Taylor Guitars' long-standing tradition of Fall Limited Editions takes a new turn in 2007, with offerings in Taylor's Acoustic and Acoustic/Electric product lines. The GS4-E-LTD expands the appeal of Bob Taylor's flagship Acoustic body style even further - it is the first-ever Grand Symphony with a satin finish. The GS4-LTD has back and sides of Tasmanian Blackwood, a wood similar in both sight and sound to Hawaiian koa. Tasteful, cream-colored binding edges the body and ebony fretboard, which is inlaid with understated mother-of-pearl dots. The GS4-E-LTD, like all Taylor Acoustics, is available with optional Expression System pickup, for high fidelity plugged-in playing.

Several of Taylor's most popular Acoustic/Electric models are receiving tonewood upgrades as 2007 Fall Limiteds.

The 914ce-LTD has back and sides of solid, gloss-finished Brazilian rosewood, one of the rarest tonewoods on earth. A Sitka spruce top on the 914ce-LTD enhances the Brazilian rosewood's extended tonal palette for a signature sound with strong bass, clear midrange, and ringing high frequencies. In keeping with Taylor's 900 Series accoutrements, a bone nut and saddle, gold Gotoh tuners, and the distinctive 900 Series fingerboard inlay decorate the 914ce-LTD.

Stunning "fiddleback" walnut lends its characteristically warm sound to Taylor's 814ce-LTD; blonde maple binding contrasts beautifully with its glossy, highly figured solid walnut back and sides. A Sitka top helps create a satisfying well of resonance, and Taylor's abalone 800 Series fretboard inlay
pattern completes the picture of a guitar built for the connoisseur.

For those who prefer Indian rosewood, the 410ce-LTD and 414ce-LTD have backs and sides of rich-sounding, satin-finished solid Indian rosewood, with solid Sitka spruce tops. The rosewood upgrade and mother-of-pearl diamond fretboard inlays bring a new sense of sophistication to these well-loved Taylor classics.

All Acoustic/Electric 2007 Fall Limited Editions feature Venetian cutaways, and Taylor's Expression System, for the highest quality amplified reproduction of each tonewood combination and body style. All Taylor 2007 Fall Limited Editions will ship in late summer/early fall.
