    Taylor

    A well-rounded 12-string acoustic-electric that looks and plays like guitars costing much more.

    Taylor’s 2012 GA4e-12-L Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium 12-String Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a look and tone that is able to rival almost any other in the high-end guitar world. Yet Taylor’s ability to affordably source this rich, rosewood-like tonewood keeps it decidedly within reach.

    Grand Auditorium (GA)
    Taylor’s GA4e-12 shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic. The mid-size grand auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a dreadnought and grand concert. The shape produces an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA’s overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar.

    Ovangkol
    Over a decade ago, Taylor introduced the guitar world to a sustainable tonewood known as ovangkol. An African relative of rosewood, it's a great sounding wood that shares many of rosewood's tonal properties, with a slightly fuller midrange and a top end that's not quite as bright as maple. Being lesser known than rosewood, ovangkol has been a sleeper hit over the years, asserting itself as an instant contender among unsuspecting players who test-drive a variety of Taylor models.

    Expression System
    Taylor’s groundbreaking Expression System (ES) was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your GA4e-12. The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls — volume, bass and treble
