The Taylor GS5-12 Grand Symphony is a 12-String acoustic guitar that combines the exceptionally warm and articulate tones of tropical mahogany with a Sitka spruce top. You get a guitar with wide dynamic range and mellow warm tone. The traditional acoustic guitar styling of the Taylor GS5-12 creates an elegant, understated look, but with the power and richness only a 12-string guitar can deliver.
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the Grand Symphony guitar 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.
The finish used to create this Taylor 12-string guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
