Taylor’s Grand Orchestra is the guitar equivalent of a grand piano, boasting a big, complex voice with a wonderfully dynamic response. Our maple/spruce edition features a back bracing profile that’s optimized for maple and a torrefied top, which produces an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance. Protein glues and an ultra-thin gloss finish minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
Martin 00-28 (2018)
Classic, compact, comfortable—great things come in small packages.
The rich sound of authentic East Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce, bound in bold herringbone with vintage appointments. Resonant scalloped bracing make natural harmonics and woody tone bloom with every note.
Taylor PS14ce African Ebony LTD V-Class (2018)
The capstone of the Taylor line, our Presentation Series was recently updated to feature back and sides of magnificent striped West African ebony from our Crelicam mill in Cameroon. On this cutaway Grand Auditorium, we’ve paired the ebony with a beautifully variegated sinker redwood top featuring new V-Class™ bracing, which bolsters the volume and sustain. The bracing also improves the guitar’s intonation, giving each fretted note more power, uniformity and harmonic agreement with other notes. All of these enhancements translate into a more musically expressive voice for players to explore. Sinker redwood blends the overtone warmth of cedar with the punchy attack of spruce, and together with the West African ebony, delivers a rich, dynamic voice capable of performing in a wide range of styles. Other luxurious features of the series include a beveled ebony armrest, our elaborate Nouveau inlay in paua and pearl, a paua rosette, paua edge trim, premium Gotoh 510 tuners, and a black graphite nut exclusive to V-Class models.
