Subject: Nanci Griffith Taylor Guitar - seen one?
From: GUEST,Texas Guest

Thought you all might be able to help here: Taylor came out with a
Nanci Griffith signature guitar a few years back, and I know this
because back then some lady at a festival approached me after a performance and opened her guitar case to show me her new instrument.
It was a Taylor - whatever model - painted a beautiful blue with
a replica of Nanci's signature inlayed high on the fretboard.

Well I just love Nanci Griffith and I figured I'd come across one or two as time went on, but - no luck. I have checked with a myriad of music stores and I've gone on line and come up with - zilch!
Has anyone out there seen one, or do you own one - and if you own one, is it any good? Just curious. Cheers.

I've seen Nanci Griffith playing her Taylor guitar and it sounded really nice, especially when the full band wasn't playing.

Tex. Another thing we have in common. The Red Wings, and I also am a big fan of hers. Don't know anything about her guitar though.

I love Nanci too. Never noticed what guitar she's played in concert, but I'm usually too far back in the crwowd to tell. But I love the sound of her guitar when she plays solo acoustic.

Hmmm a Taylor you say? This may be enough to change my Martin/Gibson (& an occasional Guild) bias. Will check it out next time I'm in my big guitar store, and let you know if I find out anything about that model, though I am sure one of the Mudcats will have the info before then. .

I'm not a big fan of Taylor guitars - I own a couple of Collings. But the one Taylor guitar that impressed me was a Jewel signature model. It was a really nice small guitar.

Sorry - That wasn't intended as a "my guitar can beat up your guitar" comment. Taylor makes many fine guitars. Some of my best friends play them.

"Taylor makes many fine guitars"? I thought Taylor had been taken over by Gibson but never mind - NG was o the Transatlantic Sessions last week and although she was playing a Taylor it looked to me more like Koa than blue paint.

Sorry, perhaps it was Fender.

Fender has the distribution rights in Europe for Taylor Guitars ... Taylor is still an independent company.

Nanci's signature guitar is a Taylor 512NG- I have one and it is a joy to play.

Taylor made 106 Nanci Griffith special edition guitars in 1996 called the NG 512 with a red burst & florentine cutaway. But a few years later she started playing a blue 612 live but always has her NG 512 along for a few songs. I don't know if Taylor actually released the blue 612 as a Nanci Griffith signature model though.
