The R.Taylor guitars were the luxury handmade division of Taylor and are not even built anymore. The basic model Style 1 was available with many extra options and this Style 1 has some of them. First of all, a very rare Alpine Swiss Moonspruce top, then cocobolo sides and back, an ebony fretboard, Asymetrical X-Brace and a pickup system that was not officially available from Taylor and was made especially for this guitar. Works great for fingerpicking and strumming. Beautiful silky highs, not too bassy and with a great frequency spectrum. Reacts to even the smallest differences in touch and is very dynamic. Taylor at it's Best and not to be found anymore. The guitar is in top condition!
