This guitar, currently listed on eBay, was allegedly:
ordered and designed as a wall hanger, for a wealthy man who gave the rep Taylor specs to build his one of a kind dream guitarBuilt by Century Guitars, you'd be forgiven for not realising that it was built to Taylor specs what with all the bling on display: witness that octagonal soundhole and the lashings of pearloid material. That has to be the thickest piece of binding I have ever seen on a guitar! Note how the string anchors are spread out behind the bridge saddle - I think they must have been inspired by Babicz Guitars here.
It's too ostentatious for my own tastes, I prefer my acoustics to be good honest workhorses. I'm more interested in how they play rather than how they look, but then again this is a very visual blog and so this guitar is well at home on Guitarz.
Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2999.
