Robert Taylor / Style 1 Cocobolo Bearclaw Spruce NAMM / 2007 / Guitar For Sale

Robert Taylor guitars are very rare, and equal to what other brands call "private stock" or "masterbuilt". Up to 12 of these instruments are made each week, and each has great sound and build quality. This specimen was built especially for the NAMM show in 2007 and is a perfect example of what R. Taylor stands for. The build quality and vision of creating a perfect instrument is the foundation of these instruments, but the fact that they are hand crafted sets them apart from a normal Taylor and takes the R. Taylor's to another level. The Grand Symphony body is made from an exceptionally beautiful set of Cocobolo, which has a great impact both optically and sonically. The body contains a Sitka spruce top with an striking 'Bearclaw' pattern that almost looks like a figured top. The top is finished by the luxurious and comfortable armrest bevel and is supported by a modified X-brace. This results in a strong, bright and rich tone with a wonderfully percussive character, perfect for both drop and open tunings. This R. Taylor is in excellent condition with minor traces of use including a couple very light and small dings. Very close to near mint.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205




We LOVE Guitars, and buy and trade for most stringed instruments. But we also do consignment, make appraisals for insurance or put you on our watch list. Please check the Buying & Trading page for details.
