Neil has at least two 1978 Taylor 855 twelve-string guitars. Supposedly he purchased one from a local music shop while visiting Florida in early 1978 and immediately ordered a second one.

The guitar was debuted onstage at the Boarding House performances in May 1978 and was featured during the 1978 Rust Never Sleeps tour.

You can hear this guitar on Thrasher from 1978, many of the acoustic versions of Pocahontas including the 1993 Unplugged performance, and on the solo acoustic Cortez renditions during the 1999 and 2003 solo tours.
