More and more players are raving about the inspiring feel and sound of Taylor's 12-fret guitars. Once you play one, you'll understand why. The 12-fret design features a different neck-to-body relationship, resulting in an extra slinky hand feel and a surprisingly warm and powerful voice. The streaks in Black Limba are a prime example of the beauty of mother nature. Similar in tone to Brazilian Mahogany, with slightly more mids. As a guitar soundboard or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It’s used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking.
While Taylor typically offers a grand concert body style with their 12-fret models, this rare prototype is designed with a Grand Auditorium body shape. This body shape (which is the same size as the 14 models ex. 814ce) is larger than the grand concert and offers fuller tones that are much bigger and warmer.
The 12-fret design offers the easier to play feel and is matched exquisitely with the booming grand auditorium body shape.
