Taylor’s popular 400 Series features a choice of solid ovangkol or rosewood back and sides, paired with a Sitka spruce top.
Sonically, ovangkol and rosewood are kindred spirits, sharing a broad frequency range, from deep lows to clear highs. Subtle differences include rosewood’s extra top-end overtone sparkle compared to ovangkol’s richer midrange. Crisp white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a full-gloss body project a clean, modern look. With the onboard ES2 pickup, the series gives players a pro-level guitar that makes a top-notch gigging partner.
