To the best of my knowledge, the only Taylor ukes produced have been sold as very limited and expensive matched pairs along with the corresponding guitars; I doubt anyone would break up a matched ukulele / guitar pair.

Very true.

There is a koa Builders's Reserve set from Taylor at Musicians Friend for only $9,999.

You could always buy that and sell the guitar.:)

I got both BR-IV (koa) and BR-VII (mahogany) and they are sound great. I prefer the sound of BR-IV more than BR-VII.

Here is the BR-IV
55478

I am lucky that someone bought the BR-IV guitar and I took the ukulele. However, I bought the full set of BR-VII. btw, I am still searching someone to buy the guitar from me since I don't play guitar. :(

I have played the Taylor koa before. It's very nice. Sounds and plays very much like a nice kanilea

In the current issue of the Taylor guitar magazine bob says they are thinking about it but no hard and fast plans yet for production of a stand alone uke.

I've owned several Taylor guitars over the years, and have great respect for them. I'd take that guitar off your hands except for three things. 1. It's a 12 fret neck, and I much prefer 14. 2. It's not a cutaway. 3. Oh yeah, I don't have that kind of money. Well, and I spent most of my life being the very definition of a musician. Someone who loads $5000 worth of equipment into a $500 car to drive 100 miles to a $50 gig. (and that's BEFORE the bar tab)

But good luck, and congrats on having those two gorgeous Taylor Ukes.

Well, you're misinformed on 1. and 2. Can't help you with 3. :D

Thanks for that bit of info. On the Taylor site they had it listed with the characteristics I noted. Still have that problem with item number 3 though. ;^(
