Trio of Tonewoods
Taylor Guitars has introduced limited run Grand Auditorium shaped guitars in a trio of stunning tonewoods. Options include quilted sapele (for projection and warmth), flamed mahogany (visual appeal and strong mid-range response), or blackheart sassafras (striking blonde and brown hues, plus dry, woody response), paired with a premium Sitka spruce top. Each model is a dramatic, hand-crafted Florentine cutaway. Attractive appointment packages accent these hand-selected woods—Indian rosewood binding and curly maple edge trim, and “Capstone” inlay of mother-of-pearl and rosewood on the fretboard and rosette. Each is equipped with Taylor’s award-winning Expression System 2 electronics, featuring a piezo pickup design that gives players authentic amplified acoustic tone. The guitars come in a hardshell case.
