  • Comments: To say John McQuarry is among the best builders on the planet would be an under statement. He is truly in a league of his own. The lines are perfect, the detail is mind-boggling, and the sound and feel of these guitars is pure magic. This one features a very special set of Madagascar Rosewood. The colors of this wood are a feast for the eyes. The sound is deep and thick with an amazing clear, rich Bass. While this wood is often compared to Brazilian, it has a bit more clarity to my ear, and at a fraction of the price. This guitar resonates with such a magnitude of sound I find myself holding on tight so it doesn't vibrate off my lap. This is one of the most alive guitars I have ever played.
  • Condition: Ex- Several indentations on top but none through the finish...just honest play wear. A pickup was installed and removed and a Taylor strap pin is currently installed. It is ready to drop in the pickup of your choice.
