About Taylor Guitars
Taylor guitars come in many shapes and sizes. Known for balance across the tonal spectrum, each Taylor guitar body style has its own sonic traits. At NAMM 2019, the Taylor Grand Pacific body shape was announced. Andy Powers announced this new design at Taylor Roadshow 2018 in Singapore. It is a new shape built on the V-Class bracing platform. The Grand Pacific design shows how the body shape and tonewoods can work together beautifully. You'll find a bevy of distinct and desirable tonal palettes. Grand Pacific guitars have clear low-end power and tonal consistency. They are also quite versatile. They come with luxurious hardshell case with Western floral pattern, made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.
Taylor’s signature body style, Taylor Grand Auditorium guitars are great all-purpose instruments. Not too big, not too small, Taylor Grand Symphony Guitars yield a deeper, more powerful voice than Grand Auditorium guitars. The newest and largest body shape, Taylor Grand Orchestra guitars offer the boldest and richest sound you'll find in the family. The most traditional shape, Taylor dreadnought guitars offer powerful tone with deep lows and crisp highs. Baby Taylor guitars are a 3/4-size version of the dreadnought. The smallest of their full-size guitar shapes, Taylor Grand Concert guitars have a shorter scale length and wider fretboard that are perfect for fingerstyle players. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong with a Taylor guitar. Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath are among the many dedicated players of Taylor guitars, and the first two even have signature models named after them. Beauty, functionality and tone are all in harmony in every Taylor guitar model, and there's a body shape to maximize whatever music you play.
Taylor guitar builders have a long tradition of outstanding quality and innovation. Among their most recent success stories, in 2018, Taylor announced V-Class bracing, a radical departure from traditional X bracing. According to its creators, Taylor guitars with V-Class bracing produce more volume and stay in tune better than guitars with X bracing. You'll also see brilliant innovation in Taylor T5 acoustic-electric guitars. Available as the T5z Standard, T5z Pro, T5z Classic and T5z Custom, this line of hybrid Taylor guitars combines the rich sound and resonance of an acoustic guitar with the comfort and playability of an electric guitar. Each Taylor T5z has a hollow body design with an acoustic pickup and an electric pickup for extreme tone versatility. For some time now, Taylor guitars have been constructed with a patented bolt-on neck, as opposed to a glued neck. This makes it easy to realign the neck without having to take the entire instrument apart. With this advancement, as well as Taylor's renowned Expression System pickup, available on Taylor acoustic-electric guitars at or above the 200 series, it's clear the company is dedicated to founder Bob Taylor's promise of the continued advancement of acoustic guitars.
A top acoustic guitar for beginners, Taylor Academy Series acoustic guitars are an example of Taylor's passion for helping new players fall in love with guitar. The Taylor Academy Series acoustic guitar design is focused on playability and tone. Their hope is that beginning guitarists will find this more affordable Taylor guitar enjoyable to play, helping players improve their skills as they dedicate more time to the instrument. From campfires to concert stages, Taylor GS Mini acoustic guitars pack a ton of tone into a comfortable, portable size. Taylor GS Mini acoustic guitars are easy to play and are a great choice for advancing beginners. Inspired by the bold sound of Taylor's award-winning GS body shape, the GS Mini is designed to be the ultimate musical companion.
Among Taylor's most accessible guitars is the Baby Taylor, a great acoustic guitar for entry-level players, young guitarists and those who like to travel. This 3/4-sized acoustic guitar comes with an X-braced spruce or mahogany top, the latter of which lends a darker, earthier tone to the sound. Perfect for around the campfire or in the classroom, Baby Taylor acoustic guitars have surprisingly great sound for such a compact guitar. If you need a more versatile instrument suited for fingerpicking and medium strumming, the Taylor 214ce is certainly one worth trying. The grand auditorium body is made for all-purpose use and is definitely the most popular of the Taylor guitar shapes. The layered rosewood back and sides of the Taylor 214ce DLX Grand Auditorium create a full, well-projected sound, while its solid Sitka spruce top adds clarity.
When it comes to a novice guitar player's progress, the overall feel and sound of a well-constructed guitar can make the world of a difference. After all, by allowing a beginner to improve their craft on a guitar that's been manufactured with careful consideration towards quality and tone, the greater the chances will be that they'll continue with the instrument. You need to be sure that the guitar you're purchasing is capable of providing many years of musical satisfaction. For this, look no further than Taylor guitars.

When a budding player first picks up the guitar, they naturally want to get good as quickly as possible. Of course, it takes time, practice and dedication to master any instrument. But that shouldn't keep a novice player from feeling confident in their abilities. The great thing about Taylor guitars is that they're specifically designed to be easy on the fingers, making chords easy to construct, and the all-around musical experience more enjoyable.

In 2014, Musician's Friend interviewed Taylor Guitars' master luthier Andy Powers about guitar building. "One of the most rewarding things I hear as a guitar maker," Powers said, "is when a player comes up to me and says, 'I have this instrument that you designed. That instrument is the voice that I choose to express my music.' Music is such a deeply personal pursuit for every musician, for myself included. For a guitar player to choose one of the instruments we've built, and to find it to be the most expressive and appropriate voice for their artwork, that's just incredible."
