OVERVIEW

The elegant Grand Symphony 12-string with the Expression System 2 Preamp

Taylor's revitalized 500 Series mahogany guitars are brimming with appealing refinements, starting with new bracing that boosts the volume, low-end richness and projection, while also making the guitars more responsive. A new top wood, Lutz spruce, joins the mix on Dreadnought and Grand Symphony models, producing a powerful sound reminiscent of Adirondack spruce. All 500 Series instruments ship in a deluxe hard shell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Compared to the Taylor Grand Auditorium, the Grand Symphony has a bigger, rounder lower bout and slightely wider "waist" area, and the bigger sound board (top) means more tonal output. Expect a meaty lower midrange and strong treble shimmer. A GS is best if you want a guitar with a robust low end, strong volume when strumming or flatpicking, and clear articulation in response to light fingerpicking attack.
