Advert here

I know nothing about this guitar, but it looks interesting, and is for sale, about 60 miles from here.

There's also a 1946 NY Epiphone arch top, on the same site.

I can't advise on the price or the sound (obviously) but I own 2 guitars with adirondack sound boards and they are real keepers. It does take adirondack a longer time to open up (I've heard it's as much as 4 years depending on how much an instrument is played) so you might want to consider that when appraising it's volume and tonal qualities.
That said, the proof is in the playing.

The combination of slotted headstock and 14 frets-to-the-neck-joint is a bit odd. Usually, slot-heads are 12-fret models. Obviously a custom instrument, which actually lends credence to the seller's claim to have won the guitar. Fundraising entities who raffle guitars often commission one-of-a-kind instruments.

Of course, a one-of-a-kind instrument can be a hassle to resell if you fall out of love with it down the road. If I had the money to buy that guitar and had Taylor fever, I'd lean toward a production model instead. But if I played that guitar and it really knocked my socks off, I'd buy it anyway.

I did a little snooping around Taylor's website and found a couple more 14-fret slot-head steel-strings. (Click Here) As far as I can tell, the only production models that featured the slotted headstock were the Grand Concert size guitars in the now discontinued "Acoustic Koa" series. The guitars in that series were all non-cutaways without electronics. Not exactly features your average Taylor fan is looking for.

A pupil has a nice Taylor - however to me, so its my fault they are rather bright and tinny. I prefer the Martin D15 I have for depth and richness of sound. I would the play the devil out of it before making a decision myself

Back in, oh, 2000?, I bought a really good Santa Cruz 000. It had a slotted head and believe me changing strings was a real pain.

I also had a Taylor 514-C, which I bought in NYC in 1998. Played it for a couple of years then went back to the Martin HD-28 for, as Tony says, its depth. Sold the Taylor to Emily Slade, who loves it.

But I'm a Martin man so what do I know!

I was a Martin man, but I'm better now. (Since I got my Appollonios)

The sound that comes out of a Taylor depends on the size of the box. The little ones tend to lack bass, but the big ones, 810, will match any Martin I ever played.
