Description

A chance to own a particularly desirable and collectable Olson! This 2013 James Taylor Signature Series 1 model is one of only 80 such instruments built by Jim, based on Taylor's personal Olson with dove inlays, Abalone trime and rosette, and here featuring a tight-grained Indian Rosewood body plus Cedar top. Very well cared for, this guitar is very minty and plays like butter. The voice has a great mix of sweetness, power, and definition across the registers. The kind of guitar that makes even wrong notes sound good.

What a treat to have a rare and original James Taylor Signature model from the initial run of these guitars. One of 80 made, and this one is in excellent shape as a playable collectable.
 
Great string energy. Individual notes are clean, clear, and well balanced for both solo lines and chords. Added treble overtones and a touch of chocolatey riches in the mids, and it's just about perfect.
