    NGD: my Father is Awesome.


    So we went to an outdoor benefit today with tons of bluegrass/country and blues bands tearing it up, was fun but hot out but they did raffles in between sets and my Dad bid and won this Taylor (SB?) for me! Was totally unexpected but he had a few too many craft beers and just hit it big at the casino a few days ago and said fuck it.

    His bid was a $1000, we weren’t sure what it was worth and I had to look it up but it plays great and honestly, always kinda wanted a Taylor, but an acoustic. I’m actually not too familiar with their electrics. But, anyway, here it is.

        Awesome! Does it have a piezo option?
        ​​​​​
        my understanding is that these are good guitars that just didnt really catch on.

          It does not but the 5-way switch has some interesting different tones. I know very little about this guitar so I had to do a little research. The thing that baffles me is that there is no serial# or any type of info/model name on the guitar but it plays and sounds amazing!

            Very cool! As Taylor acoustics basically play like electrics, I'm sure that's a great playing guitar.

              Yeah, it plays fantastic! Like butter. It’s definitely different than the rest of the guitars in my collection, for sure. It’s nice to have something different, too.

              Oh, and thanks to whoever moved this thread topic in the right place.

                That's sweet man, congrats! It's nice having something everyone else doesn't have as well I believe that's a swamp ash CL-1 model, with the Cl being short for "classic".

                    Thanks! Was wondering exactly what it was. I read “SBX” but other models pop up too when you google that.

                      All this is true... including the Holy Wars thing.
