Default Taylor 855 12-String. 1992 Santee

Original owner sale of a 1992 Taylor 855. I am downsizing my collection and am playing mostly F/S these days so I am hoping to place this wonderful 12 string Taylor in someone's appreciative hands. I keep my guitars in a humidified room and in cases. This is a 25 yr old museum quality Taylor. All original, no excuses. Prefect set up and playing condition. Low action like the Taylor 12s made the company's reputation for.
Cleaner than most guitars hanging on a dealer wall. Original brown/pink Taylor wood case supplied in the early 90s. Gold Schaller premium tuners that Taylor supplied back in the day. Made in Santee factory before El Cajon. Sticker card shows the El Cajon address but label is Santee. Not much else to say. If you want an original case clean Taylor 855, here she is. $SOLD

There was a thread started a few days ago by a fellow looking for this exact guitar, in this price range. Do a quick search and PM him.

Great looking Taylor 12-string. Just curious, what is that mark showing on the side shot just below the waist???

Any marks or blems are camera flash spots/reflections. Guitar is perfect. 100%

Gorgeous 12 string~~ Wish I had the ducketts to take this off your hands. Taylor makes great 12 strings, and this early example probably rings out for days..........

Good luck with your sale!!

Wink A bump for this fine 12

I have the 5 series mahog version of this and it plays as easy as most six strings. This one has to sound FULL and it is pretty being the 8 series Taylor 12. Original owner! This should be relatively quick.
