I am selling my gorgeous "Used - Like New" 2014 Taylor 818e Grand Orchestra acoustic guitar.

It's the new redesigned 800 series that Andy Powers made for Taylor's 40th anniversary: thin 3.5 gloss finish, maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlay, gorgeous smoky striped ebony fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.

Meticulously maintained... Just waxed it, cleaned fret-board, and replaced strings with Elixir Phosphor Bronze NANOWEB. This big-body guitar is responsive to a light touch so I've enjoyed playing finger-style on this big boy too. I use the D'Addario Two-Way Humidification System.

It's a Taylor, so Easy Play-ability and sounds beautiful.
