Thanks, Rambo. My only dilemma now is whether I'm comfortable that these guitars have been hanging on the wall for four years. The do show some signs of dryness. I know they're the old neck design, but the necks on both guitars seem to dip at the 14th fret. A little fret end protrusion, also.

I called Taylor and asked if the could be sent to the factory for a little restoring to the original specs, humidification, etc., and I was told they could; either before I bought it or after, but I would have to take that up with the dealer. I bought another Taylor from this dealer, but don't have tremendous confidence in their technical expertise.

Anybody have any similar experiences when purchasing older Taylors from a dealer?
