Our admiration for Taylor Guitars never ceases, especially when special edition models arrive! The Taylor 360e and 326e both tickle our fancy with their extensive attention to detail and seemless combination of woods to create a clear and resonant sound for a variety of musical styles. Watch the video above as Guitarist Magazine runs through these two guitars to give you a closer look at Taylor’s latest guitars to grace our site!
While most Taylor 12-strings feature our Grand Symphony body style, this special edition Dreadnought 12-string offers players a uniquely compelling sound to explore. The Dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with a powerful lower register, which adds authority to the 12-string’s shimmering character. The sapele/mahogany wood pairing yields a clear, woody and dry midrange that’s emphasized with the mahogany top. The mahogany also helps unify the volume balance across the tonal spectrum. Players can expect an exceptionally clear and powerful 12-string sound with smooth string-to-string balance. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 electronics bring all that acoustic detail into a dynamic amplified sound for performance and recording. Earthy, neo-vintage aesthetic touches include a shaded edgeburst, satin finish, and black pickguard.
The acoustic/electric 326e features Taylor’s Grand Symphony body shape, which yields a powerful voice characterized by a deep bass, thick treble notes, and impressive volume and sustain. The mahogany top will emphasize the fundamental notes and bring extra clarity and focus to the overall tone. Sapele’s natural treble brightness is balanced by the bigger body’s tonal output, making the guitar a robust strummer and lively flatpicker with broad dynamic range. Appointments include black binding, a black pickguard, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
