The richly hued Cocobolo/Sitka spruce Fall 2008 LTDs feature beautiful three-piece Cocobolo backs with a Koa mini wedge to complement the elegant GS shape. A Cocobolo peghead backstrap adds a coordinating touch to the neck, while Koa binding and a matching Koa heel cap trace a dramatic visual counterpoint around the body and along the neck. Premium appointments include Gotoh tuners and a bone nut and saddle. Inlay-free fretboards support an aesthetic of clean lines that underscore the natural beauty of the woods and binding treatments. Each model comes with an abalone rosette, Venetian cutaway, and the Taylor Expression System® pickup. Tonal enhancements include Adirondack spruce braces (which generate more elasticity) paired with Taylor’s CV bracing scheme. Together they enhance the top movement to produce a fuller, richer and louder tone with increased dynamic range.
