It’s been a while since Taylor Guitars release Limited Edition guitars. This time round, the four models are spread across different series.
The ultra lavish 914ce gets sassafras back and sides for this limited edition. Add that to the gorgeous ebony armrest, ebony bindings and gold Gotoh 510s, this is a truly flamboyant and luxurious guitar.
The new 700 series introduced in 2016 distinguished itself with Lutz top and Taylor has now introduced a 12-string.
The GC body seems to be quite low-key in this part of the world so it remains to be seen if this one will reach us.
410e Baritone-6 LTD
The 410e Baritone sports an ovangkol body matched with spruce top. The 27 inch scale (B to B) gives a deeper tone, so perhaps the shaded burst top suits this guitar.
The re-worked 300 series introduced Australian Blackwood into the range but this time it is paired with the more popular spruce top for more punch. Only this time, Taylor has used Lutz instead of the usual Sitka variant.
Nice looking “twisted ovals” fingerboard inlays found on this one. This seems like the guitar that 300 series buyers would have been asking for.
