    Default Taylor Guitars releasing first solid-body electric January 2008

    Well, looks like the T5 was bridging the gap for them. Even if you don't like the way a Taylor sounds, you can't help but appreciate the company, their relationships with their dealers, their work ethic, concern for environment, their willingness to experiment a bit, their R&D...a really, REALLY cool company to be associated with--not to mention they make great, great guitars.

    Taylor Guitars announces it will introduce a solid body electric guitar.

    "Our new solid body electrics are a completely original design," Bob Taylor enthuses. "About a year ago, we were working on some humbuckers for a new T5. These pickups sounded so great, we looked up and said, 'Hey, we're in the electric guitar business now!' And instead of keeping them for the T5, we began designing an entirely new guitar, full of touches that are purely Taylor.

    "The neck and body shape are all our own," Bob elaborates. "Our aluminum bridge is just beautiful—it feels like a luxury watch band; it's invisible to the player, yet it's fully adjustable and loaded with performance features. We developed a new concept of insetting the top with exotic woods, which gives us the look of a bound guitar, with the comfort of a contoured body.

    "We literally designed every part of this guitar ourselves, right down to the knobs!"

    The Taylor solid body electric will be available in three models: Classic, Standard and Custom. Each guitar has the new Taylor Humbuckers (there will be a choice of two styles, full or 3/4-size).

    The public can see, hear and play the Taylor electric solid body during Taylor Road Shows being held at select dealerships in September and October. A limited number of pre-production models will be for sale this fall, with the major launch in January 2008.

    It looks cool. I'd check one out for sure.

    Its look reminds me somewhat of Godin electrics.
