Taylor 516e LTD Baritone

Taylor baritone guitars are designed for playing in a lower register with normal string tension, thanks to a longer 27-inch scale length. Tuned to B (B E A D F# B), the deeper acoustic tone is voiced with the GS body shape and a wood combination of Bearclaw Sitka Spruce & Quilted Sapele. The deeper tonal voice will appeal to singer-songwriters and other players who favor playing in a lower register. The baritone also blends well with other instruments, adding a different sonic texture to create a rich, ensemble sound.

Sitka Spruce is one of the most popular tonewoods ever used on guitars. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch.

Sapele is similar both visually and tonally to dense mahogany, but both darker and harder, giving it a strong visual presence and a bit more upper harmonic content and low-end clarity. It’s a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle. Very similar to mahogany, but slightly brighter, with a little extra treble zing and more sparkle and depth.

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ no wear or tear to mention. This Guitar recently had a Plek Job and Setup professionally done at Glaser Instruments in Nashville TN.
