Title: Taylor 710ce Mint 10 Year Old Acoustic with HSC
Post by Lonely Raven on 09/13/13 at 13:03:24

I'm looking to step into a Torii, and hoping to take advantage of Steve offering the Torii IV at the III price - otherwise, truth be told, I probably couldn't afford new. I figure it would make a good birthday present for myself if it shows up in November!

That said, I've made the tough decision of selling one of my guitars to get up the cash and put my order in. I would use a Decware amp, far, far more than I'd play an acoustic.

This is an original, and quite minty, Taylor 710ce from 2003. This was the first year they came out with their new (current) bracing design, and started using the Expression pickup system that is so well loved. The first one I bought I wasn't happy with (Special Order), and the bracing developed a rattle. I sent it in to Taylor, and they replaced it with one they hand picked for me (this one) because they felt is was an excellent example of a 710ce. This guitar is LOUD, and projects well. I grew up playing my Dad's '73 Ovation bowl back acoustic which was well seasoned, so the Taylor had a high bar to surpass.

For Decware friends, I'll let my Taylor go for $2000 flat - I'll cover the shipping, or I'll hand deliver it to you at the Decfest if you're going, or I could ship it ASAP (just need to find a large enough box!). Again, guitar is in perfect condition, it's lived in it's original Taylor Hard Shell Case with a sharkfin humidifier. Case is included obviously. $2000

OMG....I have been wanting a really nice acoustic for a while now.  That is one beautiful guitar!!  Oh how I wish I could buy that from you, but unfortunately with buying the new Torii, I can't afford both right now.   DAMN!!

Good luck with the sale....I hope it finds a nice home.

Sounds like you absolutely should get the acoustic instead! LOL

Just think, hand picked at the Taylor factory, saving at least $500 over new, and 10 years of light seasoning! You know you want it! :)

Bump!

Open to offers! I really want to get my Torii IV order in, and this would put me past the tipping point!

Last bump!

I'm bringing it to Decware Zen Fest along with my Zen Amp.

Then it's off to eBay to hopefully not scalp myself.  :-/

Yeah, but it makes me that much more antsy to have my damn amp!

I'm going to have to swing by Steve's every week, knock on his door and say "is it done yet?"  :'(

No joke, Lon. I offered to sweep floors to help pay for the amp.  ;D

Well, I certainly know how it is. It is unfortunate in some ways that you can't just go on line and order one and have it arrive a few days later. But as you already know, it's worth the wait.

Waiting on a CSP2+ I ordered myself, there was a bit of a mixup and soon I'll have it. Looking forward to letting it burn in in my second system while I take the trusty old CSP2 there over to my Dad's system to take the place of a ZStage there. We love this hobby, it really does things for us.
