|Our Taylor collection - could be yours!|
Along with the innovation of various models and tone woods used, Bob Taylor himself has bought the last remaining Ebony farms to aid in the reproduction of these trees since they are close to extinction. Bob didn’t stop at Ebony trees though; he continued to cultivate farms worldwide that include Rosewood, Mahogany, Cedar and more.
Throughout the past five years, Bob has been reinventing each model of guitar to improve the quality and tone. One of the most unique tones that have come from remodelling is the Taylor 600 series of acoustic guitars. Maple guitars are generally known for their brightness, but this standard maple guitar now has its own exclusive sound of warmth and treble due to the new bracing situated inside the 600 series instrument.
Taylor Guitars are professional, hand-crafted instruments and we at Music Spot are proud advocates of this brand. We have our very own Taylor 614CE at our Browns Plains superstore, just waiting for you to come check it out.
Or if you are already familiar with the fine quality of Taylor guitars, you can shop from the comfort of your own home. On our website we have several quality offerings listed.
