Hand-Selected Woods Create Striking Looks and Balanced Tone

This Taylor baritone 8-string guitar gets its voice from premium tonewoods hand-selected for their beauty and resonance. The Lutz spruce top offers crisp articulation with sweet, ringing overtones in the high end to complement the baritone's rich lows. The figured black limba back and sides generate complex midrange tones with clear note separation even when strumming full chords. An ebony tail strip provides tonal focus, while an Indian rosewood back strip accentuates the gorgeous black limba figuring. Together these woods create a stunning look, with an artfully hand-sprayed shaded edgeburst that further highlights the natural beauty. Sustain rings true and chords bloom with vintage-inspired warmth thanks to the optimal wood pairings.
