Overview

These days, many guitar players are discovering Bob Taylor's newest, boldest acoustic sound for the first time. The reaction has become fairly predictable: love at first strum.

As with the GA, Bob had a fresh sound in mind that he felt he could deliver through a new shape. The challenge was to create a bolder flavor of Taylor's signature tone without sacrificing balance or crimping the clarity. The deeper, fuller, louder Taylor GS-K-12 Acoustic-Electric Guitar boasts a rich, piano-like bass; girthy midrange; and thicker trebles. The extra horsepower of this Grand Symphony series instrument invites aggressive strumming and picking, and even if some tradition-bound bluegrassers might initially resist embracing a non-dreadnought shape, the sound has converted many serious flatpickers and flat-out floored scads of acoustic lovers across a full spectrum of musical styles.

The power of the Taylor GS Acoustic-Electric Guitar is balanced by clear articulation and responsiveness to a lighter attack that welcomes fingerpicking, yielding a broad swath of dynamic range. Within that range, a rich, nuanced topography of expression is waiting to be explored.

The depth of tone in this 12-string guitar conveys a sense of instant maturity among players who are attuned to the ways a guitar tends to open up after an initial period of being played. "What I loved most about the GS," Acoustic Guitar magazine's Teja Gerken wrote in a review of the GS, "was its openness and the complexity of its fundamental tones”both of which belie its young age."
