Taylor Guitars has announced the Spring Limited series of guitars, including the 400 Series-LTD, 700 Series-LTD, and T5-LTD. Featuring exciting and inviting Madagascar rosewood, Tasmanian blackwood, and ovangkol tonewoods, they are set to be released in early April and available at Taylor dealers worldwide.
The 700 Series LTDs are available as a 710ce-LTD, 712ce-LTD, 714ce-LTD, or 716ce-LTD. Each guitar is carefully crafted from a back and sides of Madagascar rosewood, a Sitka spruce top, and rosewood binding. On the inside, the series includes Taylor's proprietary CV bracing and patented relief rout for greater tonal resonance. Finished in a high gloss, the series includes the premium appointments of a Madagascar rosewood backstrap trimmed with maple and ebony, an Indian rosewood peghead overlay, along with Taylor gold tuners, and mother-of-pearl dot inlays on the fretboard.
The 400 Series Limiteds feature a honey-colored Tasmanian blackwood back and sides and are dramatically accented with creamy maple binding and mini-wedge. With a Sitka spruce top, a sparkling abalone rosette, stylish mother-of-pearl diamond fretboard inlays, and a high-gloss finish on the top, back and sides, the blackwood 400 Series Limited Edition is available as a 410ce-LTD, 412ce-LTD, 414ce-LTD or 416ce-LTD. Along with the 700 Series, the 400 Series features a sloping Venetian cutaway and Taylor's Expression System for high-fidelity plugged-in playing.
The best-selling acoustic/electric hybrid, the T5, will also be offered in a Spring Limited Edition model at an exceptionally low suggested retail price. Featuring Taylor's propriety pickups and a five-way pickup switch, the T5 offers players plenty of versatility in its range of voices. Finished in an organic, satin top of ovangkol and a body of sapele, the guitar comes ready to play in a Taylor gig bag.
Suggested retail prices for the 400 Series-LTDs start at $2,698; 700 Series-LTDs, $3,498; and the T5-LTD, $1,798.
