John Taylor is selling his 1999 Model 1, which he bought directly from me. It has the most stunning Cocobolo back and sides.
It has been very lightly played and is in almost new condition – it sounds amazing & needs to be wrapped in blankets to stop it ringing !!! …… any potential buyer must note, blankets not included !
The reason for the sale is that I have recently downsized homes and I have 3 very active small grand children who tend to run round at full tilt, leading me to the conclusion that it is just a matter of time before the twain WILL meet resulting in a damaged guitar and a nasty case of sclerosis of the wallet !
The sound is full and deep with the characteristic sustain and tone expected from Stefan’s instruments. With that in mind it does not need to be driven hard to achieve a perfectly balanced sound when used either on stage or in an unplugged situation. The action was set up by Stefan and I consider it to be perfect needing no adjustment since its original purchase. I will be sorry to let it go but the time has come to pass it on to a musician who will benefit by & appreciate this stunning instrument.
