More About Taylor Acoustic Guitars
The projection has always been unique and an appealing instrument for all genres of music (fully defined midrange accented by strong bass and shimmering highs). However, it would be rather unlike Bob Taylor to remain satisfied with a single recipe for too long. In 2011, he hired master luthier Andy Powers to further refine Taylor’s visual and sonic aesthetic. Today, their upper echelon instruments such as the Custom Grand Auditorium are simply staggering. They have extended the sustain, focused the intonation, and amplified the overtones. Open chords sound simply ethereal, and single notes shine with an unprecedented intensity. They’ve also gravitated to earthier appointments such as wooden pick-guards and sleek, subtle armrests. Taylor also offers a Limited-Edition line that features the PS14ce 12-Fret LTD as the top of line offering.
It’s more than just steel-strings that bear the Taylor name on their headstocks, however. They offer classical, electric, and semi-hollow electrics, as well. In fact, even their acoustic guitars use a humbucking pickup in addition to soundboard transducers to achieve volume and clarity. Indeed, Taylor has long been the leader for plugged-in tone. They even have a Richie Sambora signature model! Midwood Guitar Studio is the only Independent Taylor Dealer in Charlotte, NC.
