Taylor GAce-FLTD 2012 Fall Ltd Edition w/ Quilted Sapele, Custom Inlays & Taylor Deluxe Case
Availability: In Stock
Condition: Seller Refurbished
The Taylor GAce-FLTD was a Limited Edition release from Taylor's Fall 2012 LTD Edition series. To give this Taylor a unique personality, it features exotic Quilted Sapele as its back and sides...one of the most visually stunning woods available. This tonewood has a bit more flex, which translates into greater power and warmth on the low end. The premium AA European spruce top is the perfect complement, blending elements of Adirondack spruce’s robust output with a hint of cedar’s warmth. Quilted sapele and ivoroid appointments, including a diamond “Solitaire” inlays, add elegant sophistication to the guitar.
You don't see guitars like this one every day. As a Taylor Fall 2012 LTD Edition Series it's highly collectible and perfect if you're searching for a rare treasure. What you're looking at is a 5-year old Taylor guitar that is in unplayed condition. You're probably asking, "How can this be?"
This specific guitar is available because there is just a hint of yellowing in the clear coat. Taylor uses a UV curing process with their finish and sometimes it adds a tiny bit of yellowing to the clear coat. On this example, it mostly at the edges, but will almost certainly diminish with time as the finish matures. Being a Limited Edition model, Taylor put this guitar aside and did not sell it during this model's release period. It languished in a warehouse for nearly five years and now they decided that the time has come for it to be sold. Original list on this model was $4298.00, but we got a deal on it, so we're going to pass it along. Since it has the cosmetic blemish, and is deeply discounted, Taylor required our supplier to mark it as "Used" and assign it a different serial number.
The Taylor Expression System electronics are perfect for realistic plugged-in tone. The onboard Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before, so it faithfully reproduces your guitar's native tone. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve, and the system is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
