    Hey John! Yes, according to Taylor this was a proto made last August with a Mahogany top. They confirmed it was the only one made that way.

    Unique then! I'm obviously a huge fan of Taylors ever since my first one back around 1998 or so.

    I like the way they did the mahogany. I've played a few "ordinary" 110s and liked them lot. I might like the mellower tones of a mahogany top even more. :)

    Very nice! I was gonna say the "spruce" is honeying nicely. I have a BigBaby Taylor spruce top '05 that is turning color well now and sounds great. Great tone.
    Congrats!

    Tony, After playing many guitars, including the 2017 110e walnut which I really liked, the Mahogany top definitely adds a more mellow tone. Since I just got it I'll wait till I change strings but I might try strings with a slightly brighter tone.

    Nice! A one off Taylor guitar! Lucky you! I've got a couple myself and love them.
