This is a traditional square-neck resonator guitar that
was designed by Tut Taylor and built in the late 90s.  I purchased the guitar in 2000 and am the second
owner.  It features a solid Honduran mahogany
body, a square neck, a rich sunburst gloss finish, a Quarterman cone, and
nickel plated hardware.  The guitar is in
good overall condition, but it does have a few un-repaired cracks that resulted
from poor humidification prior to my ownership. 
The largest is a straight hairline crack on the back of the guitar.  It is visible in the sixth
picture.  It starts beside the neck, near
the neck joint, and runs approximately 3-1/2 inches down the back and
stops.  It is a very tight crack and has
remained stable over the past 10 years.  There
is also a small 1 inch crack on the side of the neck.  It starts at the heel and runs parallel to
the fingerboard.  It is visible in the seventh
picture and has also been stable for the past 10 years.  The fingerboard binding is cracked at several
of the fret ends.  There is also a finish
blemish on one side of the headstock.  It’s
visible in the ninth picture and is best described as a scratch below the
peghead overlay.  It is currently setup
to play left-handed, but the strings can easily be reversed.  Here are some additional specifications:

  • 2” nut width
  • Bound neck and body
  • Ebony fret-board with abalone inlays
  • Nitro-cellulose finish
  • Grover butterbean tuners

This sale includes the guitar, the OHSC, 2 Stevens bars, and
a Beard brass square-neck capo.  I will
also include copies of the Complete Dobro Player by Stacey Phillips and You Can
Teach Yourself Dobro by Janet Davis.  Despite
the flaws, the guitar plays and sounds great. 
It is a high-quality guitar that is a joy to play.
