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.
A great solid-wood Martin at an affordable price. The 000RS1 is the newest addition to the successful Road Series. Constructed with sapele and equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics, this stage-ready Auditorium model produces the perfect blend of volume and balance. This model includes SUSTAINABLE WOOD CERTIFIED parts.
The acoustic/electric 314ce responds well to a wide range of playing styles thanks to Taylor’s medium-size Grand Auditorium body. Sapele shares mahogany’s lively tonal response and, together with a Sitka spruce top, rings out with a brightness and clarity that give these guitars a definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with Italian acrylic fretboard dots adding a traditional touch. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway, comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Taylor 712e 12-Fret Western Sunburst
A Western Sunburst top and slotted headstock bring refined modern-vintage appeal to this 12-fret Grand Concert, featuring Indian rosewood paired with Lutz spruce. The 12-fret’s shorter neck meets the body at the 12th fret instead of the 14th, which shifts the bridge position closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is impressive tonal warmth and power from the smaller body style. Rosewood back and sides flavor the sound with a sweeping frequency range, while Lutz spruce yields a dynamic response. The compact body emphasizes clarity and balance, and helps keep the overtones in check, making this a great option for recording both solo and with other instruments. The 24-7/8-inch neck adds slinky comfort to the playing experience. Wood-rich aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while the “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim. Taylor’s onboard ES2 electronics supply a top-notch pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.
