Taylor’s flagship rosewood/spruce series has been completely reconceived for 2014 in celebration of Taylor’s 40th anniversary year, and showcases a comprehensive array of 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 New Taylor Expression System® 2 electronics. Among the fresh aesthetic strokes are rosewood purfling that outlines the top and frames the abalone rosette; a rosewood pickguard; the new Element fretboard inlay; and a marbled ebony fretboard. Inside and out, the new 800 Series reaffirms Taylor’s ongoing commitment to improving the acoustic experience with better-playing, better-sounding guitars.
