Default '13 Taylor 524 First Edition - All Hog - $1795.00 - Price Drop thru 7/5

I thought that this 2013 Taylor 524 First Edition was going to be my forever guitar, but since re-purchasing this amazing Taylor, it's pretty much stayed in its case. You'd never guess that this guitar is nine years old, but judging by the warm dulcet tone, you'd probably never guess that it's a Taylor in a blind test. It includes the OHSC First Edition case, strap and case candy. ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES - Full price sale includes CONUS shipping. NOTE: This guitar did not come from the factory with a pickup, but a previous owner installed one. Another previous owner had the pickup removed, and had the enlarged hole for the endpin fitted with a chrome (although the flash makes it look black) strap button that fills the hole.

The video shows John from Shoreline playing this exact guitar.

Original Taylor tuning machines have been replaced with plain GOTOH tuners and black buttons shown in the first and third pictures. Chrome tuning buttons, however, will be included in sale.

FRANKFURT – April 11, 2013 – Celebrating the rich musical heritage of mahogany, Taylor Guitars is pleased to expand its popular mahogany 500 Series with several new all-mahogany models. Offered in all five Taylor body shapes, the models are making their debut as part of a special First Edition offering at the Musikmesse trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.

Mahogany has been prized by instrument makers for decades for its beauty and tonal strength, offering players a meaty midrange character with a strong emphasis on the fundamental frequencies, especially with the inclusion of a mahogany top. “It’s a strong, direct sound,” says Taylor master builder Andy Powers. “Mahogany acts as a natural compressor, so once a note has been played and the frequency set in motion, you hear the pure note without complex overtones.” *With its dry, crisp projection, mahogany lends itself to a variety of playing applications. “It works well in a live setting, amplified, on a recorded track with other guitar parts,” Andy elaborates. “Musically, mahogany offers a lot of versatility. Whether it’s someone who is playing with other musicians or a solo fingerstyle player, it will amplify well and make an amazing stage guitar.”

The new all-mahogany guitars will be released in a limited run of First Edition models in each of Taylor’s body shapes: the Dreadnought (520), Grand Concert (522), Grand Concert 12-Fret (522-TF), Grand Auditorium (524), Grand Symphony (526) and Grand Orchestra (528). Each guitar features special appointments, including ivoroid binding, a black pickguard, and a new “Century” inlay, which incorporates a retro-inspired progressive fretboard pattern and headstock detail.

These all-mahogany Taylors are really something special. I'd jump all over this except that I've got something similar already.
