The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Taylor Custom TF Grand Concert Adirondack and Indian Rosewood, 2014

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Here is a very nice Taylor Custom TF from July 2014, with the TF representing a Twelve Fret Neck. This was an early iteration of this model, including a 12-fret neck, Grand Concert body, Adirondack Spruce top and Indian Rosewood sides and back with an Ebony back wedge.

For this Taylor Custom TF, a Grand Concert body with a rounded Venetian cutaway was specified with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, and Adirondack Spruce for the top and braces. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Crelicam Ebony used for the fingerboard, bridge, and back insert.  At the head, excellent, gold-coloured Gotoh 510 tuners are installed,  and the Taylor Expression System pickup and preamp set is factory standard. The rosette is an Abalone ring.

This fine guitar is in very good, clean shape with little wear of any kind.  The Grand Concert body is compact and very comfortable while providing a full, well-balanced and well-articulated tone.

This Taylor Custom TF is sold with its original Taylor branded hard shell case.

Crelicam Ebony comes from the Crelicam mill in Cameroon, and since 2011 has been jointly owned by Taylor and Madinter Trade, S.L.. This has dramatically improved the sustainability of the forestry practices in the area, and improved conditions for the local workers.

Adirondack Spruce is very strong and was the most common wood for guitar tops until WW2 aircraft production requirements led to over-harvesting. It has only started appearing in higher-end instruments in the last few years, as stocks recover. While it has a somewhat wider grain than Sitka or European Spruce, it is very strong and tonally holds up better when played heavily for volume – for example in a Bluegrass context.
