15th January 2011 — Building on the success of its versatile line of SolidBody electric models, Taylor Guitars is adding new options for 2011 in the form of a double cutaway and a slew of vibrant colors for the SolidBody Standard. The new offerings expand the custom ordering capability, allowing players to easily design the look and sound of their SolidBody to suit their style.

As a completely customizable guitar, players can “build” their SolidBody by choosing from a series of options that include body style (Classic or Standard), cutaway (single or double), color, pickguard color (including a new color, Parchment), bridge (stoptail or tremolo) and a variety of Taylor’s “plug and play” solderless pickups. With nearly a dozen different pickup configurations are available, including high gain (HG) and high definition (HD) humbuckers, Vintage Alnicos (VA), and silent single coils, the “plug and play” pickups were designed to be easily swapped to change the guitar’s sonic personality on the fly.

Also new to the line is a palette of rich color options, exclusive to the SolidBody Standard, to highlight the highly figured maple tops, a new addition to the 2011 line. Among the new colors are Borrego Red, Tiger’s Eye and Gold Rush. Fans of the Classic can choose from a separate color palette, which includes Lava Red Pearl, Jewelescent Orange, Purple Flake, among others.
