The Taylor 2012 GS8-L Rosewood/Spruce Grand Symphony Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar has two tonewoods that represent a classic combination of nearly universal appeal. With a Sitka spruce top, Taylor adds a touch of crispness to the Indian rosewoods big, bold tone. Indian rosewood seems as if it was created to be on a guitar. The clarity, balance, sustain, excellent bass response, and wonderful coloration and figure are without equal. Paired with Sitka spruce, it is an unstoppable combination.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Gloss Top, Back & Sides
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
Introduced in 2006, the GS is an original design from top to bottom ” and the first new Taylor shape in over a decade. It was a hit right out of the gate. Expect acoustic power with every note, with deep, piano-like bass, rich mids and clear, balanced highs ” and plenty of volume. Its a whole new flavor of Taylor tone.
