Taylor's 200 Series guitars deliver all the essentials of a great guitar: playability, tonal clarity, and impeccable workmanship. These qualities can make all the difference to a player who is near the front end of their guitar journey, or anyone trying to progress to the next level. A solid Sitka spruce top is paired with layered rosewood back and sides. The 1-11/16 inch neck is slightly narrower than the 1-3/4-inch necks of Taylor steel-string models in the 300 Series and up. Two featured body styles include the versatile Grand Auditorium and the robust-voiced Dreadnought, with Taylor's ES-T electronics. Clean, understated appointments include white binding, a three-ring rosette, and satin-finish back and sides with a gloss top. All 200 Series models ship in a Taylor hardshell gig bag.
