In spite of all the precautions taken by manufacturers, few instruments are ready to be sold right out of the box. You can take peace of mind knowing that every instrument has been unboxed, set-up and tested by a professionally trained technician. This is how we are able to guarantee excellent playing condition.Solid African mahogany backs and sides and gloss-finished Sitka spruce tops provide a clear, balanced tone, while wood fiber binding, pearl fretboard inlays, and chrome Taylor tuners streamline the look. The 300 Series is a great introduction to premium-quality, American-made, solid wood guitars. A Grand Auditorium body, Venetian cutaway, and the Taylor Expression System add up to a versatile guitar that's perfect for stage and home.
