Overview

The Taylor GA4-12 guitar has full 12-string guitar tone, with a more slender, hour-glass grand auditorium shape. The look and tone of an ovangkol back & sides and Sitka spruce top combination creates a rich tonal tapestry and rivals almost any other in the high-end guitar world. Yet Taylor's ability to affordably source this beautiful, rosewood-like tonewood keeps it decidedly within reach.

Although the grand auditorium body style has the width and depth of a dreadnought, its narrower waist gives it the appearance of a smaller instrument, adds treble "zing" across the guitar's tonal spectrum, sharpens the definition of individual notes, and also enables it to rest comfortably in the lap. With less mass from the width of the braces, the guitar top moves faster, resulting in a snappy, bell-like tone. The Taylor GA4-12, is designed to be a strong fingerpicking guitar that also can handle medium strumming, and is exceptionally versatile.

Love this Taylor!

By Bill

from Cloquet, MN

in 1979 I had a Guild F512 which was an outstanding 12 string guitar. Unfortunately, I pretty much stopped playing and then sold it. But I have been playing much more the past few years on a 6 string Martin. But my yearning for a quality 12 string had me shopping for months. After trying out many 12 strings. this Taylor GA4-12 stood out. Wonderful tone, sustain and a very easy to play instrument. I am so glad I settled on this guitar and it will be played nearly daily! Thank you Guitar Center!
