Blending an all-star tonewood pairing with striking visual appointments, the Taylor 400 Series offers a broad range of musical utility for working musicians of all stripes. Models feature solid Indian rosewood backs and sides paired with solid Sitka spruce tops, yielding a warm low-end character, clear trebles and a slightly scooped midrange that’s ideal for playing in arrangements with vocals or other instruments. V-Class bracing inside dials up the response with louder volume, longer sustain and greater harmony between notes, drawing out more of the rich overtone character that players love in the rosewood/spruce combo. Sunburst top finishes highlight the visual package for a stage-ready presence that’s not too precious for everyday use, while the built-in ES2 electronics offer faithful plugged-in tone for amplified scenarios.
