Taylor 'Custom Catch' NAMM Exclusive 'Sitka / Figured Big Leaf Maple Black-Top' Grand Concert Acoustic Electric Guitar

Taylor are world renowned for their ability to craft beautiful guitars perfect for the working musician. With their effortless playability and stunning design, they are considered one of the very best acoustic manufacturers around. The Namm-Exclusive Custom Catch series are extremely limited, and made with only the finest cuts of hardwood, premium binding and top-notch hardware. These guitars are revealed each year at the NAMM trade show, and each Custom Catch is numbered for authenticity and available for only a limited time.

With its gorgeous figuring and bold, player-reflective voice, the hand-selected, figured Big Leaf maple that forms the back and sides of this custom Grand Concert serve up a delightful combination of visual style and sonic sophistication. A Sitka spruce top rounds out this compact custom model, which is detailed with exclusive appointments like a maple neck, faux tortoiseshell binding, a single-ring rosette in ivoroid and faux tortoiseshell, a glossy Vintage Sunburst finish for the back, sides and neck with a black top treatment, Gotoh 510 tuners in antique gold with black buttons, and bone bridge pins with a dark stain.

Includes Taylor hardshell case.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
