So...   I'm looking at a few different used Taylors right now.   I've heard people argue both sides of this topic.  Some swearing by the old fishman preamp/pickup system, while others claim the new…Continue

Taylor 12 fret guitars. Which model do you have or recommend and what do you like about them? 3 Replies

I am in the market for a Taylor 12 fret guitar and was wondering what experiences others have had with these.  I am leaning towards the 522e with a Western red cedar top, which would be the same as…Continue

I never noticed that Neil played a vintage Taylor 12-string during the Live Rust concert. Or is that the Rust Never Sleeps tour? Anyway, thanks for sending the link. (I guess his guitar wasn't "vintage" when he played it back then. Course, neither was he.) ;^]

I think I read in another forum that NY played (plays?) a Taylor 855 w/ moustache bridge.

Comment by Edward Sparks on January 15, 2014 at 9:13am
Yep, that's the vintage one!

Not sure and will need to look at it again...but in the 80's he had one of the originals with the really fancy "smiling" bridge! They haven't made that one in a long time although I think they did a limited run of them a few years ago...

Anyone know which model Taylor 12-string Neil Young is playing here in his recent Carnegie Hall performance?

I had a 2003 Taylor 310 CE L7 until a few months back. Beautiful Tasmanian Blackwood guitar that was my main studio and performing acoustic. Great guitar all around, and I still miss it a bit at times. I wouldn't mind getting another Taylor at some point. They make great guitars, and for the money, some of the prettiest ones around.

I finally ordered a Taylor 522e 12 fret today with a Western red cedar top.  Taylor is actually closed for the holidays until Jan. 6, so the order will not officially go in until then.  I also optioned for last years 512e 12 fret if it is still available from Taylor.  Anyway, I can't wait!  I hope to have it around March 1st . . .COME ON SPRING!!!
