Check out the new limited edition Tayors on this site. Beautiful machines.

Also watch the on-line video there and hear Bob Taylor explain the benefits of the shorter scale... not the 12-fret guitar but the shorter scale length of the string. Most Taylors have the longer, more common 25.5 inch scale length, but they have been making some with a 24.75 inch scale length (which Gibson used a lot). I've always liked that scale length--the resulting lower tension and closer fret placement makes it ideal for a lot of blues work and fingerstyle playing.
