2017 Limiteds

Uniquely inspiring designs with soaring tones

Koa Series

Back/Sides: Hawaiian Koa (3-piece)
Top: Hawaiian Koa
Models: K24ce 12-Fret LTD, K24ce LTD
Koa is always in high demand at Taylor. This pair of gorgeous limited editions borrows from a design motif we introduced on a previous small-batch run, which players loved. Noteworthy details include our koa/boxwood Ocean Vine inlay, a figured maple rosette, and figured maple binding, this time featuring a three-piece koa back configuration. Choose from two all-koa Grand Auditorium models: a 12-fret and a 14-fret.

900 Series

Back/Sides: Cocobolo
Top: Sitka Spruce
Model: 914ce LTD
We’re excited to bring exotic cocobolo back into the mix with this 900 Series Grand Auditorium beauty. Beyond dressing it in our luxurious 900 Series appointments (including a beveled ebony armrest), we’ve added a smooth shaded edgeburst to the body and neck, and opted for Performance bracing to complement cocobolo’s natural bell-like tonal properies. Cocobolo lovers are sure to be seduced by this beautifully crafted instrument.

700 Series

Back/Sides: Hawaiian Koa
Top: Western Red Cedar
Models: 712ce 12-Fret LTD, 714ce 12-Fret LTD
In both the Grand Concert and Grand Auditorium body shapes, a 12-fret configuration alters the feel of the guitar by creating a more compact neck-to-body orientation and shifting the bridge back toward the center of the lower bout, which in turn changes the way the top resonates and yields a slinkier, more relaxed fretting feel. Together with the reliably comfortable Taylor neck, that makes these 700s truly a dream to play. The unique combination of a solid cedar top, koa back and sides, and the 12-fret design translates into a warm, responsive voice with impressive midrange power.

500 Series

Body: Walnut
Top: Torrefied Sitka Spruce
Model: 514ce LTD 
We’ve rarely incorporated torrefied spruce tops into our limited editions, but on this walnut/spruce Grand Auditorium, we knew it was an appropriate design touch. Walnut guitars sound wonderful once they’ve been played in, and the special roasting process we use to torrefy our spruce tops mimics the natural aging process, making the guitar more responsive to a player’s touch.

300 Series

Body: Sapele
Top: Neo-Tropical Mahogany
Model: 326e Baritone-8 LTD
Releasing our baritone guitars as limited editions gives us the flexibility to work with different wood pairings and shapes each time. This year’s limited run features an 8-string Grand Symphony crafted with sapele back and sides, a shaded edgeburst mahogany top, and our 300 Series appointments.

T5z

Body: Sapele
Top: Neo-Tropical Mahogany
Model: T5z Classic Deluxe LTD (Sonic Blue)
The hollowbody electric T5z has quickly become a Taylor favorite, winning players over with a versatile mix of amplified flavors, thanks to an innovative pickup configuration and five-way switching. For this limited release, we’ve added a touch of retro flair to the T5z Classic Deluxe with three new color options inspired by the hot rod cars and electric guitars of the 1950s. Choose from Arctic White, Sonic Blue, and Fiesta Red.

Presentation Series

Body: Striped West African Ebony
Top: Sinker Redwood
Model: PS14ce 12-Fret LTD
Our Presentation Series has always represented the pinnacle of Taylor luthiery both in materials and craftsmanship. This sublime limited edition retains the rich paua abalone inlay work of the series and introduces the visually spectacular tonewood pairing of striped West African ebony and sinker redwood. Together with the 12-fret Grand Auditorium neck/body configuration, this guitar will respond with inspiring sonic clarity, warmth and projection.
