Plays smooth and low. This Taylor has huge sounding deep resonance with wonderful articulation perfect for supporting chords and melodies or taking the reigns on the solo stage.
Body Material: Rosewood, Spruce
Body Details: 2-piece rosewood back with solid rosewood sides and a solid 2-piece spruce top. Cosmetically it is in very good shape with some light finish scratching and swirling as well as some small dents across the face of the guitar with most of the dents near the edge of the sound board near where it meets the abalone purfling. The sound hole has a gorgeous abalone rosette to accent the naturally aging spruce top. The back and sides are in equal condition with less denting; however, the back does have some light buckle rash. The sides have light finish wear along where the right arm comes across the body, the back of the cutaway, along the edge, has some light finish wear as well. There was a slight bow in the top that our tech stabilized with a Bridge Doctor.
