Default Taylor Swift Signature Series???

So how much longer until that sparkle guitar is given an LTD sticker???

Also, does anyone know the woods on that axe. It is a GS size for sure, but thats all I really know so far.

I think it's a black maple GS, with some aftermarket additions.

I asked a rep at Taylor andI was told it was a GS rosewood back and sides/ spruce top. Her and her mom put the rhinestones on. She has an ES system.

The new wood and steel says it's a GS8. I think it mentions it in one of the photo captions where they show that guitar.

Who cares what kind of wood it is. She obviously doesn't. I think it is criminal that an "artist" or should I say poser would consider doing that to any kind of instrument. She should stick to "bedazling" jeans then do us all a favor an get out of the music business.

Are you planning on keeping any of them? Is there one you love so much you can't imagine selling?
