Overview

Taylor took their grand auditorium guitar shape and applied it to the GA3 Sapele Sitka model to create an instrument that's excellent for mic'ing and recording as well as live performance. The Grand Auditorium style has been the mainstay of Taylor's Acoustic-Electric line for years, excelling at light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. The GA guitar's balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice..

The GA3 acoustic guitar delivers signature Taylor performance, quality, and value. And the sapele/spruce combination gives you a great introduction to the solid-wood Taylor experience. The warm tone and open midrange of sapele balances the bright and snappy characteristics of a Sitka spruce top. The resulting combination provides the perfect guitar for strong, rhythmic playing styles. Simple, traditional styling and renowned Taylor craftsmanship make this combination one of the most popular models.

The finish used to create the Taylor GA3 guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top 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.

Love it!

Comments about Taylor GA3 Grand Auditorium Sapele/Sitka Acoustic Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for 15 years and have owned a couple of sweet guitars. This Taylor is so well balanced, and of course plays great. I bought a Martin custom MMV from guitar center. It sounded good as well, but after having it a day, it just wasn't what I was looking for. It felt a little to cowboy for me. It was a great piece, but I wanted something that was a little more comfortable and with better action. Because Guitar Center is great and has a 30 day return policy, I returned it. I then pick up some Taylors. I just couldn't deny the playability as a player. I like to play up and down the neck, not just a strummer up top. The Taylor 314 was perfect but not a fan of the pick guard on Taylors, which is only a preference, that's all. So I looked on Guitar Centers web site and came across this one. Loved the look of it right off the bat. Simple! They didn't have it in stock, but I knew it would play like the 314, so I ordered it. Right out of the box it was money! I had Brian the guitar tech, at the local Guitar Center put in a Fishman Matrix pick up system and got the action back to perfection. It is my favorite of the few guitars that I have owned.

Taylor GA3 w/expression system

By Brice

Comments about Taylor GA3 Grand Auditorium Sapele/Sitka Acoustic Guitar:

The finest guitar in my stable. I own several guitars from Ovation to Alvarez and the GA3 is by far the best guitar. I would describe the sound as accurate. Deep bass, crisp highs, and smooth mid range. I played Martin D28's, Alvarez Yari's, Gibson Hummingbird's and chose this guitar as the best sounding of the group. The GA3 lends itself to finger picking and light strumming but can handle a dig or two now and then. My GA3 has the electronics built into it which doesn't detract from the sound but makes it convenient when playing coffee houses with pa systems. I highly recommend this guitar and Taylor accoustic's in general. The lifetime guarantee is icing on the cake.

I've played them all!

Comments about Taylor GA3 Grand Auditorium Sapele/Sitka Acoustic Guitar:

I received my new Taylor GC3 two weeks ago from Guitar Center Online. I was looking for a new guitar this, and had played a few Taylors but could not find one this size in the local shops. Out of the box, (it was almost still in tune)this guitar played like a dream. It's the best acoustic I've ever played. Even with Guitar Centers 30 day return policy, I threw the shipping box away the next day. This on's a keeper.
