is a beautiful Engelmann Spruce that has a spectacular tobacco sunburst. Take that and put a figured Koa binding around the body and around the neck and headstock and then you begin to understand what we have. The maple neck has a fretboard of ebony that, by request, has a tremendous amount of marbling. That fretboard blends really nicely with the Koa binding. The bridge is ebony as well, also with a good amount of marbling. There is a custom ordered rosette with a ring of that same figured Koa with a bound soundhole.
  The back and sides are beautiful "A" grade quilted maple finished in tobacco sunburst. The tuners are Gotoh 510's, antique gold finish with ebony buttons. These tuners are, in my opinion, the best, most accurate, and smoothest on the market. It becomes a pleasure having to tune the guitar! The Taylor Expression pickup system is installed. The saddle and nut are bone.
  As far as the sound, not much needs to be said - Taylors always sound great. When I think of a maple body, I expect to hear something a bit tight, brittle, with the treble shouting through the mix. Not so with what Taylor has been doing with their maple models lately. Their selection of the wood, and the manner in which the bracing has been adjusted yields a warmth that is fantastic while not sacrificing the openness and clarity you'd expect from maple. The sustain is long and pleasing.
  With the comfortable 1 3/4" neck width and some Elixir Light Nanoweb strings on this baby, you are set for a lifetime! Except for a little ding on the top lower bout, treble side, the guitar is in mint condition.
Feel welcomed to call us with any questions or a hands-on description. Of course, the Taylor brown hardshell case is included.
  Street price for this guitars was $5085. Grab this for a fraction of that price $3400.
