Brazilian rosewood' glorified status as a widely coveted but highly protected tonewood is well documented, so our ability to craft a limited edition series is in itself a cause for celebration. Arguably the pinnacle of Taylor' 35th anniversary commemorative collection, our Brazilian rosewood series has received considerable attention from Bob Taylor. Bob hand-picked the sets from Taylor' ultra-limited Brazilian reserves and is personally designing each guitar based on the unique characteristics of each beautiful set of wood. A variety of body styles is being made, each featuring custom specifications that bring out the finest tonal response and aesthetic appeal possible for each set.
Bob selected the top wood, bracing style and binding individually to complement the Brazilian rosewood used for each model. Among the features all models will share are a sculpted armrest and a fretboard inlay design that Bob commissioned from his longtime friend and fellow luthier Greg Deering, whom Bob has known since his pre-Taylor days at the American Dream, where Bob and Kurt launched their careers. (Deering designed the popular "Cindy" inlay formerly used on the Taylor 900 Series.) Deering' involvement represents a fitting retrospective connection to Taylor' earliest days.
"Greg was there from the beginning," Bob says. "I made instruments with him before Taylor started, and Deering Banjos found their start while Greg worked for our company. He' an incredible inlay artist, and I wanted this guitar inlay to hearken back to the days of the cool banjo inlays because they were so popular back when we started."
