A well-rounded, all-purpose solid wood guitar with the tone and look of guitars costing far more.
The look and tone of Taylors 2012 GA4 Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar rivals almost any other in the high-end guitar world. Yet Taylors ability to affordably source this beautiful, rosewood-like tonewood keeps it decidedly within reach.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
Taylors GA4 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 GAs 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.
Over a decade ago, Taylor introduced the guitar world to a sustainable tonewood known as ovangkol. An African relative of rosewood, it's a great sounding wood that shares many of rosewood's tonal properties, with a slightly fuller midrange and a top end that's not quite as bright as maple. Being lesser known than rosewood, ovangkol has been a sleeper hit over the years, asserting itself as an instant contender among unsuspecting players who test-drive a variety of Taylor models.
