❌SOLD❌  Taylor T5 C2 Koa Slimline Electric, 2006

The Taylor T5 C2 Koa is now discontinued but was introduced in 2005 to meet the needs of touring musicians who had to pare back the number of instruments they carried.   Built to simulate the tones and responses of solidbody, semi-hollow and fully acoustic models, the T5 line succeeded in its aims while also looking great on any kind of stage. This Taylor T5 C2 Koa has a serial number dating it to October 10, 2005. It’s built with Sapele for the back and sides, with nicely figured Hawaiian Koa for the top. The neck is also Sapele, with a bound Ebony fingerboard sporting the ‘Spires’ inlay pattern.

❌SOLD❌ Jerry Jones Neptune 12 String Electric Red, 2008

❌SOLD❌  Jerry Jones Neptune 12 String Electric Red, 2008

The Jerry Jones Neptune 12 is now a fairly unusual guitar, based on vintage Danelectro designs, and was one of the best affordable electric 12’s available before Jones closed in 2011. The plant had run since 1981 and in April 2011, Jerry Jones retired and the entire contents of the plant were sold at auction. Danelectro instruments and amplifiers were built from 1946 to 1969, guitars under that name from 1954 and had an unusual construction scheme.

❌ SOLD❌  PRS SC 245 Solidbody, Trans Brown, 2008

Here we’re looking at a PRS SC 245 built during 2008 at the PRS shop in Stevensville, Maryland. It’s in very good condition, with only slight wear; the nickel plated metal parts are developing a natural patina. This example is built using a bookmatched, carved Flame Maple top on a contoured Mahogany back and a Mahogany neck bearing an unbound Indian Rosewood fingerboard with Bird inlays. The neck joint is nicely contoured for comfort.

❌SOLD❌ Collings OM2H Orchestra Model Sitka Top, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Collings OM2H Orchestra Model Sitka Top, 2008

The Collings OM2H Orchestra Model is a top quality take on the classic OM guitars that date back to the late 1920s, as the great migration of banjo players to guitar began. The OM is based on the 12-fret neck, 1928 Martin 000 body size, which was modified to allow the 14 fret neck that banjo players needed for higher position chording. The upper bouts were ‘flattened’ to accommodate this neck. The 14 fret neck was so successful that on steel string guitars, it completely displaced the 12-fret neck. It’s only in the last few years that builders have been offering 12 fret necks again.

❌SOLD❌ Taylor T5 C2 Ebony Top Thinline, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Taylor T5 C2 Ebony Top Thinline, 2008

The Taylor T5 C2 is now discontinued in favour of other T5 models, but is an excellent example of form meeting functional needs – its original purpose was to take the place of multiple instruments on a tour stage. Here we’re looking at a Taylor T5 C2 model with a strikingly figured Ebony top, built during 2008 at the Taylor plant in El Cajon, California. The finish itself is very clean and only very lightly marked. The hardware is gold plated, and the inlays are a mix of Abalone, acrylic and Mother of Pearl.
