Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass Imbuia, 2000 ❌SOLD❌

Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass Imbuia, 2000 ❌SOLD❌

Here we have a Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass, designed by Steve Klein and Bob Taylor with a single cutaway, Manzer Wedge style Imbuia body. The Wedge reduces the body depth on the bass side from six inches to 4.375 inches, and this has two primary effects. First, it’s easier and less fatiguing for the player’s arm. Second, the wedge has the effect of increasing the sonic output towards the player.  Linda Manzer  introduced the wedge feature on the 1984, 42-string ‘Pikasso’  guitar for Pat Metheney, and subsequently described it in a 1989 presentation to the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans.

❌SOLD❌ Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Here’s an unusual guitar from the Custom Shop – a Martin 0014F cutaway guitar with ‘Toasted Burst’ top finish, built during 2015 in very gently used condition.  This lovely venetian-cutaway model has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany sides, back and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 00-14F is a recent and custom-run model, and does not at present appear in the Martin catalog or website.  This example is in overall quite good condition with very little wear.  The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish is showing signs of naturally sinking, and is very clean with only the lightest scuffing.

SOLD Boucher SG51 OM Hybrid Indian Rosewood Sunburst

The Boucher SG51 OM Hybrid melds simple yet elegant visuals with an inspiring rich balanced tone. Each AAAA Adirondack red spruce top on the Boucher SG51 OM Hybrid is handpicked by Robin Boucher for looks and tone. Red spruce has a high ceiling for tone production which means you can drive a lot of energy with a flat pick or your fingers to produce lots of volume and tone.
