The Builder’s Edition Collection
Each guitar in the Builder’s Edition family represents the peak of Taylor’s design philosophy: comfortable, inviting guitars with rich, robust tone and stunning aesthetics.
The Builder’s Edition Philosophy
Builder’s Edition guitars are crafted to deliver exceptional tonal quality. Subtle modifications to body shapes, tone-enhancing interior bracing, top-tier tonewoods and other voicing tweaks add up to sophisticated, complex tone profiles that transcend the boundaries around genres, playing styles and musical applications.
A guitar can only sound as good as it feels in the player’s hands. With innovative design elements such as beveled armrests, modified cutaways, chamfered edges and subtly altered neck profiles, Builder’s Edition guitars elevate the bond between musician and instrument.
Builder's Edition 814ce
A four-piece Adirondack spruce top, beveled armrest and cutaway, and stunning gloss-finish body headline the evolution of our flagship Grand Auditorium guitar.
Builder’s Edition 324ce
Crafted with Urban Ash™, this versatile guitar marries our passions for musical expression and environmental stewardship. We’re thrilled to introduce a tonewood we love that also supports urban forest management.
Builder’s Edition 816ce
V-Class bracing and an innovative soundport transform this redesigned Grand Symphony into an orchestral instrument capable of high-fidelity, room-filling sound.

Builder’s Edition 652ce

Builder’s Edition K14ce
Our original Builder’s Edition guitar, featuring gorgeous Hawaiian koa paired with torrefied Sitka spruce, remains a champion of the line, blending elegant organic beauty with an inviting handfeel that promises new musical discoveries.
Builder’s Edition 517
One of two models to introduce our Grand Pacific body style, the mahogany/torrefied spruce Builder’s Edition 517 channels the warmth and power of classic mahogany dreadnoughts in a whole new way with the help of V-Class bracing and player-friendly contouring.
Builder’s Edition 717
Inspired by acoustic recordings from decades ago, this rosewood Grand Pacific revitalizes the dreadnought body shape with exceptional tonal clarity, complexity and power. Playing this guitar feels like getting together with an old friend.
Our revolutionary new sonic engine powers each Builder’s Edition guitar, reshaping the sound to produce more volume and sustain, with notes that are more in tune from top to bottom.
