Spring is in the air at Taylor Guitars and with that, a limited series of guitars are set to be released at price points to make each strum even sweeter. Featuring exciting and inviting Madagascar rosewood, Tasmanian blackwood and ovangkol tonewoods, each series will have players musically inspired and eager for playtime.

In the 700 Series LTDs, the rich, chocolate hues of Madagascar rosewood enchant the eyes, while the zesty, articulate highs, deep lows and ample dynamic range please the ears. Available as a 710ce-LTD, 712ce-LTD, 714ce-LTD or 716ce-LTD, this Spring Limited series offers exceptional value for a myriad of premium features. 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.

Sounding just as good as they look, 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.

Electric players will not be disappointed, as the world’s best-selling acoustic/electric hybrid, the T5, will 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.

The Spring Limiteds will be released in early April and available at Taylor dealers worldwide. Suggested retail prices for the 400 Series-LTDs start at $2,698; 700 Series-LTDs, $3,498; and the T5-LTD, $1,798.
