With Taylor’s baritone guitar design, the combination of our robust Grand Symphony body, 27-inch scale length, and B tuning (a fourth below a standard guitar) gives players an inviting platform to explore its deep, rich musical register. On this limited edition model, the pairing of blackwood and mahogany makes a winning tonewood combination because the natural tonal properties of the woods together help preserve focus and clarity, which can be harder to articulate in a guitar with a lower-register voice. For a guitar that by definition might seem to be more of a specialty instrument, its utility and versatility may surprise you. You can sing your favorite songs and hit notes that might otherwise be hard to reach — all without the need to transpose or retune. The baritone also makes a wonderful textural complement together with another guitar, allowing you to play bass parts or chord voicing variations with a pleasing mix of depth and shimmer. On this 6-string edition, players can expect plenty of warm, husky tonal character with a pleasing balance across the tonal spectrum. The appointment package falls in line with our standard 326e, including an all satin-finish body, shaded edgeburst top, and black pickguard for a dark, vintage look. And plugged in, our Expression System 2 pickup captures the baritone’s rich voicing nuances with inspiring depth and definition for live performance.
