James Taylor, that's a pretty iconic name. I had a girlfriend that was in love with him around 1970. Needless to say, I wasn't too fond of the boy. The girlfriend is now my wife. She still likes him, and I have since grown to like him myself. What can I say, I was a jealous fool. Here we have an Olson James Taylor made in 2002. This guitar is an extremely rare and extremely fine instrument. It's hard to know where to begin. First of all, it's the 4th built out a limited edition of 80. Olson has sold them all, there won't be anymore. It is signed by James Taylor and the builder, James Olson. This is the pinnacle of a great builder's art. It sounds so good, plays so flawlessly, and is an absolute gem on an instrument. I see this guitar as a prime collectible: one that can only appreciate in value with the passage of time. In the meantime, you get to enjoy and play one of the finest acoustic guitars on the planet. This is a used instrument, showing very light wear. Overall, the condition is excellent. The frets are perfect, and it plays like a dream. Folks, this is one fine guitar.
