The rarity of figured mahogany limits our use of it to limited edition models. Tonally, it shares the same properties as the more straight-grained mahogany we use, namely a fundamental focus with a strong, midrange-rich response.
Like the straight-grained sets of mahogany used in Taylor’s standard guitar line, its tone profile tends to produce a clear, warm and fundamentally strong sonic character, especially in the midrange.
Goes Well With: A broad range of players and musical styles. Blues and other rootsy players tend to respond well to mahogany’s warm midrange character. A smaller body mahogany guitar (GC or GA) might appeal to fingerstyle players, whereas more aggressive pickers and strummers might opt for a bigger body.
