Florentine Cutaway

Florentine Cutaway

A Florentine cutaway comes to a sharp point, creating a horn-like shape. It is more complex and labor-intensive to craft than the Venetian because the guitar is initially built as a non-cutaway, after which a section of the treble-side upper bout is sliced out. The scooped cutaway is a separate piece of matching wood that is manually bent, fitted and glued into place, with additional trim work required to meet Taylor's high-end aesthetic standards. The Florentine cutaway is commonly used with our Grand Orchestra body style and, more recently, on Grand Symphony models in our 500 Series models and up. It's also offered as a custom cutaway option.
