Default 2 Taylor GS Brazilian/Adirondack AE guitars (2nd price drop on #1 & 3rd on #2)

I've moved to shorter scale and smaller bodied acoustics, so I'm selling a couple of great ones that don't get much play these days...a 2008 Taylor-GS-LTD-B cutaway and a full bodied 2007 Taylor Custom GS. For the player and/or collector, these are outstanding and special pieces to own. Not only because of the playability and sound of each for any style, but (as most of you know on this forum also because of the rarity of quality Brazilian Rosewood being used in current guitar making at this time. For those of you who don't know, as stated in guitarplayer.com..."Today, Brazilian Rosewood can only be used for guitars (or anything else really) if it was harvested prior to the CITES ban (1992), or harvested from trees that have fallen naturally - and is accompanied with a certificate of provenance in both cases." I called Taylor Guitars last week and it was confirmed that they no longer have Brazilian Rosewood as an option for any of their guitars as they have run out.

1) 2008 Taylor-GS-LTD-B: Cutaway, Brazilian body with Adirondack top and Taylor Expression System Pickup. This was said to be in excellent condition when Artisan Guitars checked it out for me last August. Made as a limited edition in 2008 with only 50 in the run. As seen in the closeup photo (where I had to use a flash to pick it up) there are a couple of finish scratches on the back bottom edge of the lower bout which were there when I purchased it and are pretty hard to see. Includes a Taylor "Alligator" brown hardshell, arched top case. $5,000 + 1/2 shipping CONUS through PayPal (which I'll pay the fee). For "local" cash pickup to Knoxville, Tn...I can meet you within 100 miles. I'm in Nashville and Atlanta at times, so we could possibly meet there as well.
((PRICE DROP TO $4,900 + 1/2 shipping))...((2nd price drop to $4,700 + 1/2 shipping CONUS))

2) 2007 Taylor Custom GS: Full body, Brazilian body with Adirondack top and Taylor Expression System. This one was also said to be in excellent condition when Artisan Guitars checked it out last August. A little over two years ago I was told by Taylor Guitars that if I ordered one with these specs, this particular Custom Build would cost around $14,000 for them to make. Includes a Taylor "Alligator" brown, arched top, hard shell case. $5,000 + 1/2 shipping CONUS through PayPal (which I'll pay the fee). For "local" cash pickup to Knoxville' Tn...I can meet you within 100 miles. I'm in Nashville and Atlanta at times, so we could possibly meet there as well.
((PRICE DROP TO $4,750)) ... ((2nd PRICE DROP TO $4,500 + 1/2 shipping CONUS))...((3rd PRICE DROP TO $4,250 + 1/2 shipping CONUS))

Smile Yowza!!!

Mighty nice Taylors.

That Brazilian doesn't grow on trees... oh, wait, yes it does. You just can't cut em.

BTW, those alligator cases are really nice, too!

Best on these. I can understand moving to more comfort!!!

Thank you Paul. Yeah, these are something else. I even put D'Addario NB Lights on each and was still blown away by the response with fingerstyle blues and strumming. Just need to let them both go to the right people who will play them often as they should be.
