When Taylor updated the design of their 800 series guitars in 2014, we all hoped that those improvements would work their way through to the rest of the product line. A year later, I'm happy to announce that they have, and the results are quite stunning.
I've made no bones about my preference for Taylor's Grand Concert body shape. I think it's their best instrument—pretty much all our custom/BTO Taylors are Grand Concerts, and we typically have more of these than any other Taylor body style in the shop. So, of course, when I heard the 900s were getting an update, I put this instrument on order as soon as I could. There's no cutaway, no factory electronics, just clean beauty, and a remarkably rich and sweet tone. If you're in the market for a premium Taylor, look no further than this outstanding guitar right here. It's a keeper.
