While sorting through Taylor’s tonewood reserves recently, master builder Andy Powers and co-founder Bob Taylor rediscovered a small cache of gorgeous Macassar ebony from a purchase years ago. Andy chose to pair the back and side sets with tops of equally beautiful old-growth sinker redwood salvaged from the coastal rivers of Northern California. This extremely small-batch limited-edition run marks our first opportunity to incorporate the Macassar/sinker pairing into guitars featuring Taylor’s V-Class bracing.
Grand Auditorium body with 4-piece Simons wedge back, Venetian cutaway, mahogany neck, 1-3/4” nut width, 25-1/2” scale length, V-Class® bracing, and Crelicam West African ebony fretboard/bridge/backstrap. Appointments include ebony binding with a matching radius armrest, paua trim (top, back, fretboard extension, armrest), single-ring paua rosette with bound sound-hole, Mother-of-Pearl/paua Nouveau fretboard/peghead/bridge inlays, shaded edgeburst back and sides, Gotoh 510 antique gold tuners, and full-gloss body. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe Taylor hardshell case.
