    The Limited Edition 8-String Baritone from Taylor Guitars! This guitar will open up a whole new sonic planet for you to explore! Really great guitar for men who sing and have difficulty finding their key in standard tuning.

    Besides the deep and sweet husky lower register of a Baritone (tuned B to B), the Taylor 326e Baritone-8 SEB has an additional two octave strings on the D and G string to give you a little 12-String sparkle in the mids! Every player needs something special like this in their quiver for solo shows, studio work and most definitely for wooing your significant other. It's affordable too!

    This fantastic Taylor Blackwood/Mahogany Baritone 8-string Limited Edition invites players to experience an inspiring and versatile sonic palette that’s also surprisingly accessible. 

    The Grand Symphony baritone is tuned from B to B, blending a husky tonal register with two additional octave strings (paired with the third and fourth strings) that add a splash of 12-string shimmer. 

    The guitar’s lower register makes it easier to sing your favorite songs and hit notes that might otherwise be hard to reach — all without the need to transpose or retune. And if you want to play in standard tuning, simply use a 12-string capo on the fifth fret. 

    The baritone also makes a wonderful textural complement together with another guitar, allowing you to play bass parts or chord voicing variations with a pleasing mix of depth and shimmer. The Blackwood/Mahogany tonewood pairing yields a smooth balance of power, articulation, and sustain. 

    With Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 pickup, all that rich tonal character will come through without any low-end muddiness. A shaded edgeburst and all-satin finish add to the earthy, neo-vintage aesthetic personality. 

    If you’re looking to expand your musical parameters or reinvigorate your playing or songwriting, this guitar will make an inspiring addition to your acoustic arsenal. The guitar includes a Special Edition label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case. 

    Taylor’s baritone guitars produce a husky voice (tuned to B) with loads of warmth, low-end richness, midrange growl, and treble presence. The lower register will appeal to singers with a lower vocal range, and the guitar’s voice adds a complementary acoustic texture for weaving bass lines with another acoustic guitar in a duo setting. 

    The mahogany top on this Special Edition baritone Grand Symphony evens out the dark, woody, warm character on the low end for a pleasantly balanced response. If you crave a fresh tonal palette to reinvigorate your playing or songwriting, this will make a great addition to your acoustic arsenal.

     A shaded edgeburst adds extra vintage appeal to the rich-grained mahogany top. Taylor’s natural-sounding Expression System® 2 pickup will capture that rich baritone depth for live settings.

    Non-cutaway Baritone 8-String Grand Symphony features solid Blackwood back/ sides, solid Mahogany top with shaded edgeburst, 27-inch scale length, and standard 300 Series appointments: Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, black binding, white/black top purfling, 3-ring rosette, all-satin body, Taylor nickel tuners, and Expression System® 2 pickup.
