A limited edition
Taylor "Jewel"

I'm not much "into" pop stars, so the celebrity endorsement on this guitar really doesn't interest me. However, I am rather taken by the styling and quality of this moderately priced Taylor size "14" guitar.

The back and sides are of satin wood, which is hardly ever seen on guitars. It's an old standby in classic English and French furniture design because of its striking grain pattern and creamy yellow coloring. This guitar is yet another example of the fine tonal quality found in many exotic hardwoods that just don't happen to be "traditional" in guitar construction.

Interesting inlay and soundhole decorations are unique to this "Jewel" limited edition.
