Description

Absolutely gorgeous. Here we’ve landed a 2016 Olson James Taylor Clone—upgraded with premium Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and amber-dark Cedar top. The initial run of the James Taylor signature model was so popular that Jim has built several Clones over the years, and we’re so excited to have managed to get this recent build in.

James Taylor plus James Olson equals pure joy. The James Taylor models sold out long ago, but Jim occasionally builds these clones which have all of the same specifications.
 
Velvet smooth from tuners to tail, with a voice to match. It’s no wonder James Taylor’s been playing Olsons all these years.
