Taylor PS12ce 12-Fret Grand Concert Honduran Rosewood/Sinker Redwood (157)
Extraordinary tonewoods adorned in our finest aesthetic appointments make the Presentation Series our richest showcase of craftsmanship detail. This year we’ve refreshed the series by pairing sinker redwood tops with backs and sides of Honduran rosewood, whose stunning musical traits have made it the ultimate wood choice for marimba bars. This variety (Dalbergia stevensonii) is harder and denser than its Brazilian and East Indian counterparts, resulting in a low damping factor that helps produce incredibly rich harmonic overtones and a gorgeously smooth, musical voice. Sinker redwood adds its own singular traits, with warmth and touch-sensitivity comparable to cedar, but with a higher volume ceiling. Together with V-Class voicing, these guitars will sing like no other.
In honor of the new tonewood pairing, Taylor master builder Andy Powers designed a new California Vine inlay suite for the series, accenting the fluid vine treatment (in sparkling paua) along the fretboard with inlays in the peghead (excluding the slot-head 12-fret model), bridge, and as an added element of ornamentation, in the rosewood pickguard. In both sound and visual appeal, these guitars are musical masterpieces.
