This limited edition GSe Grand Symphony 12-string model comes with a Sitka spruce top, AA maple flame maple back and sides, highlighted by figured koa binding, black/white/black purfling, a paua rosette and peghead logo, as well as Tayor's own "Cindy" inlay. When you need to plug in for less intimate performances, Taylor's built-in Expression System 2 electronics will ensure you sound is accurate and true. Other appointments include a hard rock maple neck and heel with a scarf joint, a three-piece standard wedge, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, and Gotoh Gold tuners. The tobacco sunburst stain is covered by a high-quality gloss finish. Includes a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case.
The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful 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.
Expression System 2
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor' ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor' proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor' custom-designed œprofessional audio-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
