Smile Taylor 98 W-14c near mint. Recent Factory FULL RENEW. NOW $2950!

Esteemed AGFers, may I offer:

Very Very clean 98 w-14c. No E
Sounds Fantastic and plays perfectly.
Original list price was $4250 in 1998!!! No longer available.
$3225 shipped, buyer pays any fees. PRICE DROP to $2950, shipped. Buyer pays any fees.
Walnut/Cedar G.A. (16" Lower Bout)
Cutaway, but No electronics. Ever.

Now up on Reverb in case you want to spend more . MORE PICS. Same TMI description...

https://reverb.com/item/18954192-tay...c-1998-natural

Only issues are cosmetic. One small ding above the big string, now dropfilled and buffed. A tiny bit of finish lift at neck heel from former neck set. Now glued and stabilized at Taylor. And a bit of finish lift on the back. Pics show these issues in harsh light! These were not uncommon at this time due to the ultra thin UV finish, which did help the tone and volume. Hard to spot these cosmetic booboos due to the major figure in the Walnut. But we want no surprises so please check all pics!

Major BLING. Beautiful Abalone galore.
Extremely light weight.
Pink Poodle case in outstanding condition! Looks new!!!
Just back from spa vacation at Taylor for COMPLETE RENEW PROCEDURE!
Now has Beautiful Jescar EVO Hard gold color frets, new neck set, and perfect set up by Taylor Repair Senior Tech, Pat Quinn.
Super clean stable original Grovers.
Played but super well taken care of.
Not getting the love my 12 frets get. And too Primo for me to gig...
The new ones do not compare, to my ears or hands.
This era Taylors compare well to Santa Cruz, Collings, Bourgeois, Goodall, and other smaller shops. WAY more human work involved than now...
This is a VERY GOOD ONE even for this era. This caused much commotion and favorable comment at Taylor Repair!
25.6" scale
1.75" Nut
2 3/16" string spacing at Saddle
Slim "electric" neck typical of the "Golden Era Taylors". Much like new "Slim Carve" but considerably less mass in the heel due to the pre NT construction.
Will be detuned to C, swaddled like a baby and beyond pro packed.
I ship USPS third Day Priority insured on my Heritage account.
Paul
619-445-1189 9-9 pacific time.
Thanks for looking. I am happy to answer any questions!

What a gorgeous Taylor!! And it is one of those GREAT Taylors from the late 90s. Folks, I have two of these 90's Taylors and they absolutely sound and play awesome. Some people believe that the old ones are better than the new ones...and yes I am in that camp. They have almost a "hybrid Martin tone", and yet with a little bit of that cool Taylor sizzle factor. I LOVE the tone of these.

This one is in tip top condition and if Paul had it gone completely through, you can trust that nothing was missed. So...you could say this is almost like driving this baby off the showroom floor and yes you're getting a guitar that has the age on the wood that makes it sound really special.

Paul is the real deal. Great guy to work with. And yes, when he ships he packs them to survive just about anything. Buy with confidence!

Smile Thanks Bradley

I hope the tour is a rousing success. So sorry I missed you here in Descanso, but I was pressed into service at a last minute gig myself.

Rattle my cage again when you get home. And

Have FUN

Paul

Smile Bump...

Really prefer a straight sale. But never say never to partial trades...

This is a very VERY NICE golden age Taylor!

Cheers

Paul

Smile PRICE DROP

Price drop to $2950 shipped. (Trade value $3250). Perhaps this will get someone off the fence...

I recently played my way through the Taylor Petting zoo at the El Cajon Campus.

To my ears this is at least as good as ANYTHING I played and I prefer the old neck.

Your mileage may vary.

This was $4250! 22 years ago....

If I did not have my three John Kinnaird Customs and a FOURTH on the way this would not be for sale.

Cheers

Paul
