Rare 1995 Taylor AB-2 acoustic-electric bass. This is one of the earliest ones built. It features imbuia (Brazilian walnut) top, back & sides. The AB-2 was designed for the player who prefers more tonal separation from string to string, while retaining plenty of the essential bass "thump". It has a very large body with amazingly deep sound - pretty awesome. The bass is in excellent condition overall. Along with a few tiny chips in the binding, the top does have a crack repair that was professionally cleated (not uncommon in these large-bodied basses.) My personal tech has gone over the entire instrument and all is well with it. Cosmetically, the repair is barely noticeable (see the numerous pictures) unless the light hits it directly, but it is there. You really need to look hard to notice it. It does not affect the sound or performance of the instrument at all. Shipping cost is high due to the overall size of this instrument - it's huge. Fedex charges based on size more than weight. PRICE: $1995 plus shipping/insurance. Not interested in trades.
