Taylor proudly celebrates 35 years of guitar-making with its most eclectic and exotic limited edition ever.
The 35th Anniversary Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar marks a milestone in Taylor's history of crafting top-quality guitars.
Brazilian rosewood's glorified status as a widely coveted but highly protected tonewood is well-documented, so Taylor's ability to craft a limited edition series is in itself a cause for celebration. Arguably the pinnacle of Taylor's 35th Anniversary Commemorative Collection, the Brazilian rosewood guitar series has received considerable attention from Bob Taylor. Bob hand-picked the sets from Taylor's ultra-limited Brazilian reserves and designed each guitar personally, based on the unique characteristics of each beautiful set of wood. Bob selected the top wood, bracing style, and binding of each guitar individually to complement the Brazilian rosewood used for each one.
The commemorative dreadnought guitar boasts a deep and medium-sized body, creating a sound chamber that rings out in balanced harmony. Whether strumming on the rhythm, or getting wild on a barn-burning solo, the Taylor Brazilian rosewood dreadnought holds its own with clear, full-sounding projection that cuts through any mix.
The guitar's body offers comfort when accessing upper-register notes on the sturdy ebony fingerboard. The solid Englemann spruce top and Solid Brazilian rosewood body produce crystal-clear tone, full range and volume—all with breathtaking looks.
The Taylor NT neck joint creates a tight and sturdy bond, fastening the body to the tropical mahogany neck to produce an incredibly solid structure. The Taylor standard neck carve, 1-3/4" nut width, and 15" fretboard radius provide comfort when performing intricate movements across the guitar's 20 frets.
At the heart of the 35th Anniversary Taylor Brazilian rosewood guitar lies an impressive and intuitive electronics system that lets you dial in your ideal amplified sound. The Taylor Expression System (ES) delivers a tone that will satisfy the most demanding pro player, yet is simple enough for anyone to plug in and sound great. The ES incorporates three different magnetic sensors. Two strategically placed Dynamic Body Sensors affixed to the underside of the soundboard capture the complex nuances of the top's vibration, while a Dynamic String Sensor mounted beneath the fretboard extension registers string and neck vibration. The preamp boosts the pickup signal cleanly, without the need for artificial EQ coloration. The balanced, low-impedance signal the ES produces can run direct into a mixer or PA in most situations, and is free of distortion at almost any volume. Three simple onboard control knobs preserve the aesthetic beauty of this Taylor, allowing you to easily adjust the volume, bass, and treble to suit your personal preferences and performance environment.
Dressed in an ultra-violet curved polyester finish, and featuring Gotoh 510 tuners and antique gold hardware, this rosewood Taylor guitar will make your jaw drop with every glance. Each 35th Anniversary Taylor guitar is shipped with a commemorative "35" fretboard inlay, and are accompanied with a custom label and certificate of authenticity as well as a Taylor case.
