Straight from the Taylor booth at NAMM 2016, this is a one-off Grand Symphony with great looking tonewoods and electronics.

It's not every day you have the chance to own an original, one-of-a-kind instrument from one of the music industry's biggest names. But with this one-off Custom-GS-12-9296 12-string acoustic-electric just happens to be one of those opportunities. Purchased off the NAMM 2016 floor directly from Taylor's booth, the Custom-GS-12-9296 is a sharp-looking Grand Symphony model comprised of an AA quilt maple body and Sitka spruce top adorned with figured Hawaiian koa binding, fiber purling, a tree inlay made from a koa trunk, paua, and black oyster, an aged cherryburst gloss finish. Finishing it off is Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics for exceptional plugged-in accuracy.

Comes with brown hardshell case.

Grand Symphony
Slightly bigger than Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816ce yields a rich and powerful sound without sacrificing bell-like articulation. It makes a potent strummer, and dynamic fingerstylists will enjoy the thick, full-bodied character of the notes. 

Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Maple has long been associated with a bright acoustic sound, but Taylor’s maple guitars are voiced to bring out greater warmth, richness and sustain. This broadens maple’s tonal range from a single-dimension sound to a more musical, more versatile voice.

Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
