PS14ce 12-Fret LTD

Within our guitar line, our Presentation Series stands out as the paragon of Taylor luthiery. This limited edition 12-fret Grand Auditorium showcases those same top-tier aesthetic virtues with the breathtaking pairing of striped West African ebony, sourced from Taylor’s Crelicam ebony mill in Cameroon, with richly variegated sinker redwood. The tight-grained redwood tops were sliced from old-growth logs reclaimed from the bottom of a California river, whose mineral-rich river bed infused the wood with an array of color hues. Sonically, redwood blends the warm overtone complexity of cedar with the attacking power of spruce, while ebony yields some of rosewood’s bell-like fidelity but with the more linear output of maple. The magic here is in the fusion of these tonal nuances with a 12-fret Grand Auditorium body. Players can expect a warm, balanced response that packs an extra punch with the help of the redwood top and the 12-fret’s shifted bridge location. The guitar is detailed with our finest Presentation Series appointments, including ebony binding with a beveled ebony armrest, elaborate Nouveau paua inlays and edge trim, and gold Gotoh tuners with a 21:1 tuning ratio for maximum precision. The guitar comes equipped with Expression System® 2 electronics and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
