Default 2006 R. Taylor Style 1 Adirondack / Mahogany ($1,975 Net)

Well... I have my eye on a custom GC, and my wife said I better not come home with another guitar without selling one first

I purchased the guitar from kendallhadden last year (link below), and have really enjoyed my time with it. It's been interesting comparing it to my Sitka/EIR R.T., as the Adirondack top is very responsive and the Mahogany body produces great volume.

Kendall passed this along to me at a great price due to some imperfections from a finish repair. I'll add some pictures this evening, as I only have the original listings photos saved to my computer.

Offering it for the same price I paid to hopefully pass it on to another AGF'er.

$1,975.00 net to me after shipping/paypal fees


Thanks - Phil

Found a couple pictures in an old email of the finish repair, and the mahogany back. The only thing not pictured is the strap button that was installed.

Thanks - Phil

Smile KILLER DEAL ALERT

IMHO (not) these RTs are the sonic and playability equal of any Taylor.

Who did the finish repair work?

Got another with a 12 fret cut? And a slim carve??? Hahahahaha

Best on this awesome deal

I purchased it from Gryphon, and they didn't know.......I worked on it a bit after I got it and it became much less obvious. Taylor told me they would probably do a "fade" burst kind of thing to make it go away because they wouldn't be able to match the stain exactly.

Here's the original listing:

Great looking woods on this! Try as I might, I can't see the area with the finish issue. Where exactly is it, (or has the repair made it a thing of the past)? I'd like to second joshua89's ask about a sound clip? GLWTS!

Interesting. Thanks for the history on it. I've learned more about this guitar in the last 24 hours than in the last year

Thanks all for the replies - please see the additional pictures taken last evening.

Areas circled in orange reflect where the finish has lifted

Area circled in blue reflects where the finished was "repaired". To answer the previous question, no - the repair did not make it a thing of the past. I'm happy to take a short video of the finish issues and email to any interested party. Just shoot me an email.

Thanks - Phil
