Renowned acoustic builder Taylor Guitars developed and introduced a line of solid body electric guitars in 2007. Although these guitars failed to deliver the commercial success required for Taylor to continue their solid body journey beyond 2014, the range of guitars they produced during this period are regarded as superb quality instruments, as you’d expect from Taylor, and have become rather sought-after these days. Produced with flawless craftsmanship, these Taylors featured some innovative design elements from a company obviously thinking afresh about the concept of solid body electric guitars. From the single T-lock neck joint through to the purpose designed Taylor aluminium bridge, these guitars ooze precision and reliability. This example is one of Taylor’s Classic line, which features a resonant swamp ash body in an attractive trans-white finish with crushed pearl effect pic guard. The neck is maple, topped with a 22 fret rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. The guitar is loaded with a pair of Taylor Style 1 3/4 sized mini humbuckers controlled by master volume and tone controls and a 5 -way selector switch. This switch provides a range of tonal options – position 1 is full neck humbucker, position 2 splits each humbucker and runs the inside coils in parallel, position 3 selects the full neck humbucker with the inside coil of the bridge pick up, position 4 again splits both humbuckers running the inside coils in series this time, and position 5 selects the full bridge humbucker. The resultant sound palette is extremely impressive allowing the guitar to reach towards the chiming cleans you’d associate with a Strat, all the way through to overdriven dirt or crunch coming close to a full-on Gibson. It really is a very versatile guitar. Condition wise, this is a superb example with no marks or blemishes. The guitar comes complete with its original Taylor hardcase.
