including original Taylor hardshell case.

Here is your chance to own a Taylor 810-B dreadnought made with Brazilian rosewood sides and back and Engleman spruce top. Since it was made in 2000, this Taylor does not have the NT neck which means the heel of the neck is not laminated, something many guitar players consider to be superior to the NT. This guitar is in extremely good condition for a six year old guitar. The only mars are a few indentations on the back of the neck in the region behind the first three frets, probably caused by my capo, and one very shallow 1/2 ding on the top near the edge between the right lower bout and the endpin. I'm unable to make them show up in pictures. Other than that the guitar is in pristine condition. It has a very loud and satisfying sound. On a scale of dark to bright, I would say it has a rather bright sound, but plenty of bass as well. It's not boomy, but well balanced, perfect for flatpicking breaks, and fingerstyle players will love its ability to articulate. I'm not really anxious to sell this guitar, but all my guitars are for sale if someone really wants it.

I added the truss rod cover, but will ship original with guitar as well.

Here's a close-up of the abalone rosette.

Note the seriel number indicates that this was the 121st guitar Taylor made (or at least started) on November 9th in the year 2000.

Here's a close-up of the stylized "T" Taylor puts on the back many of their Brazilian rosewood models.

I will accept Paypal, but I would prefer a cashier's check or money order to save on the expense of using Paypal. Shipping and packing will be $55 and will include a Taylor packing box.
