Taylor's solid body electric was designed entirely from the ground up, and features their own humbuckers, bridge, tone controls and body aesthetic. Taylor's innovative building methods allowed them to revamp both the look and sound of a solid body electric, from their blend of contouring with binding, to the use of spectacular woods for tops, to their refined use of tone chambers.
The Standard Taylor Solidbody
An inset, figured Tamo ash top blends a deep golden glow with a toasted sunburst treatment. The Standard features an Ivoroid binding highlighting the sculpted armrest and cutaway. Coil-exposed Taylor Style II humbuckers unleash a huge, aggressive sound without sacrificing tonal nuances.
Taylor's aggressive Style II humbuckers
Taylor's breakthrough pickup design spawned this guitar. Vintage sweetness together with the power to drive an amp gives you the best of both worlds. Aggressive Style II humbuckers define its huge tone.
Ultra-adjustable aluminum bridge
Another fully original design, Taylor's sleek, all-aluminum bridge looks great, feels even better, and it's ultra-adjustable. Once you lock it down it holds perfect intonation no matter what, and makes those strings sing (or wail) in your hands.
Taylor's easy-playing neck
Taylor wrote the book on straight, easy-playing necks. Their innovative T-Lock neck joint brings Taylor's trademark consistency and comfort into the solid body player's hands.
Five-way picking switching and more
Tone control is the Holy Grail for an electric player. From the five-way pickup switch to the original control knobs, you are given more tone that is made easier to tweak on the fly.
