Through the Builder’s Reserve series, Taylor tap their private wood reserves to craft small batches of unique, detail-rich instruments. Typically the wood sets selected are available in extremely limited quantities — even more so than Taylor's other seasonal limited editions — and the guitars they inspire demand an extraordinary level of craftsmanship. Several years ago Taylor started with a SolidBody Classic made from burled Bastogne walnut, followed by a run of 50 Liberty Tree T5 models featuring tops made of the remaining wood from a historic tree. For 2012 Taylor Guitars rekindles the spirit of super-premium, handmade craftsmanship that sets Builder’s Reserve apart with two groundbreaking Taylor offerings: an acoustic amp and a tenor ukulele, each paired with a fantastic companion guitar. For each quarter in 2012, a fresh batch of pairings will be released, each featuring a unique design aesthetic.
