You are looking at a Taylor Custom Shop Grand Symphony Cocobolo/Premium Adirondack Spruce Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1105106125. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Sam Ash Music is pleased to introduce a set of five exquisite, unique custom-built acoustic-electrics from Taylor Guitars. In March 2016, the Sam Ash guitar team, including Sammy Ash (COO), John Conley (Guitar Buyer/Product Manager), Ben Ash (Regional Manager) and Danielle Shapiro (Copywriter/Product Specialist), set out to El Cajon, California to the Taylor factory and hand-selected extraordinary tonewoods from Andy Powers' personal wood library to create the ultimate set of fine custom instruments for the Sam Ash Guitars of Distinction collection. The members of the Sam Ash team were honored to have private access to some of the most exclusive tonewoods ever available. The Sam Ash team, all of whom are guitar players themselves, went through numerous sets of tonewoods until they found five sets that were truly exceptional. Once the tonewoods were selected, the Sam Ash team spent many weeks deliberating and meticulously selecting every fine detail of each instrument. From body shapes, neck carves and bracings to visual touches including inlays, bindings and rosettes, all of the appointments the Sam Ash team decided on were selected to complement each instrument, both sonically and visually.

We believe that this exclusive set of custom guitars will cover any sound, any playing style and any desire that a true collector and player would want as a centerpiece of their guitar collection. Each guitar in this custom collection comes complete with hardshell case and a signed copy of Bob Taylor's book, Guitar Lessons: A Life's Journey Turning Passion into Business. Each book has been personally signed by Bob Taylor himself and Taylor master luthier Andy Powers.

What master luthier Andy Powers has to say about this guitar:
"This particular guitar, with its cocobolo back and sides mixed with an Adirondack spruce top has a strong, vibrant personality, echoed by the bold colors and dramatic figure on the wood and curly maple trim. The Adirondack spruce contributes to a very high volume ceiling and powerful attack, while the cocobolo helps put extra emphasis on the upper register harmonics, making for an extra high fidelity response."

Check out the back on this Custom Grand Symphony—it's absolutely mesmerizing! Hand-selected from Andy's secret stash, this has to be one of the most magnificent pieces of cocobolo that the Sam Ash team has ever come across. Its reddish tint and black swirly grains are truly incredible to look at. Paired with the Grand Symphony shape and a premium Adirondack spruce soundboard, this Custom GS is a powerful strummer, but at the same time, it sounds equally amazing when you're flatpicking or playing elegant fingerstyle arrangements. The perfect blend of the bold GS voice and cocobolo's somewhat bright sonic character, it has a nice full lows and sparkling trebles. A true performer, this Custom Grand Symphony comes fitted with a set of high-quality Gotoh 510 tuning machines in a classy Antique Gold finish, a bone nut and saddle, and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics for superb amplified tone.

Complementing the back and sides beautifully, this Custom GS boasts a matching cocobolo headstock veneer and truss rod cover while paua top trim, a paua rosette, and abalone Ocean Vine inlays on the headstock, fretboard and bridge add to this guitar’s top-shelf aesthetic. This Custom Grand Symphony also sports figured maple binding for the top, back, neck, headstock and soundhole along with a beautifully elegant figured maple armrest.
