❌SOLD❌  Taylor 556ce 12 String Guitar, 2014

The Taylor 556ce 12 string guitar gives a good illustration of how Taylor became one of the prominent builders of 12-strings. They sound great and play very well, but also Taylor’s unique neck joint makes the inevitable neck reset a simple matter of maintenance. Using the same type of comfortable neck profiles as their six-string guitars, but naturally a bit wider, the Taylor 556ce 12 is a breeze to play

❌SOLD❌ Volkert Classical Cutaway Crossover Guitar, 1994

Here we have a custom order Volkert classical, cutaway and crossover guitar, signed and dated to 1994 at the Volkert shop in Lauf an der Pegnitz. This guitar was designed for the player’s needs, which included playing Gypsy Jazz and Flamenco styles. This interesting, well built guitar has a Florentine cutaway and, very unusually for a classical, a 14-fret neck!  Because of the player’s needs, full Golpeador or Tap Plates were installed to protect the top.

❌SOLD❌ Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith ‘Lawsuit Era’ Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

❌SOLD❌  Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith 'Lawsuit Era' Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

Here we have an Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith style, full body cutaway archtop, built in Japan likely during 1975. The model was built until 1977. Typical of the early 1975 period, it has no serial number – these started appearing on the back of the headstock late 1975. It is largely original, though it has a slight modification – the output jack was a mini-plug mounted on the pickguard, and this was removed and a standard 1/4 inch jack installed to the lower treble side.

❌SOLD❌ Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

❌SOLD❌  Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

Here we are looking at a Linda Manzer cutaway steel string acoustic built during 1980 in Toronto. It features a concert body using Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard. The nut and saddle are bone. Schaller tuning machines with ebony buttons are installed at the head, and a K&K pickup set has been installed to an endpin jack. This example features Abalone for the rosette and position markers – a mix of dots and a leaflet with stem. The top has a small thin clear plastic tap plate, an excellent idea that protects the top without hiding it.

Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String

Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String

The Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String is a very good sounding guitar and demonstrates the added projection and sustain from the new V-Class bracing pattern.  Starting from the Grand Concert design, a soft Venetian cutaway is added, and the body is built using a Sitka Spruce top paired with traditional Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.  The 12-fret neck is Mahogany, with Ebony used for the headplate, bridge,  and bound fingerboard.
