When this guitar arrived many months later (far past the Spring, in fact) we immediately knew that this guitar had been worth the wait. Our first impression, upon gazing at this treasure, was how incredible it looks. Taylor did a great job of highlighting the natural beauty of the wood.
Macassar Ebony Back
The ebony is strikingly rich in its coloring, alternating between reddish brown and dark chocolate brown stripes. The simple yet elegant inlays and binding of Koa and Ivoroid perfectly enhance it's beauty.
Engraved Koa Ovals w/Progressive Arrowhead-like Ivoroid Triangles
The Koa and Ivoroid theme is continued for the trim, binding and in the rosette. The gold Gotoh 510 tuners add the perfect finishing touch of class to this instrument.
