Taylor 218 Liberty Guitar
Pre-Owned - 2002
Mint Condition

Back in 2002 Taylor made 400 of these guitars. Each of the 13 colonies had a "Liberty Tree" (different species) under which colonists gathered to plan their rebellion against the British. Many of these trees were destroyed as the British occupied various cities during the Revolutionary War. This one was in Annapolis, Maryland, and was taken down in 1999 due to damage from Hurricane Floyd. It was believed to be 400 years old. Taylor Guitars purchased this tree and used it to make 400 grand concert, 400 baby, and 50 T-4 guitars.

This beautiful Taylor is sporting the Liberty Tree Tulip Poplar back and sides, with a Spruce top. The fretboard has the Declaration of Independence laser etched on it and it has beautiful inlay of the American flag on the headstock.

  • The back & sides then are this rare, figured Tulip Poplar wood from the Liberty Tree in Annapolis, MD.
  • Pre and post Revolutionary War flag inlays (one on the headstock and the other forms part of the patriotic rosette)
  • Hand picked Sitka Spruce top with an antique stain
  • Also, a laser-cut Decoration of Independence scroll decorates the Ebony fretboard
  • 13 stars for the original colonies, partially circle the sound hole
  • Ebony bridge with Ebony pins/pearl dots
  • Abalone top trim
  • Gold Grover tuning machines
  • Special interior label signed by Bob Taylor

  • Original Hardshell Case
