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.
