Taylor 900 Series
About Taylor 900 Series Guitars
While every Taylor guitar lives up to some pretty high standards, if you're looking for the best of the best, the Taylor 900 Series is second only to the Presentation Series. These guitars sit at the top of Taylor's rosewood/spruce line, with Sitka spruce tops over Indian rosewood backs and sides. To dial up the sophistication one more notch, they've also added koa purfling and abalone top trim that pack a real visual punch.
One of the most distinctive features of the Taylor 900 series, inherited from the Presentation Series, is the contoured ebony armrest found on most models, which softens the edge of the guitar's shoulder to make it even more comfortable to play. Plus, since it lifts your arm off the side, it helps improve the resonance so the instrument doesn't just feel better, it sounds better, too. It should also go without saying that the fit and finish of the 900 Series is top-notch. The woods are cut to thicknesses tailored for each body shape, protein glues are used on the bracing and bridge, and with Gotoh Gold tuners and Taylor's own Expression System 2 electronics, the finishing touches are second to none.
There are a few different body shapes to choose from, including the Taylor 900 Series 914ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar and the 916ce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Or, if you want something even more special, check out the High Performance Package versions of those two models. They refine the instrument even further with Adirondack spruce bracing and a bone nut. No matter which Taylor 900 Series guitar you choose, you can't go wrong: these are all world-class instruments.
