Otis Taylor required very specific tonal
As a fine Arts professional, Otis Taylor's vision is a combination of vintage retro and ultra sharp European styling; this guitar looks like an expensive Italian suit from the 1930's.
This collaboration has produced a musical instrument that truly reflects the artistry of both Otis Taylor and the Santa Cruz Guitar Company. The OT's compound radius fretboard allows lightning action while the Sitka Spruce with hot hide glue ensures the substantial power and clarity as described by Guitar Player Magazine: Dimensional and complex immediately come to mind when playing the Otis Taylor. A very rich sounding guitar with impressive articulation and note detail, the Otis Taylor Signature makes you want to keep on playing because it is so inspiring. And that's reason enough to give it an Editors Pick Award.
Brand new, and unplayed instrument.
