Taylor Acoustic Guitars in Leeds

The selection of Taylor guitars is a particular highlight among the range. Taylor is undoubtedly one of the most respected, prestigious and desirable brands of acoustic guitar in the business. Applying cutting edge technology to boutique guitar techniques, their instruments are innovative, of astonishing quality and unparalleled consistency. Here are some of the lovely Taylor acoustic guitars in Leeds right now…

Taylor T5 S1

Taylor T5-S1

The Taylor T5-S1 is an apt demonstration of the brand’s commitment to innovation. The guitar is devised as a hybrid, acoustic/ electric guitar, which is capable of providing the guitar tones of both. This particular model has a stunning, natural flame maple top, with Sample back, sides and neck and a classic ebony fretboard. A stacked humbucker bridge pickup, and neck pickup are combined with T5 dynamic body sensors, to give a true ‘best of both worlds’ performance.

Taylor 614ce

Taylor 614CE

Is this the prettiest acoustic guitar in Leeds? Well, only you can make that call, but it’s certainly a strong contender… The Taylor 614CE is a Grand Auditorium sized guitar with a Venetian cutaway, which sits somewhere between a Dreadnought and a Grand Concert. This makes it a great, versatile guitar for a wide variety of styles, whether that is strumming, flatpicking of fingerstyle.

The guitar is constructed with a premium Sitka spruce top, and more unusually, flamed maple back and sides. The maple adds a brightness, and additional focus to the classic, sweet, dynamic tones provided by the spruce. Visually, the 614CE is a stunning instrument- in no small part due to the maple back and sides- and the instrument at Leeds is a breathtaking example. The expression system pickup ensures that it sounds great when plugged in and acoustically.

Taylor 355ce 12-String

Taylor 355CE 12-String

As in most places, 12-string acoustic guitars in Leeds can be a little ‘thin on the ground’. ‘Thin’ is not a word that could be used to describe the Taylor 355CE, however. This stunning 12-string cutaway jumbo is a guitar that has reduced grown men to gibbering wrecks. The guys at Leeds have declared it the best 12-string guitar they’ve ever heard, and they’ve heard an inordinate number…

The body is a combination of Sitka spruce top and Sapele back and sides, ensuring those sweet, sustaining high frequencies, backed up by warm, powerful bass and mids, with great dynamics and balance. Again, a Taylor Expression System ensures that it sounds great when plugged-in or, er… plugged-out…?

Three very good reasons to put Dawsons Leeds at the top your ‘places to visit in Leeds’ list, then. You won’t just find Taylor acoustic guitars in Leeds, however. Our Manchester, Liverpool and Reading branches are also Taylor dealers, so if you’d like to experience for yourself why Taylor are one of the leading acoustic guitar brands, pop in to the stores.
