Tone Academy, Nylon Style. This acoustic/electric nylon-string Grand Concert from our Academy Series may be the best nylon-string guitar you’ll find for the money. The underlying design goal of the series is to make the acoustic guitar accessible to more players by bringing Taylor’s legendary playability and tone into an affordable price range. One of the benefits of a nylon-string guitar is that the light string tension is easy on the fingertips. Another inviting feature is a built-in armrest to enhance the playing comfort. Tonally, the wood pairing of layered sapele back and sides with a solid Lutz spruce top, together with the body’s internal bracing, project a warm, mellow nylon voice with crisp percussive appeal that suits a variety of musical styles and responds well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking. The onboard ES-N pickup and preamp captures that nylon character and give you additional tone-shaping control. Whether you’re a steel-string player looking to add an affordable nylon-string to your acoustic toolbox or crave a great-sounding acoustic guitar that’s easy on the hands and the wallet, the A12e-N is an option well worth exploring.

The bass you didn't know you were looking for! Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of our GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with our friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with our patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
A rosewood by any other name... This addition to the popular GS Mini family features layered walnut back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top. Like its other Mini siblings, our modern-day parlor guitar has wowed the world with its fun-size appeal, packing a grown-up guitar voice into a scaled-down form that fits perfectly into everyday life. As active or relaxed as you want to be, having a Mini on hand is like having your songwriting muse on instant demand. And for beginners, it makes an acoustic guitar feel super-approachable. The Mini ships with a durable, lightweight hard bag, allowing you to take it anywhere. An onboard Taylor pickup also enables you to plug in and make your voice heard.
Best of all worlds! It’s fun to explore the unique sonic flavors and textures of a nylon-string guitar. The Grand Auditorium 114ce-N serves up an inviting option, blending legendary Taylor playability with clear, balanced acoustic tone. The guitar is strung with D’Addario’s Pro-Arté Carbon Hard Tension strings, which feature carbon treble strings and Dynacore composite core bass strings. These blend the musicality of a traditional gut string with a richer, louder modern voice that players will love. The guitar’s layered walnut back and sides are paired with a solid Sitka spruce top, and modern amenities include a cutaway and onboard ES-N electronics, plus a convenient gig bag for easy portability. However you plan to use it, a nylon-string guitar will make an inspiring addition to your acoustic toolbox.
This deluxe-edition 814ce takes a best-selling Taylor model to even greater heights.

This is a fantastic choice for a discerning player looking for a high-performance guitar that can cover a mix of strumming, flatpicking and fingerstyle. Premium details include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
A 12 string dream! The comfortable body size and musical versatility of Taylor’s Grand Auditorium form the foundation of a great utility 12-string guitar.

Top shelf Taylor. Among Taylor’s rosewood/spruce guitars, the 900 Series has always projected an aura of high-end sophistication, showcasing a detail-rich aesthetic and the most refined levels of Taylor craftsmanship. A lush redesign has brought a sleek and comfortable hand-carved ebony armrest to the series, along with the same sweeping array of tonal-enhancing refinements first applied to the 800 Series. On the 914ce, the Grand Auditorium’s all-around versatility has been punched up to produce a more powerful bass response and a warmer, sweeter midrange. The refreshed appointment scheme boasts a beautifully calibrated balance of ebony binding and koa purfling, together with colorful abalone shell inlays and trim. Additional features include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Don't you deserve it? Taylor’s popular 814ce offers players the ultimate all-purpose guitar. Its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. It’s a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end to the 814ce, thanks in part to the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string-gauge set. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell cas
You deserve it! On Taylor’s 12-fret Grand Concert models, the shorter neck meets the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th, and the bridge position is shifted closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is a boost in tonal warmth and power. That response is also bolstered by the Lutz spruce top used on the 700 Series. Together with rosewood back and sides, players can expect a broad and articulate tonal range. The compact Grand Concert body emphasizes clarity and balance, and helps keep the overtones in check, making this a great option for recording both solo and with other instruments. The 24-7/8-inch neck adds slinky comfort to the playing experience. Wood-rich aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while a new “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim. Taylor’s onboard ES2 electronics supply a top-notch pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.
Don't you deserve it? The 714ce sports Taylor’s popular and versatile Grand Auditorium body style and incorporates a compelling alternate take on the classic rosewood/spruce pairing, featuring Lutz spruce rather than Sitka. Together with Taylor’s Performance bracing and tone-enhancing protein glues, players can expect a bold and dynamic voice that balances rosewood’s natural overtone sparkle with a strong fundamental focus, giving this and other 700 Series guitars a rootsy musical personality with expansive musical range. That musical character is matched by an aesthetic that’s grounded in Americana style and refined with Taylor’s precision-crafted details. Rosewood’s mocha complexion is complemented with wood-rich trim, featuring Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, and a “weathered brown” pickguard design with a pattern reminiscent of leather. Modern playing amenities include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s stage-ready ES2 pickup and preamp.
