Taylor Builder's Reserve VII ES · Acoustic Guitar

When you play an instrument made entirely of mahogany, it feels like you've met an old friend - that's all the warmth and familiarity, and the conversation quickly evolves as an easy and lively dialogue.

With this seventh offer from our Builder's Reserve program, we are fully aware of the musical talent of the mahogany wood with a 12-fret guitar and our first tenor ukulele made fully with mahogany. The mahogany top brings out all the sound of the wood, combining warm sound with a powerful attack. "Both instruments offer great sound dynamics, " describes the guitar builder Andy Powers from Taylor. "Both of these beautiful, balanced sound and tone characteristics are inherent and they have a rather large sound volume. I've tried the ukulele in the sales room, and a customer came in, thinking I'd put a pickup in the instrument. "Andy says it's the warmth of the mahogany wood that gives the sound, its gentle character. "This wood does not give an exotic, unusual or even alienated sound, but a well-known and easily catchy one, " he says. "The 12-fret guitar is particularly suitable for direct finger picking. With this style of playing, especially old ragtime, blues, Hawaiian sounds and similar genres come to the fore. One might first think this is a classic blues guitar. This is true, but there is more to this instrument. Since the sound is so pleasing, the instrument is suitable in principle for all musical directions. In particular, these two instruments unfold a beautiful sound. Both sound as familiar as if they had been there for years and years. "As with the combined Builder's Reserve offer from the beginning of this year, this combination of full-mahogany variants also ensured that the decorations match each other. In this case, the instruments are held in an understatement vintage look, with Ivoroid Frets and inlays inn ivory optics and the classic sunburst motif.

All Builder's Reserve VII guitars/ukulele pairs have an individual instrument label and are offered as a matched pair. This edition is limited to fifty pairs.

Taylor Builder's Reserve
Through the Builder’s Reserve series, Taylor tap their private wood reserves to craft small batches of unique, detail-rich instruments. Typically the wood sets selected are available in extremely limited quantities — even more so than Taylor's other seasonal limited editions — and the guitars they inspire demand an extraordinary level of craftsmanship. Several years ago Taylor started with a SolidBody Classic made from burled Bastogne walnut, followed by a run of 50 Liberty Tree T5 models featuring tops made of the remaining wood from a historic tree. For 2012 Taylor Guitars rekindles the spirit of super-premium, handmade craftsmanship that sets Builder’s Reserve apart with two groundbreaking Taylor offerings: an acoustic amp and a tenor ukulele, each paired with a fantastic companion guitar. For each quarter in 2012, a fresh batch of pairings will be released, each featuring a unique design aesthetic.
