Taylor Guitars has released its collection of 2011 Fall Limited Edition guitars.
Anchoring the Fall LTDs are cocobolo and koa, two tonewoods with acoustic voices. Cocobolo is paired with Sitka spruce tops on two models: the GA-LTD and the GS-LTD. Additional cocobolo touches include top edge trim, and a backstrap, offset by creamy maple binding. Koa distinguishes a quartet of all-koa limiteds, which feature a shaded edgeburst around the body and neck, and bound with rosewood. The koa LTDs are offered as the GA-LTD, GS-LTD or in a pair of 12-Fret GA and GC models, and with an option of an optional Engelmann spruce top. Both the koa and cocobolo LTDs feature Taylor’s CV bracing for tone and a Venetian cutaway.
Bob Taylor and his luthiers chose a wood-rich appointment scheme, incorporating laser-cut cocobolo, koa, and boxwood into new rosette and fretboard inlay designs.The cocobolo LTDs feature a rosette of cocobolo and contrasting boxwood in an S-curve design, and a new Split Diamond fretboard inlay in boxwood. The koa LTDs also feature appointments that include a rosette motif similar to the cocobolo series, with a wood pairing of koa and boxwood. The same woods are used for Taylor’s Engraved Twist fretboard inlay.
Other models include the 400 Series and Nylon Series Limiteds. The 400 Series LTDs feature Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, with bonus appointments that include a Small Diamond fretboard inlay and gold tuners. Four models are available: a 410ce-LTD, 412ce-LTD, 414ce-LTD or 416ce-LTD. Taylor’s rosewood laminate NS24 receives a top swap to feature solid cedar. The guitars are offered either as an NS24ce or a non-cutaway NS24e.
The cocobolo, koa and rosewood 400 Series limiteds come equipped with Taylor Expression System electronics and in a hardshell case, while the nylon-string limiteds come in a hardshell bag with Taylor’s ES-N pickup.
