PG's Gayla Drake Paul guides us through her latest acoustic
review - the Taylor Baritone 8-String (found within the pages of
Premier Guitar's January 2010 issue).
As Gayla mentions, the
Baritone 8-String was created in celebration of Taylor's 35th
Anniversary as a company. The "chocolate-peanut butter" sensation
features a Sitka spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides. The
neck is made of a tropical American mahogany with an ebony fingerboard
featuring pearl diamond inlays.
It comes loaded with the
Taylor Expression System pickup and onboard bass control and it is
equipped with specially made Elixir Baritone strings.
