If you’re looking for a rare and special 12-string, this one certainly qualifies. While you may see some 855 models out there, this Brazilian version is not easy to find.

She is just about to celebrate her 25th birthday and has been totally babied. The guitar is in near mint condition with only a tiny minor finish flaw where the neck joins the body, and some slight lifting of the pick-guard along the edges. The guitar is otherwise flawless. Also included is the original Taylor hard shell case, the case candy, and adjustment tool, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is going to be completely STOKED!!
