Up until now, Taylor has been known for modern takes on acoustic tones. But, this batch of new guitars manages to convey a whole new personality to the Dreadnought and Grand Concert acoustic groups. Featuring the tone shaping control of Taylor’s award-winning V-Class bracing, they deliver well-seasoned sound, low-end power. It’s Taylor, but like you’ve never heard!
The Builder’s Edition collection shows off Taylor’s boundary-pushing pursuits. Each guitar is built to be the most player-friendly instrument, both in terms of sound and feel. And, of course, they feature that aforementioned, award-winning V-class bracing – a game-changing framework that delivers improved volume and sustain. Available with a natural finish in both the 500 and 700 series, the guitars also come in a lovely Wild Honey Burst Finish
Firstly, it’s the Grand Concert guitars is the 522e. It’s a 12-fret electro-acoustic that delivers a brilliantly bright and warm tone with bags of projection. Its NT neck design gives players a straighter and more stable instrument, offering more resistance to common problems found in regular necks. Additionally, the revolutionary Expression System 2 pickup features three independently positioned and calibrated sensors. This delivers a faithful conveyance of your guitar, whether through a PA or amplifier.

Secondly, it’s the 812ce electro-acoustic. Once again, it features that incredibly comfortable 12-fret NT neck design and the Expression System 2 electronics. Furthermore, the Grand Concert body includes a Venetian cutaway that delivers superior comfort and easy access to the upper frets.

Adding to the popular traditions of the GS-Mini social group, Taylor has introduced the GS Mini-e Bass. It’s compact, lightweight and super comfortable to play. But, just because it’s small in physical size doesn’t mean it’s petit in character. In fact, it is as much a powerful recording instrument as it is helpful in size.

Another guitar back in circulation is this Taylor 214ce Electro-acoustic guitar. Available in a sleek, black finish, this electro-acoustic guitar is built using a spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. It’s renowned for its exciting tone and comes with a barn load of high-end sparkle and midrange punch.
Finally, the Taylor 214ce-CF DLX Electro-Acoustic brings a slice of vintage styling to the Grand Auditorium guitar.
