Default 1993 Taylor 912

Just played a 1993 Taylor 912 with Cindy inlays at my local guitar playhouse.

It just might have to come home with me. Oh my goodness what a fantastic guitar.

Any owners or anybody that can offer some insight to early 90's Taylors?

A Cindy 912 is one of the few Taylors on my wish list. I played one years ago and never really got over it. Lovely guitars!

Some day.......

90's is the golden era of taylors. Just right to open up. I've had the pleasure to own a brazilian 814 from 99. A sweet guitar.

I'm very lucky to have an early 90s K22C (in signature). It is a very sweet and expressive member of the family!

I have a 1993 910 that I bought new. It is one of the best guitars of any make or style I've ever played or heard. Been offered much more than I paid for it by several people, but it will go the grave with me.

Default 912

I have a 1995 612 and absolutely love the sound. The 90's Taylor's have a much fuller sound than the more modern ones, just my opinion.

I believe that Taylor's constant changes since the 90's, in an attempt to obtain a more 'vintage' tone...relief routing, CV bracing/adi bracing, tweaks to body shape, NT neck and scarf joint, etc, etc. have 'homogenized' their sound when compared to the 90's era.
Around 2035, I predict Taylor will introduce their 1996 'Authentic' Series

The only early 90's Taylors I've ever played were the two I've owned. First, a '94 410, which I traded in on a '91 510. Let's just say, I have no plans to ever sell that 510.

I used to have a 93' 912c... I guess its one of the best Taylors I have ever played... But honestly, for the money just get a used Goodall, Furch/Stanford/Stonebridge w/c are significantly better

i bought a 510 in 1990. i had it retrofitted with the es a few years back. agree, it won't ever be sold.

i like taylor in general but have to say i prefer the older vs the new versions....

I have a '94 812c and it sounds and plays great. This guitar is such a joy to play. One aesthetic detail I like is that the bridge pins are in a curved arrangement, not straight.
