Summer NAMM 2019: Taylor expands affordable range with new finishes and woods

New finishes on offer in the 100 and 200 ranges, while the Big Baby Taylor gets a walnut back and sides, and the Baby Taylor gets an all-koa refresh.

Taylor has launched a series of updates to its more affordable models at Summer NAMM 2019, adding new finish options and wood choices to some of its most popular guitars. 

The 200 series gets some dark overtones thanks to the black-finished 214ce-BLK DLX electro-acoustic and the all-acoustic 12-string 250-BLK DLX, both of which also sport crisp white binding and soundhole rosette – the former of which is also available left-handed.

 

Some of Taylor’s most affordable guitars have also gotten a fresh lick of paint, with the 100 Series – including the 114ce, 110ce, 150e and the nylon-string 114ce-N – getting a vintage-hued satin sunburst finish. 

The budget Big Baby Taylor has also got an update for Summer NAMM 2019, with the guitar now sporting layered walnut back and sides with a solid spruce top. It’s available in either all-acoustic or electro, with the latter sporting ES-B electronics.

Finally, the 3/4-sized Baby Taylor gets itself an all-koa makeover, with the popular travel guitar gets a solid koa top and layered koa back and sides.
