Cocobolo Taylors are extremely hard to come by these days. I have a standing order with Taylor to send me any Cocobolo sets or already-built guitars they have, so when I heard this custom was in the works, I knew I had to put my name on it. I don't really feel comfortable calling any Taylor a Frankenstein guitar, but that's what this custom is: It features an old-school Presentation body (standard CV bracing and Cocobolo back and sides) with an old-school 900 neck (yes, that's a Cindy inlay you see).
With my favorite tonewood in the world, plus premium Sitka for the top, as well as the now-standard arm bevel and some nice trim, this guitar is drool-worthy, for sure. Oh, and it sounds fantastic, in case you were wondering. Jump on this one fast.
