Taylor launches acoustic guitars on par with The Last Of Us Part II | Guitare.com


Guitar fans The Last of Us Part II will be pleased to hear that Taylor has created two officially licensed acoustic guitars – a 314CE and a GS Mini, both designed with Naughty Dog – to accompany the game’s release.

“Music remains a recurring theme in [The Last Of Us Part II]”, said Taylor on the instruments. “Ellie – the heroine and courageous survivor who fights her way [a] post-apocalyptic world – plays an acoustic guitar in the game, and we at Taylor couldn’t have been more excited to help make this guitar a reality.”

This Grand Auditorium was inspired by the guitar played by the game’s protagonist, Ellie, with its design meant to “evoke intimate musical moments” from the game itself. This electro-acoustic features a Sitka spruce top paired with sapele sides and back for “harmonious balance across the tonal spectrum.”

Its body shape and neck design are distinctly Taylor and are designed with smooth, comfortable playability in mind. Fans who have played the game or seen some of its promotional material will recognize the guitar’s tobacco finish, two-ring rosette, custom Moth inlay, and faux tortoiseshell pickguard. In addition, this model is equipped with an ES2 microphone and a deluxe hard case.

This downsized acoustic is constructed with a solid mahogany top and laminated sapele back and sides. It is said to have a “punchy, vibrating” sonic behavior. The design of this ornate acoustic references Ellie’s tattoo design and also adorns the game’s logo on her headstock, alongside the Taylor logo.

Other appointments on this acoustic include a faux tortoiseshell pickguard to contrast its black finish and chrome die-cast tuners. This acoustic also comes with its own hard carry bag.

Both guitars are available on the PlayStation Gear Store. The Taylor 314CE is priced at $2,299; the GS mini is priced at $699.
