Laminate (?) Peeling Off Headstock 4 Replies

I have a 415 Jumbo (2001). A year or two ago I noticed light-shaded rings around the tuning posts. These gradually got bigger, and finally I realized that they were sort like bubbles. I could pick at…Continue

Count me in then.  Thanks for the opportunity.

That would be great, Ed. There's not a lot to do - in fact, other than reading messages that show up, I've not had to do anything to maintain the group. Let me know and I'll promote your membership to administrator.

What does it require, Jim. I might be willing.

Friends -

It's time for me to renew my subscription and I probably will not - I just don't use this site enough to make it worth the $30/year to do so. I don't want this group to go away, however, so if one of you would like to step up, I'll convert the ownership to someone else. Please let me know.

I'm glad your visit to the United States was a good one, Jan.  I've never been to Denmark but I have visited Norway, the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany, so I've been relatively close.  I would love to take the Martin factory tour, but I live on the opposite side of the country, in Arizona.  The Taylor factory is only about 5-6 hours drive from here, so I'll probably get a chance to take their factory tour first.  I hope you enjoy your Taylor 110.

Thank you very much.

I live in Europe, in the small country Denmark, our capital is Copenhagen (just to put me on the map)

This year I payed a visit to your wonderfull country, and was on a factory tour at Martin.

I´m happy to say, that even if I have traveled many countryes, the American way of being friendly and helpfull to forigners are outstanding.

Taylor's "low end" models are really excellent guitars for the money. I used to own a 214ce that sounded fabulous, and I only got rid of it because I bought a custom Taylor. I gave the 214 to my daughter, and she loves it. You might consider calling or emailing Taylor Guitars for advice on getting rid of the hum - their customer service is outstanding. If you haven't registered your 110 in your name yet you should, if for no other reason that getting Wood & Steel every quarter. Taylor's contact page can be found at If you aren't located in the U.S., check out Taylor's international distribution partner page at

Hi Mark

Thank you,- and I think you are rigth,

I don`t know how old the guitar is, but it`s very playable, and the guys in the band prefers it to my Martins because its sparkling sound and the lack of "Martin bas"

(the bas-man often asked me "do you or I play the bas" when I was playing the Martin

My only problem is to get rid of the hum, and it has something to do with grounding.

The hum disappears when I touch the preamp/pu or the plug in

Hi, Jan.  The preamp board in your photos does not look like the ES-T preamp Taylor has been shipping for the last couple of years, and you're right, it doesn't appear to have the phase switch.  It's also not mounted the way Taylor mounts their preamps today.  My guess is that the guitar is old enough to have a very early version of Taylor's pickup/preamp system.  The Taylor website has a video about the ES-T system that shows a closeup photo of the preamp board if you'd like to see what I was talking about.

Comment by Jan Borgstroem on December 17, 2010 at 3:22pm
Hi Mark.Baker or anyone else able to help me out
I have a problem, The switch you wrote abeut,- well I can`t find it.
As I understood your post, it was to be found on the pre-amp.
Here is a link to the fotos I took inside today (I guess I´m 6 hours ahead of you, living in Europe)
Could you please direkt me ?
