Full-bodied tropical mahogany guitar with European spruce top for full-bodied sound with Expression System 2 electronics.
The body style of Taylor's Fall 2013 Edition Grand Symphony matches well with the tonewood pairing of beautiful curly mahogany and European spruce, producing a powerful, warm and sophisticated acoustic voice that suggests a refined take on a bluegrass guitar. Premium touches include tone-enhancing Adirondack spruce CV bracing, figured mahogany edge trim on the soundboard, a rosette of figured mahogany and boxwood, a newly designed œAvian fretboard inlay in boxwood, rosewood binding, a boxwood peghead logo, Gotoh gold tuners and new Taylor Expression System acoustic electronics. The model features a 2013 Fall Limited Edition label inside the guitar and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Body Length: 20"/Body Width: 16-1/4"/Body Depth: 4-5/8"
Taylor's Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you'e a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn™t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.
