2009 Taylor XXXV-GS-W 35th Anniversary

In celebration of the company’s 35th Anniversary, Taylor built a limited run of XXXV models which featured some of their best woodwork and master-grade tonewoods. This XXXV GS-W Grand Symphony is one of these very few guitars, and features a Laskin-inspired radius armrest, figured black walnut back and sides with a subtle shaded edgeburst, and a 5A-grade Sitka spruce top with the company’s highest performance CV bracing. The guitar’s body is dressed up with an abalone pearl rosette and bound soundhole, fine wooden purflings to the top, sides, and back that are meticulously and perfectly mitred, ebony bindings, and a classy Florentine cutaway. The neck’s ornamentation is tastefully simple, with mitred wooden purflings to the headstock and fingerboard that mirror those of the body, a small pearl ‘35’ inlaid at the 12th fret, and a pearl logo in an ebony overlay. The back of the headstock features a gloss finished 3-ply ebony backstrap, which looks fabulous against the satin finish of the rest of the neck. The tuners are gold Gotoh 510, and the nut and saddle are bone.

The guitar is in excellent condition and shows almost no playwear of any kind. The frets are unworn, and the set-up was just completed here. 1-3/4’ nut, 25.5” scale. Onboard Expression System electronics.
