Meet the All-New Taylor 400 Series
Taylor's all-new 400 Series acoustic guitars serve up three flavors of warm, high-fidelity tone.
Taylor 400 Series Guitars
Blending an all-star tonewood pairing with striking visual appointments, the Taylor 400 Series offers a broad range of musical utility for working musicians of all stripes. Models feature solid Indian rosewood backs and sides paired with solid Sitka spruce tops, yielding a warm low-end character, clear trebles and a slightly scooped midrange that’s ideal for playing in arrangements with vocals or other instruments. V-Class bracing inside dials up the response with louder volume, longer sustain and greater harmony between notes, drawing out more of the rich overtone character that players love in the rosewood/spruce combo. Sunburst top finishes highlight the visual package for a stage-ready presence that’s not too precious for everyday use, while the built-in ES2 electronics offer faithful plugged-in tone for amplified scenarios. Whichever model you choose, you’re sure to find a reliable partner for all your musical pursuits.
After discovering a batch of builder’s-grade Koa, Andy Powers went to work on a new line of instruments that sport an airy sound and an ultra-thin finish.
Taylor expands its koa models with these "select-grade" guitars featuring an organic aesthetic and punchy sound.
The reimagined series launches with two new guitar models: the Grand Auditorium 724ce and Grand Concert 722ce. The new all-koa 700 Series brings the koa personality to the line compared to Taylor’s existing, highly-figured Koa Series, channeling a more organic aesthetic. Taylor master builder Andy Powers designed the guitars with ultra-thin matte finish and a modified back bracing pattern, a combination that minimizes the damping effect to produce a punchier, more vibrant and player-reflective koa guitar.
- Select-grade koa: Boasts rich color variegation and straight grain structure Ultra-thin matte finish
- Feel: The thin open-pore finish creates a warm and inviting tactile sensation
- Sound: Together with slightly altered back bracing, the voicing is different from our Koa Series: a livelier, punchier, more direct response
