Ever heard of the "pallet guitars" by Taylor?

No ply wood at all :D (I know that Lee and Michael are not big fans!)

A very special limited edition and the first one was sold for more than....$7500!

I have a feeling that should go into one of the "ugly guitar" threads that we have in the main category, Guy. What on earth convinced someone to pay that price?

They could have at least taken the nails out of the floorboards before they reclaimed them.

Do they do basses (cheap ones!)? I wan't one! Don't like the inlay but love the wood, I wonder if I could get a wine-stained one?

I read that these series of guitars were made from oak pallets found on the yard at Taylor. The guitars were made to prove that un-ortodox choices of woods could be used as tonewood.

The nails were pulled out and the holes were filled with aluminum.

Have never heard of guitars made from wine stained woods but Fylde guitars have a single malt matured model...
