Taylor SolidBody Custom Walnut (SBC-1), (front-1) (front-2), (back), (headstock), (features), (case). For those of you who haven't had the joy of playing one of Taylor's fine line of solidbody guitars you might want to consider this one. Taylor has never been guilty of chasing all the latest trends and they waited around 30 years before building their first solidbody models. The line consists of 3 basic models, the Classic, the Standard, and this top of the line Custom with a beautifully figured and bookmatched walnut top, diamond pattern inlays, and ivoroid binding. Features include with beveled single-cutaway sapele body with contoured back; sapele neck with ebony fretboard 15" fretboard radius; 22 frets; Taylor-designed hardtail aluminum bridge; single bolt "T-lock" neck joint Taylor standard tuners; 24.875" scale; 1.6875" nut; Progressive Diamond Pattern inlays; neck and body purfling; gloss finish on body, neck, and headstock. Electronics consist of pair of Taylor "Style I" humbuckers with a master volume and a special master tone that acts like a traditional control for first two-thirds while the last third peaks the mids. 5-way switching consists of: 1-Full neck pickup; 2-Inside coils of the neck and bridge in parallel (skinny neck tones); 3-Full neck pickup with the inside coil of the bridge pickup; 4-Inside coil of each pickup in series (fuller and fatter than position 2); 5-Full bridge pickup. This model retails for $3098, selling discounted for $2299. This one appears to have seen little to no playing time and looks like a new floor model - but for $1000 less than new. $1299(HOLD-Rob C 1/15) takes it. Includes Taylor case that hugs the body on all sides.
