"We’re talking original new pickups, a sleek all-aluminum bridge, fresh body design, proprietary neck-to-body construction, unique switching capabilities — the list goes on and on. Taylor’s innovative imprints are all over this guitar" it says on the Taylor website.

Got to be one of the first to play these new solidbodies last night at the Roadshow in Sacramento. Beautiful guitars with Taylor playability. A bit of a cross between a Les and a PRS without the weight of a PRS. Folks were pretty psyched to play these guitars. Word was $1200, $1800 and $2300 street for the three models. They don't have any option lists yet but will by the official launch in January. Certainly a new high end solidbody worth checking out if you are in the market...

JRoberts - Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I have also had the chance to play these guitars and I am simply amazed and can’t wait for them to be released. Totally original design; not “______ designed pickups” or “_____ designed bridge”, it’s all Taylor! Wow!
