    A great sounding Taylor K22



    The best sounding Flatop I ever played!

    It is a SJ 200 Quilted Maple made in the 80's. A guy needed some money about 13 years ago and I got it real cheap like new. It is one in a million. The sound and sustain are amazing. Maybe that is why Elvis played one and so many others. I played over 100 guitars before I chose the Taylor for it's distinct sound. I would like a Humming Bird also but one from the 60's is pretty high priced as are the vintage Martins. Thanks

    Yea the Vintage Humming Bird runs up around $4000.00 and up as far as Martins go my guitar guy here in town has one I've played it,yes it has great sound and I know they say they're strong but it feels so light that I'd be worried about breaking it just by holding it and if I had to worry about it all the time it would probably stay in the case forget about banging on it like my cheap J&D Brothers or my Guild at least with a Gibson you can feel that they're solidly built,mind me asking what you paid for the 200?

    Here's the link to a really nice vintage J-200. I've been saving up my lunch money, but I'll bet it'll be gone before I can afford it!

    $1500 and he waited a couple of months for me to come up with it. I wasn't even looking for a Gibson. To me they are overbraced and the sound is muffled but not this one. Maybe it is the maple wood. I really don't know. My buddy's Artist Model SJ 200 sounds terrible. You are right about the right one. They all sound different.

    Yea that's definitely a good price those deals don't come along very often.Is it all maple or does it have the spruce top for that matter I'm not even sure if Gibson makes an all maple guitar?I know my Guild is all maple and has huge sound and a great sustain also,different wood equal different sound as I'm sure you're aware.
