Overview

Signature Taylor performance, quality and value make the Taylor 2012 GA3E Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar a great introduction to the solid-wood Taylor experience. Taylor craftsmanship and incredible versatility make the GA3e a popular choice.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
Taylor' signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic. The mid-size GA3e falls between a dreadnought and grand concert. The shape produces an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA' overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage.

Sapele
An alternative tonewood that joined the Taylor fold over a decade ago. Unlike many popular tonewoods, sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood from West Africa. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. Like ovangkol, it' a great all-purpose tonewood that will deliver a consistent, balanced tone in a variety of playing applications, from fingerstyle to strumming.

Expression System
Taylor' groundbreaking Expression System (ES) was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar. The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls ” volume, bass and treble.
