Amazingly appointed GS acoustic-electric guitar

The GS acoustic-electric guitar Taylor created for this special guitar and amp set features premium tonewoods pulled from Taylor's private wood reserves. You could easily spend hours exploring the nuances of the flamed Claro walnut back and sides (topped with Western Red cedar for incredible tone), the mahogany neck, and the rosewood binding. Look closer, and you'll be captivated by intricate details like the "Nouveau Bouquet" inlay design created by Taylor guitar designer Andy Powers. It's made from European maple and myrtle, incorporated with love into the fretboard.

Matching amplifier, optimized for Taylor ES electronics

The Taylor Limited Edition BR-VIII Set includes a beautifully collectible 40-watt combo amplifier, optimized to reinforce the transparent sound of Taylor's ES electronics. The sound is pure, and the design is breathtaking. The amp's cabinet is made from solid figured walnut, chosen to match the back and sides of the GS guitar. And because these very special amps will only be available in this limited edition set, you'll be the owner of a collectible piece of Taylor history.

Incredibly collectible, only 30 sets being made
