This pre-owned Taylor grand concert was custom built with a gorgeous Sinker Redwood top which can easily be deemed mastergrade and a set of highly figured Brazilian rosewood with gorgeous sap lines. The guitar is tastefully decorated with premium abalone appointments and matched with a slotted headstock for a visually stunning guitar.
Sinker redwood soundboards are sliced from huge old-growth redwood logs reclaimed from the depths of Northern California rivers, where they’ve lain in many cases for more than a century. The age and size of these trees translates into a tight grain with nice cross-grain stiffness, resulting in fairly bold tonal responses. On maturity, sinker redwood has the warmth and overtones of cedar plus the brightness and headroom of a good piece of spruce. It pairs very well with Brazilian rosewood which has a wide dynamic range and chime-like ring that sustains forever.
This pre-owned grand concert was custom built in 2007 and has been kept in excellent condition with slight finish wear on the neck joint and peghead. This is certainly one of the most visually pleasing Taylor guitars we have had with a great Brazilian rosewood tone to match.
