Taylor Custom #23 GA Baritone 8 Black Limba/Lutz Spruce – Chocolate Burgundy/NAMM Instrument

Serial Number: 1202234119
Weight: 4 lbs 10 oz

With their B-to-B tuning and 27-inch scale length, our eight-string baritone guitars offer a unique playing experience matched with a strikingly deep, rich, yet sparkling voice. This custom Baritone-8 cutaway Grand Auditorium boasts back and sides of gorgeously figured black limba paired with a hand-selected Lutz spruce top, voiced with our baritone-exclusive bracing architecture. An ebony tail strip and Indian rosewood back strip complement the black limba’s complex figuring, while an artfully hand-sprayed shaded edgeburst for the back, sides and neck further accent the wood’s natural beauty. Custom details include Spiked Oval fretboard inlays in green abalone and koa, a single-ring paua rosette with rosewood/koa/black purfling and rosewood binding, paua/koa/black edge trim, a mother-of-pearl peghead logo, a rosewood peghead veneer, rosewood body binding, and rosewood bridge pins. Other appointments include Gotoh 510 mini-tuners in antique gold and a dark, rosewood-esque stain for the Lutz top. It ships with ES2 electronics, TaylorSense and a brown deluxe hardshell case.

We had the amazing opportunity to pick this guitar up at the 2024 NAMM show!
