Taylor Builder's Reserve BR-VI: This Builder’s Reserve offering celebrates Taylor’s “vintage” era with a tribute to the classic Jumbo 12-string. The Taylor design team began by revisiting the original Jumbo shape, which features a full 17-inch body width across the lower bout. Additional retro touches include early 800 Series appointments like small diamond mother-of-pearl fretboard inlays, an abalone triple-ring rosette, and of course, the unmistakable bridge, which features camel bone bridge pins with abalone dots. Gold Gotoh 510 tuners tastefully complete the throwback aesthetic. From the legendary Taylor wood reserves were selected some of the finest sets of figured Hawaiian Koa for the back and sides, outlined with crisp white binding. A Sitka spruce top bolsters Koa’s shimmering tonal response with the help of Adirondack spruce bracing. With modern design features like the NT® neck and Expression System® electronics, this guitar artfully embodies the company’s progression from its homespun early days to the latest performance-enhancing innovations. The tastefully designed and brilliantly executed Koa en-cased amp is included in this pairing.
