The Taylor 2012 GS7-12-L Rosewood/Cedar Grand Symphony 12-String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar features Indian rosewood for the back and sides. This acoustic is an example of a classic tone-wood combination with nearly universal appeal. In this case, a cedar top adds a mellow warmth to rosewoods big, bold tone. The time-honored tone of an Indian rosewood/Western red cedar pairing is a mainstay of nearly every high-end guitar builder. Taylor sources the finest quality of each wood to deliver the player all the clarity, sustain, and bass response one would expect from this classic combination.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Gloss Top, Back & Sides
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
Introduced in 2006, the GS is an original design from top to bottom ” and the first new Taylor shape in over a decade. It was a hit right out of the gate. Expect acoustic power with every note, with deep, piano-like bass, rich mids and clear, balanced highs ” and plenty of volume. Its a whole new flavor of Taylor tone.
