Default Taylor 710 Brazilian Rosewood guitar

Absolutely beautiful Taylor 710 Brazilian Rosewood guitar, #970328120, with original hardshell case. $2,400. Sounds like heaven. Just not getting played; gotta get it into the hands of someone who will. Gold Grover tuners and strap button; no on-board pickup system. Pretty close to flawless...

I'm in the Seattle area and sorry, not shipping this baby anywhere -- too paranoid about shipping problems and payment hassles, FYI. But maybe someone in the area is interested! Give me a yell if you'd like more info.

(Sorry about the image sizes!) I'll update with better images when I can.

Beauty. If I were in your neck of the woods, this would be an instant sale for you.

Good Luck!

Yeah, it kills me to part with it, it's such a nice guitar. But my current ones don't get played enough as is, and I wouldn't be gigging with this one either. It was my brother's for years, purchased new, and he never played it, and he needed some money a year or two ago so I took it off his hands. It needs a better home though!

Cedar top?

You are really limiting yourself if it is a "pick up" only situation. Especially when you can get paid via PayPal (secure) and ask the buyer to pay for full insurance on freight.

I think it's cedar, yes but not sure. I'll see if I can nail that down. Good point on the selling locally, but I'm just too paranoid -- although if too much time goes by, I suppose I'll have to consider doing that. Thanks for the tip...

Was under the impression that the 710s of those years were Englemann spruce. Taylor can confirm, but that's what I recall.

You may well be right -- I'm just guessing! Not sure how I'd determine that aside from emailing Taylor directly; I'll give that a try. Thank you!

As it turns out, you have to have posted at least thirty times to put something up for sale there! Oh well...

Update here -- Just spoke to Chris at Taylor about this guitar -- very helpful. This is a solid Brazilian Rosewood back & sides Model 710 with an Engleman Spruce top. It listed at $4,148 at the time it was new in 1997, and was part of a group of annual year-end special-run of guitars only sold to top dealers. I'll be posting some more requested specs on it tonight -- nut and bridge width; bout measurements, etc. (although I know it's a 1-3/4 nut).
