OVERVIEW

Extra warm, responsive, and articulate tone.

The Taylor GC5 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar with traditional styling is intimate and curvy yet has volume that belies its size. The slotted peghead and short-scale neck deliver a more "woody" tone and an unbelievably easy feel on the fretboard. A western red cedar top paired with tropical mahogany brings rich, sparkling tone to this Taylor guitar.

Taylor GC5 - Tremendous Small Wonder

Comments about Taylor GC5 Grand Concert Mahogany/Cedar Acoustic Guitar:

I've owned the Taylor 810ce, 414ce ltd, 412ce, and the GC7, along with a Martin Alt X, Ovation Baladeer, and a high-end Alvarez Yairi dreadnaught. My style is alternative acoustic (think acoustic Tragically Hip, or BNL). Observations:* Great, well-balanced and smooth tone.* Lightweight!* Expression System is well suited for amplification.* Very comfortable to play in terms of size, and the neck feels like other Taylors, but even more comfortable.Highly recommended! Can't go wrong with this model. As I've found with all of the Taylors I've owned, you can't make a judgement about its tone with the provided Elixir strings (doesn't resonate well). Also it takes a few months or more of playing in order to get the Taylor to warm up in terms of tone (ie required break-in period).

Underappreciated gem...

By oledantucker

from Boston area

Comments about Taylor GC5 Grand Concert Mahogany/Cedar Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this used at a local music store. This is a very balanced, responsive, articulate guitar. Slightly scooped eq, focused bass, silvery treble. The short scale makes it very easy to play, but it has decent volume for a short scale. I had a Martin 000-18 that broke up when played medium hard, but this guitar does handle that kind of attack. Won't hold up if you're a dread basher, however. If you are looking for a harmonically-rich rosewood sound, you probably won't like it either. If a rosewood dread is a pipe organ, this is a baby-grand piano. It has really won me over. The only drawback is the slotted headstock, which makes changing strings a little bit of a chore. On the other hand, the headstock is nice to look at and it may be that the increased string angle provides a little more response. One other thing -- I noticed when I removed the strings that were on it and put on some 80/20 lights, the treble filled out quite a bit. I think it may still have had the stock strings on it, and I suspect these were extra light elixers which are real tone killers.
