Taylor guitars are wonderful solid-wood instruments with a characteristically bright sound and very playable necks. We stock Taylors in a great variety of body sizes and styles ranging in size from Jumbo (larger than a Dreadnaught) down to the Baby Taylor.

The Minor Chord is proud to be an Authorized Taylor Dealer. If you are shopping for a Taylor guitar, you will want to play and compare before you buy. Our prices are competitive and our service is second to none - so why not visit us?

For complete information about Taylor guitars and the very natural and clear-sounding Taylor Expression SystemTM pickups, please see the Taylor Guitars web site.

314ce LTD Koa

The LTD model is an upgrade to the standard 314ce, Taylor's best selling guitar, with its perfect combination of comfort, sound, versatility, and price.

This 2012 limited edition version features Hawaiian koa back and sides, a wood that is normally reserved for higher-end models. Koa has a beautiful golden hue and yields a nice, clear tone - excellent for fingerstyle playing.

DN5

The DN5 is Taylor's take on a classic mahogany dreadnaught. This instrument features solid tropical mahogany back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, and ebony bridge and fingerboard. It has a 1-3/4 inch nut and gold-finish tuners. We special-order the DN5 from Taylor with a tortoise pickguard, which is not standard equipment on the DN5 model.

This is a "big sounding" Taylor with nice warmth in the bass and clear, punchy treble.

414ce

Updated for 2012, this is Taylor's 4-series Grand Auditorium cutaway acoustic/electric.

It has solid ovangkol back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, a 1-3/4 inch nut, and an ebony bridge and fingerboard with new-for-2012 elliptical pearl inlays.

The 414ce is one of Taylor's best selling models. Strumming or fingerpicking, either acoustic or plugged in - this guitar has you covered. Best of all, it's Grand Auditorium size makes it very comfortable to play.

816ce

With the 816ce, the folks at Taylor have delivered another hit!

This instrument sounds as good as it looks. It features a Grand Symphony body shape that delivers increased bass reposnse. All solid Indian rosewood back and sides, with a solid Sitka spruce top. The flame maple binding on the body and neck really makes this guitar visually "pop".

The cutaway and Taylor's Expression System electronics make a great performance instrument. This is an excellent choice - a Taylor model that is becoming increasingly popular among Taylor players.

GC8

This is our most popular small-bodied Taylor. Indian rosewood back and sides, sitka spruce top. Surprisingly loud, balanced tone for a small guitar. The slotted headstock gives it a cool look as well. Easy playability with the short scale neck and small body. Great for anyone who needs a comfortable guitar or a beginner who wants a nice smooth-playing first guitar.

914ce

The 914ce is one of the top models in the Taylor line. Beauty, sound and playability - this guitar has it all!

Grand Auditorium size. All solid Indian rosewood back and sides; solid Sitka spruce top. 'Cindy' inlay and abalone trim. Taylor Expression electronics.

This guitar delivers an marvellous balanced sound whether you play it acoustic or plugged in.

This is the new version of Taylor's former NS32ce model.

It is a Grand Concert size instrument in all solid sapele back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top. Ebony bridge and fingerboard. Black binding. 1-7/8 inch nut.

The 312ce-N is a comfortable and versatile crossover instrument - an electric nylon-string guitar with Taylor's signature easy playability.

514ce

The 514ce is one of our most popular Taylor models. Grand Auditorium shape. Tropical mahogany back and sides, western red cedar top. Taylor Espression System. The combination of mahogany and cedar gives a nice mellow warmth. This is a very expressive guitar that works especially well for fingerstyle players.

GA3

The GA3 is a Grand Auditorium size instrument with a 1-3/4 inch nut. All solid wood construction with sapele back and sides and spruce top. We custom order this model with a pickguard, which is not standard on the GA3.

With its 1-3/4 inch nut, the GA3 works well for both flatpicking and fingerstyle. This is an affordable all solid wood instrument with the characteristic 'sweet' Taylor sound.

416ce

The 416ce is a new model in the Taylor line. It has a Grand Symphony body shape with a cutaway. The back and sides are ovangkol, with a spruce top, and is equipped with Expression System electronics.

This instrument has a nice big, clear sound. It is a versatile guitar, good for both strumming and fingerpicking.

814ce

We stock the Taylor 814ce as a custom model with a sunburst top and 1-7/8 inch nut. The back and sides are rosewood with a spruce top. The maple binding on the body and neck contrasts nicely with the rosewood.

This instrument looks, sounds and feels beautiful. It is one of Taylor's (and The Minor Chord's) best-selling guitars.

DN3

The DN3 is an all solid wood Dreadnought. Sapele back and sides. Sitka spruce top. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. 1-3/4 inch nut. We special-order this model with the pickguard, which is not standard on the DN3.

The Taylor DN3 is a full-sounding Taylor guitar and one of our best selling instruments. It's Taylor's most affordable all-solid-wood guitar with a sound and feel that will not disappoint you.

110

Taylor's most affordable full-sized Dreadnaught. Laminate mahogany back and sides. Solid Sitka spruce top. Ebony fingerboard lends itself to smooth playability. If you want the Taylor sound and feel but are shopping on a budget, this is the right guitar for you.

110ce

The 110ce is built to the same specifications as the Taylor 110 but with a cutaway body style and Taylor's ES-T pickup system.

114

Comfortable Grand Auditorium shape. Laminate mahogany back and sides. Solid Sitka spruce top. Ebony bridge and fingerboard. This is a great guitar if you are on a budget or if you looking for a good finger-style instrument.

The 114ce is built to the same specifications as the Taylor 114 but with a cutaway body style and Taylor's ES-T® pickup system.

310ce

All solid wood Dreadnaught with sapele sides and back and Sitka spruce top. Includes the Taylor Expression System. The 310ce delivers tons of sound. This guitar will stand up to heavy strumming and can deliver the volume and intensity you need in live performance.

314ce

This is one of our most popular Taylor acoustic-electric models. Very comfortable Grand Auditorium shape. All solid wood construction with sapele sides and back and Sitka spruce top. Includes Taylor Expression System. Smooth playing ebony fingerboard. This is a great all-around versatile guitar for both strumming and finger-style playing.

GA3-12

Have you tried to play a 12-string guitar and found it too difficult? The Taylor GA3-12 is not that guitar! Uncompromising Taylor playability makes this one of the smoothest 12-strings you'll ever play. All solid wood construction with sapele sides and back, Sitka spruce top. This guitar has a nice low action, especially compared to most 12-strings.

We special-order this model with the pickguard, which is not standard on the DN3.

GS-Mini

The GS-Mini is Taylor's new fractional-size guitar with the same "NT" neck construction as their full-size models. Available with a solid mahogany top (pictured at left) or a solid Sitka spruce top (pictured below). Both models have an ebony bridge and fingerboard.

The GS-Mini is a scaled-down version of the Taylor Grand Symphony shape. It is surprisingly loud for a small instrument, with a warm sound.

If you are looking for a travel guitar or a smaller instrument but want a neck closer to the size of a standard guitar, the GS-Mini is a great choice.

You can easily add the optional Taylor ES-Go magnetic soundhole pickup for acoustic-electric playing. The ES-Go V-cable allows you to control your volume right on the cable and includes an iPhone audio interface that allows you to record anywhere.
