Overview

The Taylor GS6-L Maple/Spruce Grand Symphony Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar features a maple/spruce wood pairing. This combination of body woods with a GS body shape adds up to a truly exceptional tone. The distinctive blend of Big Leaf maple and Sitka spruce creates a bright, crystalline timbre with strong projection and warm overtones. It's a combination that truly "cuts through." This maple GS packs plenty of sonic horsepower, responds well to fast picking runs, and delivers a surprising amount of low end for players who are used to maple™s typically bright, focused tone. If you thought you knew the maple sound, this is one acoustic guitar that just might surprise you.

Grand Symphony (GS)
Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16-1/4" / Body Depth: 4-5/8"
The ultimate Taylor strummer.

The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers Taylor™s boldest, richest acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you'e a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn™t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.

Big Leaf Maple
Origin: Western North America
A dense hardwood, maple's tone is like a laser beam ” very focused ” and dominant on the fundamental. Often described as having a "bright" sound, maple has fewer overtones than other medium-density woods, resulting in quicker note decay. This makes it a preferred guitar wood for live performance settings with a band ” especially with bass, drums and electric guitar ” because it cuts through a mix well, allows the acoustic sound to be heard, and is less prone to feedback issues. It has some midrange, and a lot more treble sparkle than rosewood.

Goes Well With: Live band performances, recording, lead players who like clean articulation and note definition, 12-strings, players with dark bone tone.
