Bold, bright tone with great playability and ready for the stage with Expression System electronics.
The Taylor 2012 GS8e-12 Rosewood/Spruce Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar has two tonewoods that represent a classic combination of nearly universal appeal. With a Sitka spruce top, Taylor adds a touch of crispness to the Indian rosewood' big, bold tone. Indian rosewood seems as if it was created to be on a guitar. The clarity, balance, sustain, excellent bass response, and wonderful coloration and figure are without equal. Paired with Sitka spruce, it is an unstoppable combination. The onboard Taylor Expression System is ready to provide plugged-in excellence on any stage.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Gloss Top, Back & Sides
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
Natural Sound Made Simple
The Expression System (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.
Introduced in 2006, the GS is an original design from top to bottom ” and the first new Taylor shape in over a decade. It was a hit right out of the gate. Expect acoustic power with every note, with deep, piano-like bass, rich mids and clear, balanced highs ” and plenty of volume. It' a whole new flavor of Taylor tone.
