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. The R. Taylor shop was setup to be a smaller shop approach to building, offering custom guitars. 5 Luthiers work in the shop and build instruments like this Cocobolo and Adirondack Style 1. This is a modified Dreadnought shape that can handle strumming, flatpicking and fingerstyle and do it all well. The tonewoods are beautiful and so is the resulting voice. This Style 1 R. Taylor guitar is in perfect, like-new condition.

It's great to see Bob Taylor recognizes that a smaller shop with lower production can make a better guitar. We see evidence of that everyday, a small builder can select the best woods and spend much more time on each instrument. This R. Taylor Style 1 starts with beautiful Cocobolo Rosewood and gorgeous Adirondack Red Spruce. This combination means one thing, power and plenty of it. This guitar sounds like a Dread when you strum it but is more balanced when played fingerstyle. This is a great all-rounder.
 
This guitar looks and plays like some of the finest hand built guitars. The fretboard is comfortable and the strings are perfectly spaced.
