Taylors maple/spruce Grand Auditorium acoustic electric has always been a versatile performer, and this edition boasts an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maple’s tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice. As a result, players can expect an even more dynamic and expressive musical tool. Design nuances include a maple-specific back bracing profile and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction, a method of roasting the wood to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Other touches include the use of protein glues to optimize the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
This is how the legendary pre-war Martin 00-18's looked, felt, and most importantly, sounded. Meticulously based on a 1931 model in the famed Martin museum, this guitar is handmade in the custom shop the same as they were back then.
Specs include an Adirondack top & bracing, genuine Mahogany back & sides and Madagascan Rosewood binding.
Martin's vintage tone system (VTS) and hide glue construction throughout gives this model a stunning tone that belies it's small-body stature. An absolute masterpiece, this is the first and only 00-18 Authentic in Australia.

Wow has this been worth the wait. Lowden make acoustic guitars that sound like no other and we think they are the bees knees. This is from the famous original series and is the fantastic Medium sizes 'F' Flatpicking model. The smaller soundbox shape produces more projection and midrange than the 'O' making it perfect for flat pickers, but it has also found it's way into the hands of finger style players, blues guitarists, and others. This guitar has the classic combination of Cedar soundboard, and Walnut back and sides and a Factory fitted LR Baggs Anthem pickup system. A true delight for the eyes and ears. Comes in an English Lowden branded flight case.View full product details
