At last week's Winter NAMM show, Guitar World headed straight for the Builder's Reserve in the Taylor booth to check out Taylor's first-ever ukulele. These tenor ukes are made out of the same Hawaiian koa wood used for Taylor's guitars -- but from smaller pieces the company has been saving for years. They are designed by Taylor's Andy Powers, who has been making ukuleles since he was a little kid!
Guitar World visited the Taylor booth (It's more of a large room, actually) at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show to check out several new models, including the 700 Series Nylon. One of Taylor's themes this year is the integration of their nylon-string models with their steel-string models, and the 700 Series Nylon is a good example. The guitar shares the same appointments as Taylor's 700 series, but with nylon strings and several other classical-style touches, including the long bridge.
Taylor Guitars unveiled several lineup changes at this week's 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California. Most of the changes involve new aesthetic treatments across much of their acoustic/electric line. They've also added mahogany versions of their baritone and 12-fret models, unveiled a mahogany-top GS Mini and debuted changes to their nylon- and steel-string series.
Terms like "elegant" and “sexy” make us think of Megan Fox. Add in “semihollow” and our thoughts immediately turn to Taylor’s new T3 model, yet another gorgeous creature with which we’d like more than a few hours of playtime.
