Designed by the legendary UK guitar builder and hardware specialist Alan Entwistle, the new Rapier Taurus is based on original 60’s iconic brands that played a major role in the industry of British built guitars and basses from the 1960s.  

Whilst maintaining all the visual charm of the originals, like all models in the Rapier Series, the Rapier Taurus features significant upgrades to meet the needs of the modern player. This superb double cutaway, with its distinctive curved horns and narrow waist okueme body, now features significant upgrades to meet the requirements of the modern player. 

These include a maple neck with a bound 23 fret (including zero fret) jatoba fingerboard, a sensitive Hi Lo vibrato system where stable tuning and accurate intonation and return to pitch are spot on every time via Wilkinson machine heads, a precision cut GraphTech nut and a fully adjustable roller bridge.  

Installed with a trio of Entwistle low-noise RKS6C picks with a Double Switch System master Volume and Tone controls and Bass Cut slide switch circuitry, the new Rapier Taurus effortlessly glides through all the classic sounds from the 60’s and genres of jazz, blues, pop and rock.  

Looking effortlessly stylish finished in Arctic White colours with matching headstocks and 3 ply scratchplate
