With its sublime tonewoods and deluxe aesthetic details, this Jumbo truly lives up to its Presentation name. The Englemann Top responds with a mix of overtone warmth, royal complexity and soft dynamic power that blends beautifully with the crystal clear treble and boom of the Brazilian Rosewood. Englemann's dynamic character provides clarity and warmth for strumming and fingerstyle without losing its soft-touch responsiveness. The PS15 is detailed to mirror its refined tone, with abalone inlays and matching trim. This Jumbo provides rounded notes for fingerstyle or solo playing all while powering through a mix while strummed. This 90's Taylor could be the guitar you've been searching for.
Sonically, Engelmann has a mature tone, and yields a slightly richer midrange than Sitka, which makes a guitar sound a bit older. Old growth Engelmann tends to have a sonic attribute of smoothness or refinement to it, but the days of older growth Engelmann trees are essentially gone for now.
Brazilain Rosewood is one of the worlds most coveted Tonewoods(certainly the most expensive) & has been proven time and time again to be one of the sweetest sounds to ever come from a guitar; and this model is no different. The sparkling highs, boomy lows, and sweet overtones puts this Taylor in a very particular category of guitar!
This Pre-Owned Taylor is in Good Condition w/ 1 very small repaired crack that was glued from the inside. There is some natural finish sinking throughout the brazilian back & sides and some light scratches and dings throughout the top.(see photos).
