Dead Mint Condition
As far as I'm concerned there are only 3 brands of 12 strings: Taylor, Breedlove and Guild. And this Taylor is one of the killingest sounding 12's of all. First of all it's a jumbo which gives you a huge full sound because of the extra large 17" body. Secondly, it's a Koa body which gives a nice bright tone. So put all three things together (Taylor, jumbo, Koa) and you have a 12 string that covers all the bases - big and fat tone with that trebly jangle you want to hear from a 12. And the visuals are stunning! Beautiful 5A solid Koa that is just about impossible to get in 2017. In 2001 Koa was far more plentiful than it is today and, thusly, far less expensive. Plus it has a 41 style pearl top! The playability is perfect which is a bit unusual for a 16 year old 12 string. This is a one owner guitar who kept it tuned down a step when it wasn't being used which is what helped to keep the action low and comfortable. If you ever wanted a world class 12 string this is your chance.
