You are looking at a Taylor Custom Shop Grand Auditorium Milagro Brazilian Rosewood/Premium Adirondack Spruce Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1105106126. 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 guitar deserves to live on the top shelf, yet it will sound so good, it can't be allowed to gather dust there. This instrument, whose back and sides are constructed of Brazilian rosewood from famed Milagro, or Miracle tree, paired with super high-grade Adirondack is a fantastic representation of modern Lutherie. The tone is deep, complex, and responsive, blooming as each note decays. It makes the sort of notes a musician savors. Wood of this caliber deserves the lavish attention to detail spent on this guitar."

If you're a player that loves rosewood and appreciates the aesthetic allure of a strikingly appointed instrument, you are sure to fall in love with this premium Custom Shop Grand Auditorium. For this GA, the Sam Ash guitar team hand-picked a custom, rare selection of 300-year-old carbon-dated Brazilian rosewood that came from a tree named Milagro. Selected from Andy's exclusive tonewood library, there is an extremely limited, highly protected supply of this visually and sonically enticing tonewood and it is considered to be the greatest Brazilian left on the planet, according to master luthier Andy Powers and Bob Taylor. The Sam Ash guitar team chose to pair this stunning selection of Brazilian rosewood with a premium Adirondack spruce top and Adirondack spruce bracing. Sonically, this is one of those guitars that you can really feel the vibration of the low-end in your chest when you strum a chord, and the trebles are crisp, clear and bold with a gorgeous shimmer. The versatile cutaway Grand Auditorium shape makes this Taylor Custom Shop a superb choice for dynamic players that tend to alternate between playing styles, and the genuine bone nut & saddle and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics make this beauty as much a performer as it is a showpiece.

Now, let's talk about aesthetics. This Custom Shop Grand Auditorium offers a tasteful mixture of abalone and natural wood appointments. The intricate Tree fingerboard inlay is likely the one of the first appointments that caught your eye. The inlay features a koa trunk with paua and black oyster accents that pair beautifully with the paua top trim and rosette. The Sam Ash team also chose to incorporate figured maple for the bindings, armrest, backstrip and headstock logo because it provides an incredible visual contrast to the dark Brazilian rosewood body. Gotoh 510 Antique gold tuning machines offer the perfect balance of performance, tuning stability and elegant looks.
