Taylor 'Custom Catch' NAMM Exclusive 'Western Red Cedar / Indian Rosewood' Acoustic Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

This custom Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar showcases a breathtaking blend of tonewoods and exquisite craftsmanship, designed to deliver exceptional tone and visual appeal. With Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a Western red cedar top, and enhanced by Taylor’s V-Class bracing, this instrument offers a balanced sonic profile characterized by rich bass, clear trebles, and lush, resonant overtones.

The cedar top's dark-shaded color treatment accentuates its natural red hues, creating a striking visual contrast against the Indian rosewood bindings and appointments. The guitar features a suite of shell and wood details, including an Indian rosewood pickguard, beveled armrest, bridge pins, heel cap, peghead veneer, and body and soundhole bindings. The single-ring paua shell rosette, bound with rosewood, koa, and black rings, adds a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Additional aesthetic enhancements include koa and black purfling with paua shell edge trim along the top and fretboard extension, showcasing meticulous attention to detail. The instrument is adorned with a mother-of-pearl peghead logo, paua bridge inlays with a classic 900 Series design, and Gotoh 510 tuners in antique chrome, which complement the overall luxurious appearance.

Finishing touches include a full-body gloss finish for durability and a luxurious sheen, along with paua and mother-of-pearl Belle Fleur fretboard and peghead inlays that add a final flourish of artistic elegance.

Practical features include Taylor’s ES2 electronics for superb amplified sound reproduction, TaylorSense for easy maintenance monitoring, and the guitar comes complete with a deluxe hardshell case for secure storage and transportation.

In summary, this custom Taylor Grand Auditorium is not only a masterpiece in terms of craftsmanship and tonal quality but also a stunning example of aesthetic beauty, making it an ideal choice for musicians who appreciate both acoustic excellence and visual elegance in their instruments.
