More Fall Limited Models from Taylor
The 500 Series Limiteds (512ce-LTD, 514ce-LTD, 516ce-LTD) feature exotic koa backs and sides and a new Pipeline fretboard inlay.
Inspired by the shores of Hawaii, the Pipeline depicts a circular wave fret marker design. The models also include a 3-ring koa fishbone rosette and Indian rosewood binding. Each of the 500 Series Limiteds is topped with Sitka spruce.
Two all-mahogany electric models also join the Fall LTDs: the SolidBody Classic SB-X-LTD and the T3/B-LTD.
On the SolidBody Classic, the neck and body were milled from the same mahogany boards to create a visual match. Both models include a traditional mahogany stain and vintage alnico humbuckers. For the Classic, the humbuckers are set against a parchment pickguard, while parchment binding outlines the T3/B-LTD. A Bigsby vibrato tailpiece and brilliant chrome hardware adorn the T3 for "a look that screams electric, vintage and cool," Taylor says.
