Description

Bob Taylor started his career as a solo guitar builder much like the many great builders of today. Anyone who's played one of those early Taylors knows how different they are from the Taylor Factory guitars, more open, alive and complex in tone. R. Taylor Guitars was setup to offer a smaller shop approach to building, offering custom guitars such as this beautiful Sinker Redwood and Cocobolo Rosewood Style 1.

The subtle sunburst over the natural colors in the Sinker Redwood makes this R. Taylor guitar stand out. Sinker Redwood comes from a famous log found near Mendicino California that spent it's lifetime submerged. This Redwood is stiffer than most and here with it's modified Adirondack bracing it produces a wonderful rich tone, that is also powerful. Paired here with dramatic Cocobolo Rosewood for a unique elegance and tone.

This is a striking guitar. It stands out when you walk in the room. I really like Sinker Redwood and it looks amazing under this sunburst. Sinker is from a particular log and has a great voice and more headroom than some other Redwood. This guitar is big and strong but has more character and richness due to the top. Fit and finish are impeccable as we expect from R. Taylor Guitars.
 
This is a beautiful guitar with a big voice that is great for strumming or fingerpicking.
