Solid Wood Sweetness
Every guitar player deserves to experience the magic of a well-built acoustic guitar made out of all solid wood. All-solid guitars are just different. They’re supremely resonant, they respond to your touch faithfully, and they speak expressively with rich, colorful voices. Playing one is a revelatory experience that we want to share, and that’s why we love Taylor’s 300 series so much! It offers guitar pickers a chance to own a precision-built solid-wood guitar with top-notch fit and finish, supreme playability, and huge resonance at an unbelievable value.
Within the 300 series, there are two potential combinations of tonewood at your fingertips: Sitka spruce and sapele or mahogany and sapele. The spruce-topped guitars (which have model numbers beginning with “31”) present a fresh and exciting spin on a classic tonewood combo. Sitka spruce is the most popular tonewood for a reason: it’s articulate and clear, and it has a good balance of focused fundamental and rich overtone response. Sapele is similar to mahogany in that it is warm, round, and punchy-sounding. However, it has a bit more bite, and bit more top-end sparkle . Together, these two woods produce a sunny, midrange-forward sound with satisfying low-end and delightful treble chime.
