A rich-grained mahogany top paired with Tasmanian blackwood back and sides give Taylor’s medium-size cutaway Grand Auditorium body plenty of tonal and visual character. The clear, punchy midrange behaves well in a mix with other instruments, and delivers the kind of musical versatility that makes this a reliable guitar in different playing scenarios. Neo-traditional appointments complement mahogany’s dark, vintage looks, including a shaded edgeburst top and all-satin finish. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway and comes equipped with Expression System® 2 electronics for a dynamic amplified acoustic sound.
Grand Auditorium - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
Solid Tropical Mahogany top - The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Solid Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides - Blackwood produces a strong volume, with a focused midrange and rich top-end shimmer.
Expression System® 2 pickup - The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”- grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
Venetian Cutaway - 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.
