Subject: For Sale - two GOOOD Taylors
From: Richard Bridge
Date: 04 Feb 05 - 08:16 PM

A friend is trying to sell his two pristine Taylors - a 512CE and a 315CE - both well set up for the driving fingerstyle player by a very very good local guitar tech. Both as new and possibly better in that they are starting to have a little age on the sound, and have been properly set up by a man who knows how to cure the usual Taylor fret rattle without creating an action that is too high. Looking for about two thirds of RRP for both. Those with serious interest, PM me.

Well, to be honest, the purpose of the sale is to get a Gibson...

But, as Taylors go (and some people do like them) these are pretty good, and very pristine.

Well, top of the list at the moment is the re-issue 1936 Advanced Jumbo, but some of the J200s might also do. All with 25 1/2 scale length

Some folks like Taylors - some don't.

Some folks don't like Gibsons - some do.

Seems a shame to wish it on the forum, but is Martian Gibbon about?

Richard,

Your friend might be interested to know that there is an Advanced Jumbo limited edition Brazilian rosewood at Sound Control in Glasgow, lovely guitar and very well priced for a brazilian r/w guitar.

Taylors, Gibsons, Martins, Fyldes, what the heck, I like them all.

But not coming up on their website. When I've sold the Taylors, I'll phone, but I have noticed the Advanced Jumbos seem to be walking off the shelves here in the UK at the moment - even at UK prices.

Ah, Richard Bridge.

Either Gibson you mentioned is worthy of two or more of those Taylor guitars that have about as much soul as a white man eating a mayonaise sandwich on white bread.

The J-200 or AJ will thrill you to know in in a traditional Gibson sunburst finish.

They are as good as it gets with the Gibson line.

Richard,

The Sound Control website never seems to reflect the actual stock in stores around the country. I suspect that this site is geared more towards the popular box shifter approach to music sales.

The guy who looks after the acoustic section in Glasgow is called Sandy Cairns, an knowledgeable and excellent chap to deal with. There are usually quite a few Gibsons, Martins ( including a lovely D45V ), and other stuff ( including a huge selection of Taylors ).

I don't care for the smaller Taylors but I'll put my 810 up against any Martin or Gibson you care to drag out.
When I bought the Taylor I had a Martin HD 28 and a Gibson J-45 (an old one) but the Taylor is so superior that I sold the Martin and gave the Gibson to a friend.
It takes more than a famous name to impress me.

Bess Hawes told me that Woody always had Gibsons because you could leave them in the rain and bounce them off the subway concrete and they wouldn't break.....and they sounded the same. Yessir, that's 'soul' for ya.

Well, first, I did PM Amos. I'm in south east England and looking for about two thirds of UK RRP on the Taylors. PM me if you are serious. They will probably go on ebay this weekend, and I notice the prices there on Taylors seem to be very firm.

My friend is the player in question (I have a Martin OM1, a Mugen THE 78, two very different Hagstrom J-45s, a Hagstrom BJ12E, and the camping guitar (a Morris) and am sorted for the time being). He simply does not feel "inspired" by the Taylors and has felt "inspired" by certain Gibsons in the past.

I'd say that Gibsons do have a very distinct personality, and I tend to like the J-50s, although I one played a Gospel I liked. The J-200s seem to me to differ a lot from each other. The common factor for those being aimed at is the long scale length which I think adds tuning stability and an almost piano-like quality to the notes. Funny that I hate pianos on folk (Early Jerry Lee Lewis and early Little Richard are OK on piano though) but like that guitar sound.

To me the Taylor "family noise" seems sort of to twang and jangle. Of these two the 512 has that characteristic Taylor sound (rounded a bit since it is no longer new), and the 315 seems less shimmery and a bit more woody so I like it more - and I like the big bottom end on it.

Anyway Martin, it's nice not to be shouting at each other (for a change).

Never judge a Taylor until you have played a top of the line model.

Would you judge all Martins by the sound of a OOO18?

It's a good thing all guitars are different or there would be no GAS, and GAS sustains me.

An aside...During a visit to Elderly a few years ago the whole store practically stopped when a certain Taylor koa model (top back and sides) was played. It would number in my top ten. But here's the rub, another identical model might or might NOT have that sound. It certainly made up for my previous impression that Taylors don't project well. I find myself judging guitars by what's most familiar, so my own guitars make that standard. However, there are ones which got away, like the aforementioned Taylor, Gurian, Beneteau, one or two others. Sometimes I forget why God lets me have a credit card!

Peace, Mooh.

Guest Jim .... I know what you mean, I certainly wouldn't want my Taylor catchin a bout of sound rot of a Lowden!!!

Actually I wouldn't mind getting a hold of a Lowden.

As Mooh states, guitars are subjective (and there would be no GAS). I have a Taylor 310 that is absoulutely exceptional in tone, depth and range. I've played a Taylor 810, that doesn't match it.
