NAMM '10 - Taylor Dave Matthews Signature & More

February 10, 2010
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where he visits the Taylor Guitars booth. In this segment, we get introduced to several new products that will be released fully for Taylor during 2010.

First up, the 8-string baritone, which has a truly unique voice, the 8-string baritone GS complements the baritones lower tonal range by pairing two octave strings with the third and fourth strings, adding a touch of upper-octave brightness without too much 12-string jangle. The result is a guitar with incredible tonal range, perfect for walking basslines and rich melodies. It features a solid Sitka spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides.

Next, we get to check out the Jason Mraz Signature Nylon model and the Dave Matthews Signature 914ce custom model with "Grux" inspired inlays.

Lastly, we get to check out some offerings from the Taylor Build to Order section. These guitars are one-off creations built by the Taylor upon request from direct buyers through the website or for dealers who wish to keep some BTO models in their stores.

Video Review - Taylor Baritone 8-String

December 16, 2009
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.
