Series Features

Solid Wood: A guitar made with a top, back and sides of solid wood will produce the most tonal complexity and become increasingly richer, more resonant, and more responsive as it ages.

V-Class Bracing: Revolutionary structural design operates like a finely engineered sonic engine. Notes are stronger, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other, producing a more musical sound.

American Made: Taylor’s state-of-the-art factory headquarters in California offers the highest levels of manufacturing sophistication and craftsmanship expertise.

Unique Details

Chamfered Edges: Smoothed edges around the body of the guitars translate into a more comfortable feel for your picking arm.
