The Indian Rosewood Back & Sides is just stunning, with a beautiful grain. It gives the guitar a depth of tone that has to be heard to be believed. The balance of Spruce and Rosewood gives the guitar a even balanced tone with a clear attack.
This guitar was hand picked by the previous owner from a special selection of guitars at a Taylor Roadshow. It is finished in a very rare Sunburst, with a UV cured lacquer. Taylors UV cured finish offers a balance of hardness and protection against checking, but it is also very thin allowing the wood to breathe.
