This is a Presentation Series Taylor Jumbo from 1996 in near-mint condition. No expense was spared in the construction of this guitar which comes in premium Engelmann spruce and Brazilian rosewood. The Brazilian rosewood set shows great figuring with gradient of light tan and chocolate-brown hues. The Englemann spruce is also of top quality and has aged to a lovely gold hue. An abundance of abalone appointments is etched onto this guitar. The green heart abalone rosette is almost crystalline in appearance and the theme is extended in the form of generous balone purfling on the top, back and sides of the guitar. The fingerboard also features a intricate "Byzantine" fingerboard inlay.
This guitar carries a huge dynamic tone with a very full deep bass, sweet focused mid-range and clear bell-like treble. The guitar chimes beautifully across the entire tonal spectrum and showcases the best of a Jumbo body size guitar in terms of power and depth of sound. The consignee has kept the guitar in amazing condition, making this guitar quite a keeper.
