Sound and feel that's unique, yet quintessentially Taylor.

The Taylor SolidBody is a completely original electric guitar design that reflects the same spirit of innovation and pure love for guitar building that has propelled Bob Taylor since his humble beginnings as a luthier in 1974.

The Taylor SolidBody Standard Electric Guitar is constructed with a sapele back, flame maple inset top and a contoured single Florentine cutaway body design. The proprietary Taylor Style II open-coil humbucker pickups are designed to deliver the sweet tones of a low-output vintage pickup, but with enough power to fully drive any amp.

Other exclusive touches include the Taylor profiled 24-7/8" short scale neck with 22 frets and the ultrastable, single-bolt T-Lock neck-to-body construction; a tremolo bridge; volume and tone knobs that are specially contoured for maximum control with unique 5-way switching capabilities.

Five pickup settings with carefully chosen voicings give you a great range of tones:

1) Neck pickup

2) "Skinny neck tone"--two inside coils from both pickups wired in parallel

3) "In-between rock tone"--both coils of neck pickup combined with the inside coil of bridge pickup for classic bright single-coil tone with the added fullness of neck tone. Great for semi-distorted amp setting.

4) Fat single-coil--two inside coils from both pickups in series (north from neck and south from bridge) creating, in effect, a 4" humbucker.

5) Bridge pickup
