The neo-vintage appointment package includes an grained ivoroid rosette,grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay. 

FEATURES

Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Engelmann Spruce

Engelmann has a mature tone and yields a slightly richer midrange than Sitka.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
