Sapele is similar to the lively tonal response of mahogany and, together with a glossy Sitka spruce top, adds a brightness and clarity that give these guitars the definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with large pearl fretboard dots adding a traditional touch. West African Sapele is a tonewood that Taylor has used for more than a decade. It’s sometimes mistakenly referred to as African mahogany, because it closely resembles the West African wood khaya, which is commercially known as African mahogany. Sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. The ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer. Preamp design and tone controls were customized to complement the nylon-string voice. Standard ES control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic.
