The Taylor 326e Baritone-8 LTD is for guitar players who want to take their songwriting and musicianship to the next level with this unique-sounding instrument.
The Perfect Ingredients for a Baritone
Taylor's selection of fine tonewoods are an integral part of the 326e Baritone-8 LTD. Their choice to use these particular woods for the top and back provide a sonic experience like no other, especially since those deep baritone tones from the Grand Symphony body resonate much differently than a standard acoustic guitar. The full-sounding Grand Symphony body paired with the gorgeous satin-finished tropical mahogany top delivers natural compression, strong midrange tones, and opens up when played more; enriching the natural tones. The consistent and balanced tonal output from the sapele back and sides work well for diverse playing styles, so there are plenty of options to explore.
Baritone Scale Length and Octave Strings for a Unique Shimmer
The neck requires an extended 27" scale length to compensate for the baritone tuning and maintain normal string tension. The Taylor 326e Baritone-8 LTD is tuned B-B with octave strings on the two middle strings, which works well for exploring sonic landscapes and gives this baritone guitar a very distinct sound. The octave middle strings give the guitar a doubling, almost chorus-like sound that gives it a very distinct voice.
Taylor's Expression System 2 Electronics
The revolutionary Expression System 2 electronics incorporate a pickup that sits behind the saddle on the Taylor 326e Baritone-8 LTD, which provides accurate, natural-sounding, crystal-clear tones. A master volume and pair of tone controls let you dial-in your desired tones and an onboard phase switch suppressed unwanted feedback.

I played this guitar at Sam Ash while my daughter was visiting. I went back to the store about five times to play it, sold some gear, traded in some gear, and bought it. This was my first purchase from Sam Ash music. The service at Sam Ash was exceptional. Thanks, Jeff, in Lemon Grove, CA.
The guitar sounds incredible. I am mostly tuning it down to D, although I sometimes tune it all the way down to B. I went back and forth on 6 string baritone or 8 string. I like the additional strings, but probably will buy another baritone 6 at some point and use both.
I was NOT looking to buy a new guitar, but Taylor hit another home run and it came home with me.
