I am selling my 2009 Taylor 716ce LTD. This is a beautiful guitar, in mint condition. I never gigged with it. I am in the Atlanta, GA metro area.
This Taylor Spring Limited series guitar is carefully crafted from a back and sides of Madagascar rosewood, a Sitka spruce top, and rosewood binding. On the inside, the guitar includes Taylor’s proprietary CV bracing and patented relief rout for greater tonal resonance. Finished in a high-gloss, the guitar includes the premium appointments of a Madagascar rosewood backstrap trimmed with maple and ebony, an Indian rosewood peghead overlay, along with Taylor gold tuners and mother-of-pearl dot inlays on the fretboard. It also features a sloping Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System for high fidelity plugged-in playing.
If you know guitar tone woods, then you know Madagascar Rosewood is difficult to buy anymore. According to the experts… It offers very articulated bass and great high end, similar to Brazilian Rosewood. It has an overall responsiveness and dynamic range not found in Indian Rosewood.
I am just a hobbiest guitarist, playing guitar for my own enjoyment in my home. This guitar seldom gets played because I keep it in a case with humidity control bags. I have a Taylor 110 on a stand by my desk that is easy to pick up and play whenever, so my ‘nice’ guitar doesn’t get much use.
My price is firm. I know it is a good price. You can probably find one cheaper if you look for it, but I doubt you will find one in better condition. Please don’t ask if I will take something less – I won’t. I don’t need to sell urgently, so I am fine waiting as long as it takes. If you like to haggle, then the price is $2200 & we can work it down to $2000. Just being upfront and honest – I don’t want to waste your time or mine. The guitar’s original list price was $3,498, as you can see on the Taylor website here:
I don’t have video of my actual guitar being played, but here are a couple of links to people playing the same guitar… Not me playing, and not my guitar… just the same year & model being played by guys who play better than me anyway:
