When Bob Taylor says "We really feel like the buyer of this guitar needs to be honored with something truly special," he's not kidding. Boasting detail-rich aesthetics and the most refined levels of craftsmanship, the 900 Series takes Taylor tone to the next level of great sound with customized bracing and wood thicknesses for each body shape, the use of protein glues for the bracing and bridge, and an ultra-thin (3.5 mil) gloss finish on the rosewood/spruce tonewood pairing. With an all-natural appointment package bringing together elements of the forest and ocean and a smooth fusion of wood and abalone shell trim, the 900 series is full of enhancements, but none more striking and practical than the ergonomic and beautifully hand-built ebony armrest. "These guitars should have a certain lavish feel," says Bob Taylor. "They should feel beautiful; they should feel luxurious, because they always have." Trust us. They do.
