An acoustic made of sustainable materials that doesn’t skimp on tone.
The Taylor 2012 GA3-L Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar is constructed of non-cutaway sapele/sitka acoustic version is a contemporary take on the tradition. Classic tone in a more slender hourglass shape for a smaller sonic footprint, and constructed of sustainable sapele for a smaller ecological footprint.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
Taylor’s GA3 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.
An alternative tonewood that joined the Taylor fold over a decade ago. Unlike many popular tonewoods, sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood from West Africa. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. Like ovangkol, it’s a great all-purpose tonewood that will deliver a consistent, balanced tone in a variety of playing applications, from fingerstyle to strumming.
