Overview

The 2016 700 Series 756ce Grand Symphony 12-string unleashes a remarkably rich voice thanks to rosewood’s sweeping tonal range and natural overtone sparkle, together with the natural double-course shimmer of the 12-string design. Even better, all that high-fidelity detail rings out with a level of clarity and balance that have come to define the Taylor sound. The Lutz spruce top and other 700 Series voicing refinements boost the dynamic range, while the Grand Symphony body rewards strummers with piano-like bass notes and a meaty lower midrange topped with bold trebles. Finely calibrated aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, along with a “weathered brown” pickguard design with a visual pattern reminiscent of leather. The guitar’s Venetian cutaway invites upper fretboard exploration, while Taylor’s proprietary Expression System 2 pickup and preamp capture all that lush 12-string acoustic detail whenever you want to plug in.


Includes hardshell case.

Grand Symphony
The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.

Lutz Spruce
A naturally occurring hybrid of Sitka and White spruce, Lutz grows in climate zones between where Sitka and white spruce are found. (Sitka grows in more coastal areas, while white spruce thrives in interior regions.) Lutz has is considered very adaptive within those microclimates, which can yield properties that are superior to either species alone. In terms of acoustic response, Lutz blends the positive characteristics of Sitka and white spruce and its close cousin, Engelmann spruce. The Lutz that Taylor uses for the 500 Series tends to exhibit characteristics of Adirondack spruce. The result is powerful sonic horsepower that translates into strong volume, projection and tonal richness.

Indian Rosewood
One of the most popular and traditional guitar woods of all time, rosewood takes the basic sonic thumbprint of mahogany (which has a strong midrange) and expands it in both directions. Rosewood sounds deeper in the low end and brighter on the top end (one might describe the treble notes as zesty, sparkly or sizzly, with more articulation). If you look at its frequency range visually, rosewood would appear to be more scooped in the middle, yielding less midrange bloom than mahogany. Like mahogany, rosewood’s vintage heritage has helped firmly establish its acoustic legacy. It’s a great sound in part because we know that sound. In some music circles in which preserving the traditional sound helps bring a sense of authenticity to the music — certain strains of Americana, for example — rosewood has an iconic status. Also like mahogany, rosewood is a versatile tonewood, which has contributed to its popularity. One can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. It’s very consistent, so players can usually rely on it to deliver.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 (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. 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.
