  • Taylor

    A full-sounding guitar with a Tasmanian blackwood body and Taylor ES-T electronics.

    Unlike its blackwood guitar siblings in Taylor's Fall Limited Editions, the Baritone-8 features a Sitka spruce top instead of cedar. The result — a slightly more crisp, clear response — helps with the articulation in the lower baritone register, especially with the two octave strings. The blend of woody depth and treble punch translates into an expressive baritone voice. Wood-rich appointments include creamy Rock maple as a back mini wedge and for the binding and “fishbone”-style rosette. Small dot inlays and a satin-finish back and sides support a tastefully organic aesthetic.

    Grand Symphony (GS)
    Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16-1/4" / Body Depth: 4-5/8"
    The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.

    Tasmanian Blackwood
    Origin: Australia
    Tasmanian blackwood is an acacia wood species that’s a close cousin of Hawaiian koa. Though it might not match koa’s cachet in terms of exotic beauty, its tonal range is similar, and visually it often exhibits some of koa’s same character traits. Blackwood also is sourced from forests that are responsibly managed, making it a sustainable wood for guitar making. Blackwood takes koa’s basic tonal profile (a blend of mahogany’s meaty midrange and maple’s brightness) and adds a splash of rosewood’s overtone bloom.

    Goes Well With: Different playing styles, depending on the body style and top pairing. A cedar top will help bring out a springy, woody, warm low end with a rich overtone complement that fingerstylists may really enjoy. Stronger strummers and flatpickers will match up well with a bigger body and might be better suited with a spruce top.

    The ES-T
    The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. It features an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full ES. Featuring a custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response, the system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator (which is lit when the battery is being used). The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole. Available on the 100 and 200 Series.
