Pick Up An Extremely Rare 2010 Taylor Rosewood Reserve Build Grand Auditorium Model - And It's New! With A Sitka Spruce Top, Uniquely Figured Rosewood Back And Sides, And 900 Series Appointments
Hidden within the fabled labyrinth below Chuck Levin's, this dusky jewel now emerges into the light. Featured in Taylor's 2010 -"Wood And Steel-" magazine, there were only five of these built.
ROSEWOOD RESERVE BUILD
In 2010, five sets of select figured Indian rosewood were utilized to create an ultra-limited offering of custom Grand Auditoriums, each one topped with premium Sitka spruce and voiced with Adirondack CV bracing. This unusual model features 900 Series appointment styling and incorporates Taylor's Expression System.
The rosewood back boasts a beautifully mottled figure with an elegant mingling of earthy hues, including rich espresso, deep-toned ocher, and a reddish cast, while a rich bloodwood center strip and binding provide a striking visual counterpoint. On its front, the bloodwood also adorns the soundhole, fretboard, and peghead.
Additional appointments include a figured rosewood backstrap, a laser engraved Victorian inlay design, a green heart abalone rosette around the soundhole, and antique Gotoh tuners.
