As part of the company's 35th anniversary celebration, Taylor Guitars is readying the next set of what the company is calling "You Asked For It" models: guitars players have requested through the years that are first-of-a-kind for the company.

The first to be announced is the XXXV-9: a 9-string guitar that blends the best of a 6-string and a 12-string into a richly toned hybrid model, according to the company.

“The XXXV-9 takes the clarity and familiar feel of a 6-string guitar and embellishes the sound with three additional strings, two of which are paired an octave higher, to add extra sparkle to the midrange tone, ” Taylor says. The 9-string will appeal to players looking for extra shimmer without compromising the fundamental focus of the bass strings, according to the company.

The XXXV-9 features a GS body shape with Tropical mahogany back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, and Taylor’s Standard II soundboard bracing. Other appointments include a three-ring abalone rosette, a “35” anniversary logo between the 11th and 12th frets, and the company’s Expression System pickup, for plugged-in playing. Chrome mini tuners and buttons grace the rosewood peghead veneer, along with a mother-of-pearl peghead “Taylor” inlay.

The XXXV-9 comes ready to play with Elixir strings and in a hardshell Taylor case, and includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Taylor Guitars co-founders Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug.

Pricing & Availability
The XXXV-9 will be produced in an initial run of only 35 guitars and offered at a suggested retail price of $4998.

All 35th Anniversary models, including those yet-to-be announced, are expected to be available in North America in early fall and internationally late winter.
