Special editions may not be all that special these days, but I'm including this one simply because I like it. Taylor chose to mark the company's quarter century milestone with a figured mahogany tastefully appointed and reasonably priced. That fits as a description for most of their work as well.

This dreadnought is a fine display of the precision tooled woodwork that makes Taylors so consistent in fit and finish. Additionally, there are some decorative elements, once the province of hand artistry, this time executed perfectly with the aid of computer controlled equipment.
