Taylor Baritone 8-String Guitar

29 January 2010 Leave a comment

Taylor Baritone 8-String BridgeContinuing their trend of releasing guitars with slightly unusual numbers of strings, Taylor have introduced the Baritone 8-String.

With Taylor’s GS (Grand Symphony) body shape and a long scale length of 27 inches, the addition of two octave strings on the third and forth strings provides a smattering of upper-register sparkle without straying too far into all-out, 12-string jingle-jangle territory.

The Baritone 8-String has Taylor’s Expression system built in for amplification duties.  The body top is sitka spruce and the back and sides are solid, Indian rosewood.  A Venetian cutaway is standard.

Pearl diamond inlays sit in an ebony fretboard.  The neck is mahogany.  Ebony is also used for the bridge and, as you’d expect, the saddle is a proper bone one (and as you can see it’s shaped and compensated for the extra octave strings).
