Taunton has several nicknames -- the Silver City, the Christmas City, and most notably, the Oh God Lock The Doors Til We Get to Mansfield City. Making a bid to add "sweet gear made of exotic wood"...city, Taunton Green.
From a pro ceramic sculptor/self-taught woodworking luthier duo outta Providence (rest easy, the studio's in Taunton), TG's a collection of intricately crafted, handmade housewares and guitars all constructed from a wildly extensive palate of exotic woods, also the unit by which you purchase large quantities of caviar in RichPersonCostco (it's in Weston). Must-have conversation starters include the elegant six-pilsner-glass'd autumn mini-brew sampler made from black walnut/padauk; a set of six 4in coasters plus caddy cut from five different woods (Hard Maple, Sapele, Mahogany) and sealed for durability; and a solid lineup of rocker-friendly multi-wood cutting boards shaped like electric guitars -- ideal for cutting up red hot chili peppers. And Panteras. There're also artisan gems like the 20-inch burled maple candle holder with five colored half-moon glass votives, and a series of retro-styled clocks built from a slew of woods including purpleheart, black walnut, and Massachusetts flame maple, which grows most abundantly in Provincetown.
If you'd rather play the wood, TG is an accomplished luthier and peddles a handsome portfolio of guitar bodies/necks/fretboards like a semi hollow tele style with "bookmatched Koa surrounded by Bloodwood and Ebony w/ Zebrawood Bouts", and a hand-carved electric made from mahogany and single cut ash, also Ashley from Taunton's most popular nickname, for what she'll do to your tires if you risk stopping at the lights.
