Entrancing quilted sapele body with delicious detailing.
Rare quilted sapele adds a striking visual shimmer to the back and sides of this limited edition Taylor Grand Auditorium. The Sitka spruce top boasts Adirondack spruce CV bracing, which boosts the guitar' volume and overall fullness without sacrificing clarity. Together with mahogany' clear, warm and fundamentally strong sonic character, players can expect a dynamic tone profile that responds well to nearly any playing style.
Premium aesthetic strokes include a sharp Florentine cutaway and a fresh appointment package featuring a rosewood/mother-of-pearl Capstone fretboard inlay, rosewood/mother-of-pearl rosette, rosewood binding with curly maple top edge trim, a rosewood back strip, Gotoh Gold tuners, along with an all-gloss body and Taylor' Expression System 2 electronics. The guitar features a limited edition label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.|
In contrast to the relatively straight-grained sapele used for backs and sides in Taylor' 300 Series, quilted sapele is an extremely rare and precious find. Rare enough that years can pass between appearances. While standard sapele is normally quartersawn, which contributes to its overall stiffness, quilted sapele is often flatsawn. This not only allows the beautiful figure to be showcased to maximum effect, it also produces more flex in the wood. This translates tonally into slightly more power and warmth than standard sapele, which typically has a mahogany-like tone with a more pronounced treble zing.
The most versatile and popular of Taylor' guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It' responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.
Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
