Smile PRIMO 1996 Taylor Custom K15c All Koa. EX+ DOWN TO $3750!

SPECTACULAR 1996 CUSTOM ALL KOA JUMBO

Incoming JK custom so this needs to go. A LOT OF GUITAR, AND READY TO RIP!

Was way more!!! Hahaha

Was $4250

Now $3750 or best reasonable offer. SHIPPED AGF


Specs:
1.75" Nut, 2,3/16" string spacing at the Taylor bone Saddle
25.5" string scale
17" Lower Bout, 12 1/8" Upper Bout, 9 7/8" at the curvy waist
3.75" deep at neck heel. 4.5" deep at butt.
Body is 20 7/8" long.
Action is about 5/64 at Big E, 4/64" at small e.
Minimal neck relief and the neck angle is perfect. Saddle is showing 10/64" above the bridge. So correct height to Taylor specs.

Back from Taylor Repair, (12/7/20). I had the barely perceptible seam finish separation filled and buffed. Now REALLY near invisible and almost impossible to feel. Pat Quinn also buffed up up a couple minor dings, although there are still minor signs of being played.

Monster 96 Taylor CUSTOM all Koa Jumbo in spectacular condition and just set up and dialed in by Pat Quinn. Senior repair tech at Taylor guitars in El Cajon !

I have sold a good number of these 94-99 Taylors here. Always after having them setup and dialed in by either Tim Luranc, or lately Pat Quinn, since Tim is now retired. These gents are the BEST at Taylor setups and repair.
Everyone who has bought one of mine has commented on the ease of playability and the Tone as well.

Reverb listing tells ALL ABOUT IT with lots of pics.

https://reverb.com/item/35854208-tay...o-cutaway-1996

Was $4725, and split shipping/fees.

Was $4990 net to me. Was Asking $5275.

My YouTube video 10/2/20: https://youtu.be/YTtMjdbdTlE



Always glad to talk guitar and answer any questions!

619-445-1189. 9-9 or so PDT. Land line so no texts

Salud!

Paul

Smile Saturday bump

Up from page four...

Here is something you do NOT see often! Not just the guitar...

Cindy is telling me I should KEEP this! Am I fortunate or what??? And Cindy can SING BEAUTIFULLY, too.

This is in the top three old Taylors I have ever played. And I have played HUNDREDS!
The TONE is otherworldly. It responds wonderfully to bare fingers, as well when whacked with a pick or my thumbpick and finger picks. Sounds and plays GREAT tuned down to D or even drop C.
And it is spectacularly beautiful.

Full disclosure here:
It does have a very well Repaired and cleated old top separation, which was not disclosed when I bought it. Sigh... but the seam is nice and tight and almost invisible. As shown in the Reverb pics.
Pat Quinn gave it a clean bill of health. This is all in the Reverb ad, but thought I should mention it here too!

The very similar (but NT neck KLSM) models from 2000 are going for considerably MORE $$$

Everyone have a fine Saturday!

Paul

Smile Back...

Thanks Alan! This sounds so sweet!!!

I've played hundreds and hundreds of old Taylors. It does NOT get better than this. Seriously, this is a LOT of prime Koa.

Ridiculous good setup! UNBELIEVABLE BEAUTIFUL ! Huge WARM BALANCED TONE, AND LOUD, TOO!

I have enjoyed this a LOT, but I am 5'10" with small hands. Love the neck carve, and TONE/Volume but the long scale and 14 fret geometry just don't work as well as they used to for me. Sigh...

Reasonable offers considered

Salud

Paul

Smile Happy New Years!

Bump this BOSS old goody!

This is from one of Cindy's friends and slightly edited for here:

New Year’s hottest club is...Staying Home. This place has EVERYTHING! Cheap drinks. Heavy pours. Your favorite spot on the couch. No bathroom lines. No cover for ladies (masks & bras not required). VIP fridge access.
Live performances by you!
Also, staring at your phone & MORE!

Salud AGF

Paul

Back in the day, I heard that R Taylor went to Hawaii for the specific purpose to select koa wood for these guitar’s.

Smile Bump

True Alan. And now Taylor owns a Koa plantation and is doing a lot of re-forestation in Hawaii I believe!

Thanks for the kind words Mike/Woody, and right back at ya, my friend!


This would make a sweet pair with the similar Koa 12 string that just went up FS here today.

Time for a bump anyway, and why not???

Salud

Paul
