OVERVIEW

With simple elegant styling, great playability and ready for any stage.

The Taylor GS8-12 E Grand Symphony is a 12-String acoustic-electric guitar that features a Sitka spruce top for a touch of crispness to the big bold tone of the rosewood back and sides. The traditional acoustic guitar styling of the Taylor GS8-12 E creates an elegant, understated look. Equipped with the Taylor Expression System, this 12-string Grand Symphony guitar has the tools to shine in any music venue.

Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the Taylor Grand Symphony guitar is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 12-string GS8-12 E guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

The finish used to create this Taylor guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

I MUST HAVE IT!

Comments about Taylor GS8-12 E Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had the honor-nay, the privilege- of being able to play this guitar at my local music store, Back Beat. I. Was. BLOWN. AWAY. The guitar itself sang unplugged, and the electronics gave it a pleasant boost. I AM BEGGING THE 'RENTS TO GET THIS FOR ME.
