This Taylor 200 Series Spruce/Koa Grand Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar blends tonal versatility with inspiring looks, thanks in part to gloss-finish koa laminate back and sides. Cream binding and small diamond fretboard inlays supply elegant accents, while a solid Sitka spruce top helps project Taylor' signature clarity and balance. A Venetian cutaway invites you up the fretboard, and Taylor' proprietary ES-T electronics deliver clean amplified tone.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4 5/8"
Taylor' signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
Their most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker' guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing.
The GA' overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be our bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won™t let you down.
Like other laminates, laminated koa features a plywood construction, in this case with interior and exterior layers of beautifully-figured koa veneer separated by a middle filler layer. Though the tonal properties of a wood laminate aren™t as complex as solid wood, the construction method enables us to offer attractive, durable instruments at a more inviting price. A solid spruce top and Taylor craftsmanship ensure a clear, balanced tonal response.
The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. It features an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full ES. Featuring a custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response, the system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator (which is lit when the battery is being used). The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole.
