Overview

The GA Cutaway all-mahogany Grand Auditorium blends Taylor' most versatile body style with the fundamental focus of mahogany, especially with the mahogany top. From fingerpicking to medium strumming, your acoustic tone will be clear and direct, and amplifies wonderfully with Taylor' Expression System 2 pickup. Appointments include a black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and an grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.

Grand Auditorium
The most versatile and popular of Taylor' guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It' responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.

Tropical Mahogany
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won™t yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone. As a body wood, mahogany is known for its meaty midrange character, featuring a strong fundamental focus often described as œpunchy, œwoody, or œdry, because it doesn™t produce a lot of ringing overtones. Mahogany' earthy voice has been featured on many roots music recordings over the years.

Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
