    I have been doing really well with the GAS issues as of late, but a really nice 2001 Taylor 510 came up for a nice price, and I figured I would grab it and sell my 2014 Taylor 210e. I am waiting for the 510 to make the perilous journey through FedEx to arrive at my house. It is a simple 3-hour trip but still has me worried.

    Any other 510 owners here at ST?

    That is a crack! Good eye, this was the test body and will be used to practice the different routing techniques and body contours that are needed on a Strat.

    Taylors are great guitars. I've had my 514 for 20 years.
