Presenting the all new Taylor 858e LTD 50th Anniversary Rosewood Grand Orchestra 12-String. Only 858 of the 858e LTD models will be made. Harkening back to Taylor’s jumbo 12-strings of the 1970s, this elegantly appointed Grand Orchestra features a classic Indian rosewood/Sitka spruce tonewood pairing for deep, shimmering, high-fidelity sound along with remarkable pitch accuracy and touch sensitivity. The first 12-string to join Taylor's 50th Anniversary Collection, the 858e LTD offers a rich, powerful "wall-of-sound" voice along with a supremely inviting handfeel--a nod to the playable 12-strings that helped put Taylor on the map back in the mid-'70s. With Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a Sitka spruce top, this big-bodied, limited-edition Grand Orchestra aligns with the ethos that defined those early models that Taylor was first known for. Modern design elements like their V-Class voicing architecture enhance the volume, sustain, pitch accuracy and touch sensitivity. Their double-mounted string anchoring system uses a shared anchor point for each pair of strings to maintain a steady string break angle over the saddle and ensure optimal tonal balance. Refined visual appointments include mother-of-pearl Progressive Diamond fretboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl peghead logo, a three-ring green abalone rosette and a faux tortoise pickguard. Celebratory 50th anniversary design elements include Taylor gold mini tuners, ebony bridge pins with gold acrylic dots and a special commemorative label inside. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe Western Floral hardshell case. Photos are of the actual guitar for sale, SN 1205154014.
