*FOR COLLECTOR’S:  Comes with Collector’s Kit - includes original factory shipping box, Taylor’s “Wood & Steel” magazine introducing this limited edition series.

All of the guitars in this series comes from a single tree which yielded 300 beautifully unique sets.

“Wide swaths of sapwood conjure a yin-yang effect of darkness and light, while fluid edge lines band the book-matched symmetry into captivating abstract art. “

“Tonally, it shares a little of Macassar’s low-end damping factor.  Macassar has a pretty clear sound while also being fairly overtone-heavy.  This African ebony has a ringing character with a linear quality across the tonal spectrum - no particular frequencies are accentuated over others.”

To match the ebony’s sonic characteristics, Taylor chose European spruce tops with Adirondack spruce bracing.

“We wanted to make these guitars sound really luxurious and rich.  European spruce has a strong attack with big headroom, but also with rich overtones.  It produces thick, wide notes.  Paired with the ebony, which also generates essentially the same effect, you’ll hear really rich, saturated notes.
