R. TAYLOR GC ENGELMANN SPRUCE MAPLE (SOLD)
R. Taylor guitars were built by the most experienced luthiers at Taylor guitars when they were first released. Every R. Taylor guitar is voiced individually and built with many structural improvements such as solid kerfling to enhance tonal vibration. Each guitar comes with hand-select premium wood and the finest green abalone appointments. Due to the attention to detail, they take about 3 times longer to build than a standard line guitar. They were eventually placed by Taylor’s built-to-order program.
This guitar is a grand concert built with a silky Engelmann spruce and a gorgeous trans-amber flame maple. The Engelmann spruce top provides for a bell-like chime with plenty of overtones while the maple back and sides shine through tonally with clarity and note to note articulation.
This consigned guitar has been kept in amazing condition and looks as good as new. It comes with the bonus of a premium Ameritage hardcase and will certainly delight any guitarist looking for an intimate guitar with a sweet bell-like tone.
