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.

Martin 000-28 MV Custom
Our custom Martin 000-28 has been one of our most popular models. Featuring Antique White bindings, Golden Era style scalloped braces with 1/4" Tone bar and a slightly thinner (.105") sitka spruce top. This is one high performance guitar!
Like the 200 Series, the sapele 100 Series incorporates layered back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. It’s one of the best full-size guitars you’ll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup. It makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings

Taylor 914ce GA V-Class (2018)
Our 900 Series stands out as our most luxurious class of rosewood guitars, blending a raft of tone-enhancing details with premium aesthetic features. This acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium boasts V-Class™ bracing, which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar. Not only does it enhance the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar’s natural intonation, or “in-tuneness.” The result is more power in the upper register and more harmonic agreement between all fretted notes, which helps chord voicings sing like never before. Players who love the deep lows and sparkling highs of rosewood will appreciate how well behaved the overtones are as notes bloom. Premium features include a beveled ebony armrest that makes your picking/strumming arm more comfortable, along with Gotoh 510 tuners, whose 21:1 gear ratio allows for precise tuning. Refined appointments include ebony binding, our Ascension fretboard/peghead inlay in paua and pearl, a paua rosette with koa and ebony purfling, and paua/koa trim along much of the body and neck. All V-Class guitars feature a black graphite nut and a new guitar label that bears the signature of master guitar designer Andy Powers.
