Taylor 326e Baritone-8 2016 Limited Edition Acoustic Guitar with ES2

This fantastic blackwood/mahogany baritone 8-string invites players to experience an inspiring and versatile sonic palette that’s also surprisingly accessible. The Grand Symphony baritone is tuned from B to B, blending a husky tonal register with two additional octave strings (paired with the third and fourth strings) that add a splash of 12-string shimmer. The guitar’s lower register makes it easier to sing your favorite songs and hit notes that might otherwise be hard to reach — all without the need to transpose or retune. And if you want to play in standard tuning, simply use a 12-string capo on the fifth fret. The baritone also makes a wonderful textural complement together with another guitar, allowing you to play bass parts or chord voicing variations with a pleasing mix of depth and shimmer. The blackwood/mahogany tonewood pairing yields a smooth balance of power, articulation, and sustain. With Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 pickup, all that rich tonal character will come through without any low-end muddiness. A shaded edgeburst and all-satin finish add to the earthy, neo-vintage aesthetic personality. If you’re looking to expand your musical parameters or reinvigorate your playing or songwriting, this guitar will make an inspiring addition to your acoustic arsenal. The guitar includes a Special Edition label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
