Exclamation Taylor @ LA Guitar Sales, Top 10 Online & Premier Showroom Dealer

Hey folks!

As one of Taylor Guitars Top Online, and Premier Showroom dealers, we have access to all the latest goings on in El Cajon, so I decided to start a dedicated thread here for Taylor enthusiasts. With NAMM 2016 less than two weeks out, you can bet there will be some big news from Taylor, including some new models, and new custom options that folks have been asking for, but in truth, there is something new all year. I will of course share this info with you as soon as I am allowed.

In 2016, we plan to spec some exclusive custom runs with Taylor, much the same way we've been doing with Martin over the years. I will be soliciting suggestions from you regarding this project, so let me know what you would like to see. Specs, price point and so on. Look to this thread for updates on that.

Customs, customs, customs. Yes, we still specialize in custom Taylors, in fact we just got in a batch of customs that were spec'd out at the factory, where we were able hand select all the wood sets. We plan to continue our visits to the Taylor factory in 2016, not only to hand pick wood sets, but see all the exciting things they are working on.

With an average one hundred plus Taylor Guitars in stock at any given time, few Taylor dealers have the kind of inventory we do, but if you don't see what you are looking for, please contact me and I will get it for you. And don't worry, although we already have the most competitive Taylor pricing in the industry, if you've been quoted a lower price, give me a call, I will not only try to match the price, but beat it. Simply put, there is no better source for Taylor Guitars than LA Guitar Sales.

This thread is open for discussion, so feel free to post your questions here, or if you prefer, feel free to contact me direct.

Thank you, and here's to a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year to all.

I've purchased many guitars and several Taylors from Ted and Helene over the years and will attest to great service, prices, and product. If Ted can't make you happy then no one can....

Thanks, Randy. We've had a great relationship with Taylor over the years, and we hope to continue that in 2016.

With dozens of new models on the way, we are liquidating a few older, discontinued models, like our last pre 2015 614ce, an early 2012 714ce with Engelmann top, and all pre 2016 Limited Editions.

All these guitars are mint with deluxe Taylor case and full warranty. Call 310.246.1933 if you are interested in any of them and we will make you a deal you wont be able to resist.

Hey folks.

We just came back from winter NAMM where we were able to play all the new models, all of which you can order now. And BTW, we attended the Taylor pre-NAMM custom show and were able to snag a few one off customs featuring off menu options. You will see these guitars on our Taylor Custom section in about a week.

Here are the new models:

New 12-String Shapes
Taylor adds to a rich heritage of easy-playing 12-strings with an inspiring mix of models in all five Taylor body styles, including the debut of Grand Concert 12-Fret and Grand Orchestra options.

Grand Concert 12-Fret
A small-body 12-string offers a comfortable option to players who find a bigger body unwieldy. Standout traits include a slinky handfeel and responsiveness, along with surprising tonal power, depth and warmth for a small body. The sonic focus and detail are ideal for recording or performance because the voice will fit cleanly into a mix.

Models:
• Mahogany/Cedar 552ce 12-Fret
• All-Mahogany 562ce 12-Fret

Grand Orchestra
New bracing helps Taylor’s largest and deepest body style unleash a massively rich and powerful 12-string sound. If you’re a lively strummer craving a lush, "wall-of-sound" voice, try a Grand Orchestra 12-string.
Models:
• Rosewood/Sitka Spruce 858e
• Ovangkol/Sitka Spruce 458e

Dreadnought
The Dread’s slightly broader waist helps bring out the lower midrange frequencies. On a 12-string, it generates thick, husky midrange power that complements the crispness and shimmer of the octave strings.
Models:
• Blackwood/Mahogany 360e
• Layered Sapele/Solid Sitka Spruce 150e

Grand Auditorium
The comfortable body size and musical versatility of the Grand Auditorium form the foundation of a great utility 12-string guitar.
Models:
• Layered Rosewood/Solid Sitka Spruce 254ce-DLX

Grand Symphony
The workhorse shape of Taylor’s 12-string family produces a rich and resonant low end, crisp octave shimmer, and an even balance from lows to highs. Players will love the blend of power and articulation.
Models:
• 300 through Presentation Series
 
12-Fret Revival
Taylor’s modern take on the 12-fret guitar has captivated players with a slinky hand feel and surprisingly powerful response for the smaller Grand Concert body, due to the different neck configuration and bridge location. The growing appeal has inspired new designs in the 300 Series, plus a pair of amazing 12-string/12-fret 500 Series models.
New 12-Fret Models:
• Sapele/Spruce 312e/ce 12-Fret
• Blackwood/Mahogany 322e/ce 12-Fret
• Mahogany/Cedar 512e/ce 12-Fret
• Mahogany/Cedar 552e/ce 12-Fret (12-String)
• All-Mahogany 522e/ce 12-Fret
• All-Mahogany 562e/ce 12-Fret (12-String)

The Redesigned 500 Series
Following the revoicing of Taylor’s 600, 800 and 900 Series, the 500 Series gets its turn, sporting new Performance bracing that yields stronger, richer tone. Other new additions to the 500 Series include:
• Lutz spruce on spruce-top Grand Symphony (516ce) and Dreadnought (510e) models. Lutz is a hybrid blend of Sitka and White spruce that produces a sonic horsepower comparable to Adirondack.
• Dreadnoughts that feature a 24-7/8-inch scale length, V-carve neck, and slotted headstock. These include the Lutz spruce-top 510e and all-mahogany 520e.
• Aesthetic upgrades: faux tortoise shell binding with matching rosette and pickguard (mahogany-top models are pickguard-free), and shaded edgeburst body and neck on mahogany-top models.

Blackwood 300 Series
Tasmanian blackwood joins sapele within the 300 Series, making two tonewood pairing options available: blackwood with mahogany tops, or sapele with Sitka spruce tops.
Blackwood’s tone profile: Strong midrange focus — dry and clear yet warm, like mahogany and koa — with a splash of top-end shimmer and richness similar to rose wood. Its musicality suits a variety of body sizes and musical styles.

ES2 on Most Layered Wood Models
This year the Expression System® 2 is the standard pickup on most Taylor acoustic/electric steel-string guitars, now including GS Mini, 100, 200 and 200 Deluxe models.

Two gorgeous Macassar/Sinker combos, one a GA and the other a GS. I'll have full specs as soon as everyone gets back from NAMM, and the guitars a few days after that.

To me, Macassar/Sinker, and Taylor are a match made in heaven, and given that sinker is totally off the menu now, I was quite happy to land these two guitars.

I also grabbed two Maple GC 12-fret customs with the new bracing. These can now be ordered anytime, but why wait ten weeks.

These are two of the one off Taylor customs we brought back from the special, pre NAMM Taylor event. These guitars cannot be duplicated, so this will be the only chance for them.

Call me with any questions - 310.246.1933

Just received the new revoiced 500 series models as well as the 400, and 800 series GO 12-Strings. Here's the all Mahogany 12-Fret with edge burst finish. Not that long ago you would have needed to go custom to get thee specs.

Ok, so this was one of the most G.A.S. inducing guitars of the entire NAMM, a 12-Fret, 12-String Grand Concert! Honestly, I could hardly put this little beauty down today. Call me for a great deal and get one in your hands.
