A single-coil version of the electric guitar as reinvented by Taylor from the ground up.
The Taylor solidbody electric guitar has arrived! Featuring original design single-coil pickups, a sleek all-aluminum bridge, fresh body design, proprietary neck-to-body construction, and unique switching capabilities, Taylor's innovative imprints are all over their Classic Electric Guitar.
The unique Taylor-designed pickups are the foundation the Taylor solid bodies are built on. The Classic is loaded with single-coil pickups featuring a new type of magnet and special winding process. The combination creates vintage single-coil sound with the power and dynamic range of modern pickups.
The swamp ash body is beveled on the back, sides and in the cutaway so you're always playing in comfort and able to easily reach the upper frets. The maple neck features the single bolt T-Lock™ neck joint that pulls the neck into the body. The simple yet ingenious jigsaw joint shape provides a set neck feel and accurate intonation.
The bridge, also Taylor-designed, is amazing smooth across the top. It looks and feels clean and classy. No exposed adjustment screws to clutter the looks or get caught on.
Even the Classic's knobs are a departure from standard fare: elegant looks with a lipped edge that allows great one-finger control. Sweaty hands? Taylor includes rubber O-ring grips that slip over the knobs.
For years, Bob Taylor was asked if they were going to build a solid body electric, and for years, the answer was no. Bob's thinking was simple: he wasn't going to build a solidbody electric unless he felt there was a real reason to. In other words, he wouldn't put the Taylor name on a guitar that was just another version of what already existed.
For this electric guitar to happen, it had to be innovative, unique and worthy of a place alongside the guitars that electric guitar players have loved for generations. When the design group at Taylor invented new pickups and Bob heard them, he knew the time had come. Starting with the pickups, each element of this solid body was designed from the ground up. The ingenuity that Bob Taylor insisted on resulted in the creation of an electric guitar that's sure to inspire and well-equipped to impress.
