A Wild Honey Burst top and low-sheen finish heighten the old-soul aesthetic appeal of this guitar. The round-shoulder dreadnought shape, featuring V-Class bracing, produces warm, seasoned acoustic tone in which individual notes overlap and blend smoothly together, while the low-end power common among dreadnoughts boasts greater clarity here. Together with rosewood’s harmonic complexity and the played-in sound of the torrefied spruce top, players can expect rich, luxurious tonal character from top to bottom.
  • This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavour of warm, rich Taylor tone
  • The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles
  • Popular, traditional, and versatile; Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever
  • V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation
