Taylor XXXV-GS-W 35th Anniversary Feathered Walnut 2009

Taylor XXXV-GS-W 35th Anniversary Feathered Walnut 2009. Designed to embody a blend of beauty, refined craftsmanship and playing comfort, Taylor Guitars introduced a special 35th Anniversary edition guitar series in 2009 that showcased a sculpted armrest, marking the first time such a feature has been included on a Taylor guitar. The XXXV-GS, simply known as the “Armrest Series”, incorporates Taylor’s popular body style, the Grand Symphony (GS), and features the magnificence of select exotic tonewoods as the perfect match to an elegant, yet practical handcrafted armrest.

The armrest, located on the bass side of the guitar’s lower bout, replaces the hard edge where a guitar’s top meets the sides with a softer contour for one’s picking arm to comfortably rest upon while playing. Beyond the ergonomic appeal, an armrest applies a premium aesthetic touch that complements the GS body shape’s sensuous curves. It also demands the highest level of guitar craftsmanship.

“With the armrest, the woodworking is complicated, but as part of our anniversary, we wanted to offer players a guitar with the coolest, most complex binding treatment you can get on an acoustic,” explains Taylor president and co-founder Bob Taylor.

To complement the armrest, Taylor’s development team scoured the company’s substantial wood reserves to find the most striking premium grades of wood, which normally would be saved for the company’s custom Build to Order program. The exotic selections include a back, sides and decorative backstrap choice of  feathered walnut, Sitka spruce top, voiced with Taylor’s proprietary, tone-enhancing CV bracing, and the Expression System® pickup to deliver superb amplified tone.

Additional premium appointments for this guitar include a 900 Series abalone rosette, a bone nut and saddle, gold Gotoh tuners, an all-gloss finish, Florentine cutaway and ebony armrest, binding, headstock overlay and truss rod cover. On the fretboard, a single inlay of “35” between the 11th and 12th frets pays homage to the company’s anniversary.
