Well, Taylors go from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars.
If you're looking to buy one new, the only high-end guitar place I know is Musicforce, in Seoul.

School Music. I've used them a few times, they have a store in the Lotte World dept. store as well as online.

Honestly, there's quite a markup on high end guitars. I wouldn't bother buying here. I ordered my Suhr from a distributor in the states. Somehow, it got through customs without any fees and I managed to avoid the 20 odd percent import tax, which would've still been cheaper than the markup Korean stores add. The guitar stores are also pretty shitty, they don't want you to test out their guitars not on display, usually the higher end ones, as these must be kept 'mint'.

Another option is to take a trip to Japan and go shopping there.

Nakwon, in Seoul, brags to be the largest music arcade in the world but 90% of their stuff is crap.
