This guitar is 23 years old and is in excellent condition. It has great tone and playability. This serial number means this guitar was only the 3,298 guitar that Taylor built since their beginning in 1974 (first 11 years). In 1985 they had only 11 employees and produced 681 guitars in their first Lemon Grove, California factory.  In 1987 Taylor moved into their second Santee, California factory. By 1990 Taylor made 2,400 guitars with 40 employees and where in their third El Cajon, California, and current, factory. In 1995 Taylor made 11,000 guitars with 136 employees. Who knows how many they make now.



In 1985 Taylor was still using the Martin style bridge on the 810 as you can see in the pictures. They also covered the East Indian rosewood wood seam, on the back, with a strip of Herringbone inlay. These two features, and the condition, make this guitar very collectable



This guitar does have a few issues. The pickguard is slightly lifting, although it is not obvious when looking at the pictures or the guitar in person. There is some lacquer checking in the Sitka spruce top. There is also an extra strap button on the neck heel. Finally there is a small ding on the edge of the top shown in one of the pictures. So there are absolutely no surprises, there are many small scuffs in the finish that are not noticeable unless you hold the guitar, in the light, at just the right angle. You would expect these kinds of issues with a 23 year old guitar.



I have to sell this guitar since I just purchased an Ampeg SVT810E 8x10 speaker cabinet with a road case
