Taylor Baritone-6 CW Acoustic Guitar, 2006

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Today we’re looking at a very nicely kept Taylor Baritone-6 Cutaway acoustic, with a K&K pickup added. These are deep, rich sounding instruments that can add a vast dimension to a sonic palette.

The Taylor Baritone-6 is currently out of production, but was built as a 27 inch scale acoustic using Indian Rosewood back, sides and headplate and Spruce top, with mahogany neck and ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The top has a fairly large, thin clear plastic tap plate, which will protect the finish from marking without dampening it significantly. These instruments were originally tuned down a fourth from ‘regular’ guitar tuning.

This example dates to 2009 and was built at the Taylor facility in El Cajon, California. It’s in very clean condition with just the lightest wear. A K&K pickup has been added, outputting via an endpin jack.

The original brown Taylor case is included.

Here’s a description of baritone guitars from the Taylor website:

“Taylor baritone guitars are designed for playing in a lower register with normal string tension, thanks to a longer 27-inch scale length. Tuned to B (B E A D F# B), the deeper acoustic tone is voiced with the GS body shape and a wood combination of either Indian rosewood or mahogany with Sitka spruce. The deeper tonal voice will appeal to singer-songwriters and other players who favor playing in a lower register. The baritone also blends well with other instruments, adding a different sonic texture to create a rich, ensemble sound.”
