Description

Body Shape
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound. The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the GA is an excellent choice.

Tonewoods
A guitar’s top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Solid Hawaiian koa is a hardwood that produces a natural compression, yielding more of a controlled “roll-in” effect to a note. The compression evens out a lively attack for a more balanced response. It delivers strong fundamentals with clear and direct focus – similar to mahogany – but with extra top-end shimmer and chime. Layered Hawaiian koa back and sides create a visually appealing and complementary platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar’s top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

Electronics
Taylor’s ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the- saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn’t sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar’s tone to come through clearly whether playing acousticly or plugged-in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged-in. 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. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls.

The Taylor Difference
What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

    Beautiful!!! Not only the aesthetics, but also tonality… The action is perfect, and the playability is perfect!!! Great guitar overall…

  2. Mutassem

    I think this is it ! if this guitar costs 10,000 I would still say worth the money because for me nothing out there is better than this guitar !!
    I have tried many taylors and martins before buying this one. It was simple .. which was the most satisfying sound of them all picking and strumming ..
    It has a bright tone . I tried different strings till now i think the strings that come with the guitar is the best suitable strings for this guitar .
    I had it for 1 year now .. like new .. it doesn’t get old.

    I have 4 guitars. A Martin 0-28 VS, a Gibson Les Paul, a Kenny Hill Players 640 Classical with ports, and a beautiful Taylor 614 ce.
    All of these guitars have a special place in my heart, and skill level. I am a classically trained pianist. This Taylor shines both acoustically and plugged in. I plug it into a Fisher Mini Loudmouth.Give it a try, I am sure you will be very pleased.
