Taylor Guitars has a long history of introducing compelling new tonewood flavors to the world, and we’re as excited as ever been to debut a stunning new entry — red ironbark — as the new featured tonewood of Taylor's reimagined 500 Series. Urban Ironbark is sourced in Southern California through Taylor's urban wood initiative, after exploring and falling in love with its acoustic properties, master builder Andy Powers has paired ironbark back and sides with a torrefied spruce top and deployed a new voicing recipe — shaped by V-Class bracing — to bring another uniquely enticing tone profile to the Taylor line.

The Tone

Imagine the sonic depth and richness of Indian rosewood pushed to another level. Red Ironbark’s hardness and density are comparable to ebony, and together with a roasted spruce top, produce a sound that’s loud, muscular and sweet, with piano-like fidelity, complexity and depth across the entire frequency spectrum. Notes jump out of the guitar, producing a natural amplifying effect that will fill a room with sound. Any player who appreciates the sonic virtues and versatility of Taylor's flagship rosewood/spruce 814ce will love the Grand Auditorium 514ce.

Appointments

In a nod to the classic heritage of Taylor’s 500 Series, the new appointment package preserves a traditional aesthetic, updated with subtle decorative touches to complement the new wood pairing. The back and sides feature a stain that deepens ironbark’s natural reddish and goldenbrown hues. The body and neck also feature a lightly shaded edgeburst, with a gloss-finish body and satin-finish neck. Other details include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, faux tortoise binding and pickguard, a single-ring abalone rosette with maple and black purfling, and Taylor nickel tuners. Both models feature a Venetian cutaway and onboard ES2 electronics and ship with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
