The Taylor Custom Sinker Rosewood-Honduran Rosewood Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar provides an unparalleled playing experience for discerning musicians. Featuring premium tonewoods and elegant aesthetics, this custom instrument is voiced to produce a balanced sound across the tonal spectrum with rich bass, clear midrange and shimmering highs.

Premium Tonewoods for Resonant Sound

The rare sinker redwood top is paired with Honduran rosewood back and sides, yielding a resonant and sustain-rich tone. The lightweight redwood top vibrates freely, projecting bright, crisp highs and midrange. The rosewood back and sides add warmth and depth, providing a balanced and versatile sound ideal for any genre or playing style.

Elegant Aesthetics Complement Superb Sound

Visually stunning cocobolo, boxwood and ebony appointments adorn this custom guitar. A single-ring rosette with a cocobolo frame surrounds the soundhole. The ebony fingerboard features an elaborate floral vine inlay made of cocobolo and boxwood. Cocobolo also accents the heel cap, tuner buttons, binding and bridge pins. These luxurious woods create an instrument as stunning to behold as it is to play.

Plug In and Amplify Your Sound

With the onboard Expression System 2, you have precise control over your amplified tone. The ES2 features three uniquely positioned pickup sensors that capture the dynamic range of your acoustic sound. You get full, natural tone whether playing acoustically or plugged in. Use the volume and tone controls to shape your sound, then send it to an amplifier or PA system for performances.

The satin-finished mahogany neck features a modified oval profile for comfort and speed. The 25-1/2" scale length and 1-3/4" nut width provide familiar feel for acoustic players. The Gotoh 510 tuners keep your instrument in tune through lively strumming or intricate fingerpicking. A deluxe hardshell case protects your investment and ensures safe transport.
