Description

What Taylor Say....

An array of nuanced voicing refinements have infused this Taylor Grand Symphony already known for having a powerful sound with even more tonal horsepower, extra low-end rumble, and a richer overall response, all without sacrificing balance or top-end articulation. A comprehensive aesthetic makeover preserves the status of our 900 Series as our ultra-premium class of rosewood guitars, featuring intricate appointments. A contoured armrest showcases the highest level of Taylor craftsmanship and offers players an elegant and ergonomic feature that makes strumming and picking more comfortable than ever. Aesthetic details include a smooth fusion of natural materials wood and shell in the form of ebony binding, koa purfling, and a mix of abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay and trim work. Additional features include a soft Venetian cutaway and Taylor's Expression System® 2 pickup for superb amplified tone. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Shape Grand Symphony
With a slightly larger footprint than the Grand Auditorium, the GS yields a slightly more potent and dynamic all-around sound. Players can expect deeper bass, thicker trebles, and increased volume and low-end sustain, all without disrupting the tonal balance and clarity of the guitar.

Top Wood Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Body Wood Indian Rosewood
Indian rosewood's sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum has made it one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods. Its deep lows can assert a throaty growl, while bright, sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.

Electronics Expression System 2
Taylor's 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.

Cutaway Venetian
Standard on 'ce' models in the 300 Series and up, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. The Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, and Grand Symphony have a steeper slope, while the Dreadnought is a bit flatter. Our Grand Concert nylon-string models also feature a subtle, flatter slope, while our 100 and 200 Series cutaway models incorporate our flattest slope.
