Taylor by Shapes
Each body's unique dimensions help define its fundamental voice. Choosing a body shape is often a good way to narrow your guitar search and find a guitar that feels right for your needs; from small and intimate to big and powerful.
Taylor by Woods
A guitar's woods – plus the design techniques of the builder – help season its overall sound. A guitar's top (or soundboard) is the first filter and generator of the amplified string sound, and as such, it has a huge impact on the sound of the guitar. The back and sides help flavour the overall sound.
Taylor by Series
These series offers premium guitars with unique aesthetic appeal, and may be inspired by any number of circumstances, from the acquisition of a rare batch of striking tonewoods to special occasions. In some cases limiteds embody the latest guitar-making ideas; in others they offer value-added models at an appealing price point. Always a showcase of inspiration, Taylor limited editions give Taylor enthusiasts a chance to own a model of great distinction that only a select group of owners will share.Shop Customs
Each set of cocobolo deemed worthy of Taylor's Presentation Series is a unique work of art, as showcased by the hardwood’s fiery hues and dramatic stripes and swirls of variegation. Exquisite craftsmanship follows every line of the guitar, as thin ribbons of sparkling paua trace the top, back, sides and fretboard. The most striking design feature is a sleek ebony armrest, which supplies a harmonious marriage of form and function, offering players a beautiful and ergonomic contour that paves the way to effortless picking and prevents unintended dampening of the soundboard.Shop Presentation

The flagship series was completely reconceived for Taylor's 40th in 2014, and showcases tonal enhancements that uniquely optimize the tone profile of each body shape. Voicing refinements include custom-calibrated bracing and wood thicknesses for each shape; protein glues that enhance the tonal transfer; thinner finish to reduce the tonal dampening on the wood; and customized string sets for the Grand Concert and Grand Auditorium. Among the fresh aesthetic strokes are rosewood purfling that outlines the top and frames the abalone rosette; a rosewood pickguard; new Element fretboard inlay; and a marbled ebony fretboard.Shop 800 Series

- Lutz spruce tops (rather than Sitka) voiced with Performance bracing produce a bold response that emphasizes a fundamental focus and gives back whatever the player puts into the guitar
- Appointments showcase a warm, earthy aesthetic led by wood-rich details, plus an optional Western Sunburst top for a rootsy Americana vibe
Taylor has applied its latest tone-enhancing design to the maple 600s for 2015; a transformation of maple's historically bright tone profile into a richer, warmer, more complex voice. Refinements include custom-calibrated bracing and wood thicknesses for each shape; protein glues that enhance the tonal transfer; thinner finish to boosts volume and responsiveness; hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain; grained ivoroid fretboard inlay motif; ebony binding with grained ivoroid body purfling; an abalone rosette edged in ebony and ivoroid; a striped ebony pickguard; and Taylor nickel tuners.Shop 600 Series
The natural compression of the mahogany top can handle the liveliest of pickers and strummers, responds well to players with a strong rhythmic attack, and because of its strong fundamental tonal character, behaves well with other instruments in a stage or recording context. Smaller-body models like the Grand Concert make a great choice for snappy blues fingerpicking, while an all-mahogany Dreadnought will hold up to rootsy flatpickers. Throwback appointments include a black pickguard, ivoroid binding, and Heritage Diamonds fretboard inlay in ivoroid. Alternative soundboard options include spruce or cedar.Shop 500 Series
For years Taylor's popular 400 Series have given players a lively, versatile musical voice that delivers a broad range of tones comparable to rosewood. New for 2015, 400s have earned a well-deserved aesthetic and performance upgrade: an all-gloss finish beautifully highlights ovangkol's golden brown colors and rich variegation, while the Expression System 2 pickup projects an amplified tone that's both dynamic and detailed. Another addition for 2015 is the deep-voiced new Grand Orchestra 418e. White binding and Italian acrylic dots supply clean, crisp counterpoints that complete the contemporary look.Shop 400 Series
The 300 Series marks the gateway to the tonal complexity of an all-solid-wood guitar experience. Sapele back and sides are topped with soundboard choices of either Sitka spruce or mahogany; the latter of which produces a slightly warmer, darker sound compared to spruce's more brilliant response. New for 2015, 300s include Expression System 2 acoustic electronics for an amplified tone that's articulate, balanced and responsive to a player's touch. Appointments include a black pickguard, Italian acrylic dot inlays and black binding with white purfling.Shop 300 Series
The 200 Series offer three core models: two steel-strings and one nylon-string, each with a cutaway and performance-ready electronics. Body styles include Grand Auditorium and Dreadnought featuring layered rosewood back and sides, solid spruce soundboards, slightly narrower 1-11/16" neck, white binding, satin-finish back and sides with a gloss top, and a Taylor hardshell gig bag. New for 2015, the 200 Deluxe Series offers more non-cutaway models, several layered wood and color options, a full-gloss body plus a Taylor hardshell case.Shop 200 Series
The 100's smooth playability, clear and balanced tone, and high-end craftsmanship is designed to lift your playing to the next level. Body styles include Grand Auditorium and Dreadnought; featuring layered sapele with a solid Sitka spruce top, slightly narrower 1-11/16" neck (1-3/4" for 300 Series and up), both cutaway and non-cutaway options, black binding, an all-matte finish and a Taylor gig bag. The 12-string Dreadnought 150e, which made a big splash in its 2014 debut, may just be the best-playing 12-string for the money.Shop 100 Series
The much loved travel-size guitar locates the sweet spot where compact design and full-voiced acoustic sound converge. The smaller Grand Symphony footprint and shorter 23-1/2" scale length deliver plenty of playing comfort, while the full-size soundhole provides a blanket of great tone. Features layered sapele back and sides with a choice of a solid spruce or mahogany top, and come pre-fitted for the easy-to-install ES-Go pickup. Both premium models come with a ES-T pickup for clear amplified tone: GS Mini-e RW (layered rosewood, solid spruce top) and GS Mini-e Koa (layered Hawaiian koa, solid koa top - new for 2015).Shop GS Mini
Big Baby & Baby Taylor
This mini-Dreadnought is a starter-size for kids and musical companion for travelers. It has been adapted in creative ways from high-stringing it to setting it up to play lap slide, to alternate tunings. The 15/16-scale Big Baby offers an affordable nearly full-size option. New for 2015, an optional Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup, which incorporates piezo design elements from the Taylor ES2. The pickup is powered by an onboard preamp which includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, along with Tone and Volume controls.Shop Big Baby & Baby
T5z, T5 & T3
Since its debut in 2005, Taylor's crafty chameleon, the T5, has been blurring the line between an amplified acoustic and electric guitar by packing a sweeping range of tones into the same instrument, from shimmering acoustic chords to wailing rock solos, with a heap of tonal flavours in between. Such fluid versatility gives gigging and recording players an inspiring tool that can switch musical gears with the flick of a switch. The T5z is a more compact take on hollowbody hybrid where as the T3 is a semi-hollow with signature Taylor design.Shop Electric Guitars
