    Awesome condition. Slick player. Stays in tune as well as any 12 string can. Remember the old joke "how long does it take to tune a 12 string? We don't know, nobody's ever done it". This is a 1995 model, back before all the cost cutting "improvements". Neck carved from one solid piece of mahogany, not cut and glued at the headstock. Slotted diamond abalone position markers, not small round dots like on current models. Rosette is abalone, not wood like the current models. Inside label signed by Robert Taylor. This is back when they made them right. This vintage is often seen for $1,700. Selling for $1,200 including case. Selling because it just doesn't get used, not because I need the cast so NO DEALING! Oh yeah, the case looks like it's been around, which it has. Instant "cred" when you walk in the room.;-)

    Need LOTS of detailed pics please!
    I already have my 2003 510CE, but might know someone who might be interested in the Jumbo. Thanks!

    Hmmm... I'll try to take some, but, c'mon, they won't show anything. You gotta have some serious hillbilly tracks (of which there are none on this guitar) for anything to show in a pic. Charging the digi cam as we speak though. I will do my best. As far as your guitar, love the C, hate the E :)
