Price: $3,998 US MSRP / Series: Baritone

A truly unique voice, the Baritone 8-String complements the lower tonal range by pairing two octave strings with the third and fourth strings, adding a touch of upper-octave brightness without too much 12-string jangle. The result is a guitar with incredible tonal range, perfect for walking basslines and rich melodies. All Taylor baritones feature a GS body and are tuned to B with a longer 27-inch scale length, which maintains normal string tension. Two wood combinations are available for the 8-String: either Indian rosewood or mahogany, with a Sitka spruce top.
