Used 2007 R. Taylor Style 1 Swiss Alpine Spruce Madagascar Rosewood

SKU 2007298
This is one beautiful sounding guitar with really big, wide, balanced tone. The tonewoods on it feature a Swiss Alpine Moon Spruce top, gorgeous Master Grade Madagascar Rosewood back and sides, and Adirondack Spruce bracing. The Tropical Mahogany neck features a slim carve and a 1 13/16" width nut for easy, roomy playing. It features an asymmetrical X bracing pattern and 65' geometry.

This guitar works equally well for any kind of pick playing and responds great for fingerstyle. It has great harmonics and a rich full bass. It kills in alternate tunings as well.

If you don’t recall the brand, R. Taylor was Bob Taylor’s personal small shop label and the few of these guitars that were built are entirely hand made by his most experienced luthiers using the most select materials available.

There are some light signs of use in the headstock and neck, but the body is shining and looks great after a professional and nearly invisible repair on the lower bout.   This guitar sounds really rich and full and plays like a dream. It is gig-ready with   a Taylor Stealth ES pick-up system installed and it’s original hard shell case.
