Bob Taylor Usa 550-12 12 Handmade Acoustic Canon



Hand-signed by little-known West-coast acoustic guitar builder Bob
Taylor. Small-batch dreadnaught heaven. And dreadnaught is the best body type
for 12 strings, I’ve found. 

I have owned and
played many acoustics, from Santa Cruz to Taylors, Martins to Gibsons, and even a Mossman,
and the rest, and I assure you this Taylor KiLLS! As you might imagine, after
almost 25 years of breathing music, its woods are very open and resonant. Much
better quality woods than Taylor uses now. This 12-string was built before they
began to mass-produce guitars. You can always take off the octave strings and
play it as a 6-string canon – I’ve done that and it truly dominates the circle,
as it does with all 12 on. No cracks or breaks or repairs, and no equal.

You can't pay to make wood age like this. Only time can transform guitar woods. This one is ready.


Serial Number 4208.



Excellent/Solid Mahogany back and
sides/Solid spruce top/ High-gloss finish


Straight and true, super comfortable, not
too wide, with excellent string spacing


Choice rosewood


Excellent – very little wear




Excellent/stock Grover tuners (they work


Super clean near-new Martin plush hardshell,
with green lining and plastic still on the Martin badge!



There’s an inch-and-a-half line parallel to the bridge,
and light but normal play wear – pick lines and a couple dings on the top (hard
to photograph), but nothing you can notice from three feet away. Pickguard has
some wear. And the back and sides are near perfect. Back and sides are superb choice
older Mahogany – not “sapele” or some other less-than tonewood, like "bubinga"!


Famous rich full Taylor sound and easy to play.
