Bold, rich tone with bold, rich aesthetics make this an worthwhile creative investment.
The Custom Cocobolo/Adirondack Grand Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar displays classic looks, while providing all the innovation and modern craftsmanship you'd expect from this Southern California builder. The top is Adirondack spruce with Adirondack bracing, and the back is superb select cocobolo, creating a punchy and percussive sound.
The fingerboard features small diamond inlays that harken back to a simpler, folksy era. The top is given a light aged toner finish and the guitar is trimmed with ivoroid binding to enhance its traditional appearance. This workhorse guitar would feel at home in the hands of a bluegrass picker or a great singer-songwriter. It comes with Taylor's latest Expression System 2 electronics for flawless amplification.
The newest shape to join the Taylor family unleashes the boldest, richest voice available in a Taylor guitar. Just as the Grand Symphony yields a deeper, more powerful voice than the Grand Auditorium, the Grand Orchestra stands out as a more robust alternative to the Grand Symphony. The GO shape features a slightly bigger footprint and a deeper body, which helps produce a potent low-end response. Under the hood, a new bracing scheme optimizes the movement of the soundboard to produce louder, more complex tone with incredible sustain.
What separates the Grand Orchestra from other big-bodied guitars is how balanced the tone is from top to bottom, especially given its brawny bass. And unlike other big-body guitars that require an aggressive attack to get the top moving, the GO is responsive to a light touch, rewarding players who have a dynamic playing style. If you crave a guitar sound that' brimming with power and rich detail, the Grand Orchestra won't disappoint. From big cowboy chords to lush fingerstyle arrangements, the Grand Orchestra might be the most expressive and versatile big guitar you ever play.
Expression System 2
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.
Together with Taylor's custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
