“All the notes across the spectrum become both more powerful and sweeter with Adirondack,” says Taylor. “It has a curious elasticity which is really exploited when we use it for bracing.” The 2008 Fall Limiteds are offered in two distinct koa/cocobolo combinations; for instance, a Koa GS Limited will have exquisite, shimmering Hawaiian koa back and sides, and a mini back-wedge and binding of reddish-orange cocobolo. On a Cocobolo GS Limited, the woods are reversed, with swirling red-figured cocobolo forming the back and sides, and visual accents provided by a koa mini-wedge and koa binding. Non-cutaway Koa GS Limited and Cocobolo GS Limiteds are also available.
Taylor’s popular Grand Auditorium body shape is well-represented in the 2008 Fall Limited lineup by the Koa GA Limited and Cocobolo GA Limited, and small-bodied, non-cutaway Grand Concerts, the Koa GC Limited and Cocobolo GC Limited, are also available, with a choice of either Taylor’s classic crowned peghead, or an elegant slotted headstock.
All 2008 Fall Limited Editions have a Sitka spruce top, a cocobolo backstrap, delicate pinstripe binding along the fretboard and peghead. Appointments include Gold Gotoh tuners; bone nut and saddle and abalone top. All Taylor 2008 Fall Limiteds come with Taylor’s Expression System® pickup, for premium quality amplified acoustic sound.
Taylor is also releasing a 714ce-LTD with upgraded back and sides of Hawaiian koa, a gently sloping Venetian cutaway, and a top of Western Red cedar, for the distinctive “airy” sound and excellent note definition that fingerstylists love. Appointments include dusky Indian rosewood body binding, sparkling abalone fretboard dots, and an abalone soundhole rosette. Gold-platedtuners complete the feature upgrade for this limited edition version of one of Taylor’s most popular deluxe models. The 714ce-LTD comes with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
The Taylor 2008 Fall Limiteds and 714ce-LTD will ship in late summer.
