Three Taylor acoustic guitars

50 years’ of Taylor

50th of Taylor anniversary collection guitars

Taylor launch a family of specially appointed limited edition guitars celebrating 50 years of innovation and craftmanship.

Throughout 2024, Taylor will be releasing a curated collection of limited-edition guitars celebrating the diversity of the Taylor line.

Some guitars in the collection draw inspiration from player-favourite models over the decades, including the Grand Auditorium and 814ce. Others showcase fine tonewoods, exquisite appointments and exacting craftsmanship, like the premium Presentation Series.

An homage to our founding year, production will be limited to no more than 1,974 guitars worldwide for each model.

Models include:

Builder’s Edition 814ce LTD

An ultra-premium twist on a player-favourite BE 814ce, this limited-edition model features a sinker redwood top paired with Indian rosewood back and sides complemented by a suite of ergonomic playing features: a bevelled armrest, a bevelled cutaway, chamfered body edges and contoured Curve Wing bridge.

314ce LTD

Their popular cutaway Grand Auditorium 314ce gets premium updates in this limited-edition model: Gemstone design inlays, a tobacco shaded edgeburst, a firestripe faux tortoise pickguard and a torrefied spruce top that adds an extra splash of responsiveness and warmth to its musical personality.

AD14ce-SB LTD

The American Dream guitar takes its name from the music shop where co-founders Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug first met. The AD14ce-SB LTD follows the distilled design ethos of the series, combining workhorse versatility with earthy, neo-vintage aesthetic appeal.

PS14ce LTD – Figured Urban Ironbark / Striped Sinker Redwood

The Presentation Series showcases the finest tonewoods, appointments and craftsmanship. This exceptional version of the PS14ce LTD features a unique tonewood pairing of a figured Urban Ironbark body and a striped sinker redwood top, all finished with an elegant shaded edgeburst.

PS14ce LTD – Figured Claro Walnut / Western Red Cedar

With its figured claro walnut body, selected from Bob Taylor’s personal tonewood collection and harkening back to the earliest guitars, and a Western Red cedar top, this ultra-refined version of the PS14ce LTD caters to nuanced playing styles and more lively attacks.

PS24ce LTD – Koa

Featuring the most gorgeous and densely figured master-grade Hawaiian koa, the all-koa-bodied PS24ce LTD is embellished with sophisticated appointments, embodying the very best of Taylor craftsmanship.
