It Did Not Follow Me Home

I went to the Taylor Guitars Road Show tonight to take a look at the new maple-bodied 600 series guitars. They were quite nice, but didn't really suit me.

I did find one absolutely lovely guitar there though. Some years ago, I was at a road show where I saw a 6-string guitar with a sinker redwood top and macassar ebony back and sides. I commented at the time that it was very pretty, but a bit deep-voiced for my taste. On the other hand, it would make a glorious 12-string guitar.

And there was a 12-string guitar there tonight which -- although it had a spruce top -- had the macassar ebony back and sides.

It was indeed glorious.

It was also just north of $7000, so it did not follow me home.

I must take my Guild 12-string out of the closet and play it some more. :)
