  5. Item: Taylor 814ce Brazilian Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Location: Sydney Price: $8.5K - these guitars cost US$14K new, if you can find one. Item Condition: Mint - as new Reason for selling: Impulse purchase, but I need the space. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Includes all original case candy, CITES compliance certificate etc. A pretty serious bargain given that the major manufacturers have only very limited Brazilian left. Solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides (CITES compliant), solid Sitka spruce top, solid smoky ebony fretboard and bridge, along with 800 Series appointments: Advanced Performance bracing, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, pale, non-figured maple binding (body, fretboard, soundhole, heel cap), Indian rosewood top edge trim, abalone rosette outlined in rosewood, 3.5-mil all-gloss body, gloss-finish peghead, rosewood pickguard, Taylor nickel tuners, Venetian cutaway and Expression System 2 electronics. Ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case. Taylor' popular 814ce offers players the ultimate all-purpose guitar. Its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. It' a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end to the 814ce, thanks in part to the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string-gauge set. Grand Auditorium The mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker' guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA' overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be our bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won™t let you down. ES-2 The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor' ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor' proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor' custom-designed œprofessional audio-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.

  8. Guys There has been a report about this thread and it is on moderator watch. I'm sure the discussion is fascinating, but I honestly can't be bothered reading it, so am going to do with a quick general note here. Be nice or we will just close the thread. That would be a shame, as you all seem to be enjoying it.

  13. Item: Panzera Breuer automatic watch with NATO strap. 44mm stainless steel case Location: Sydney Price: $350 Item Condition: Excellent. Worn less than 5 times. Reason for selling: Too many watches Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: http://panzera-style.com/breuer-44/ Great watch with classic styling and an automatic movement for a bargain price. RRP is US$475. Not much not to like about this one. Honestly, I should probably keep it as it is such good value and can be worn casual or formal very easily with a band change, but I always seem to reach for an IWC instead! Pictures:
