The Taylor Custom Shop Music Zoo 25th Anniversary Acoustic is an uber versatile work of art!
In honor of The Music Zoo's 25th Anniversary, we've teamed up with our good friends at Taylor Guitars to create a very special Taylor Custom Shop Grand Auditorium Blackheart Sassafras and Lutz Spruce guitar! This limited edition model sports hand-picked tonewoods, and some very special appointments denoting Taylor's collaboration with us.

Taylor Custom Shop Grand Auditorium Music Zoo 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Acoustic Guitar Tone
The Custom Grand Auditorium's Grand Auditorium body style also helps to really define each note you play. Everything from fingerpicking to heavy strumming will shine with the Grand Auditorium which is why this guitar is so versatile. The Sassafras also provides a nice mixture of warm bottom-end that is tight and focused, while also bringing along a shimmering treble sparkle.
Taylor Custom Shop Grand Auditorium Music Zoo 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Acoustic Guitar Feel
The Taylor Custom Shop Grand Auditorium Music Zoo 25th Anniversary guitar features the width and depth of the Dreadnought with a slightly narrowed waist. This gives Grand Auditorium a bit more treble and a more significant feel when playing seated. The neck is very comfortable, and makes playing chords and individual notes an easy task.
Why We Like It
This model is stunning to look at! The combination of tonewoods and elegance of the Auditorium body-style brings this beauty to life. Its appearance is in no way overbearing, and is undoubtedly Taylor. We totally dig the clean look of the West African Ebony fretboard, and the contrast of the Lutz Spruce top. Other appointments are on the dark side as well, with satin black tuners to match the natural brown and black motifs.
