❌SOLD❌ Taylor LKSM Leo Kottke Signature Model 12 String Natural, 2000

The Taylor LKSM – the Leo Kottke Signature Model – is now discontinued but is one of the best choices for fast, articulated 12-string guitar styles. Based on a Jumbo body with an Venetian cutaway, the Taylor LKSM pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Tropical Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony, with Indian Rosewood for the head plate and body binding.  The tuners here are gold-plated Grover mini Rot0-Matics, though the specs call for Taylor branded tuners.    As stock, this is a fully acoustic model with no electronics.
