Taylor PS-18 Brazilian Grand Orchestra 1st Edition Limited (2013)

Financing with Affirm


This pre-owned Taylor PS-18 was made in a very limited quantity and has the best of the best Brazilian from Bob Taylor's very own private stash.  Between Brazilian rosewood's sweeping tonal range and glorious overtones, European spruce blend of clear headroom and tonal warmth, and the Grand Orchestra's bold, dynamic voice, this guitar unleashes a stunning level of power and musical detail. Exquisite features include a beveled ebony armrest for playing comfort, ebony binding, a Brazilian rosewood backstrap, Adirondack spruce bracing, and elaborate, hand-engraved paua inlays. The guitar comes with a custom Taylor deluxe hardshell case with a First Edition case plate. On consignment.
