The 326ce Baritone-8 Special Edition embodies Taylor's spirit of musical innovation with a bold, rich voice that blends low-register depth with a splash of 12-string shimmer. This baritone-scale (27") acoustic-electric features B-to-B tuning with octave pairings for the third and fourth (D and A) strings, yielding a powerful bass-range voice coupled with sparkling sonic texture. Solid mahogany back, sides and top deliver warmth, focus and clarity, making this Grand Symphony an ideal choice for recording sessions as well as live play. Especially useful when paired with vocalists whose range is below the standard guitar's frequency spectrum, the 326ce Baritone-8 Special Edition can be returned to standard tuning by placing a capo at the fifth fret. It ships with ES2 electronics and a deluxe hardshell case.
