Taylor's baritone guitars produce a husky voice (tuned to B) with loads of warmth, low-end richness, midrange growl, and treble presence. The lower register will appeal to singers with a lower vocal range, and the guitar's voice adds a complementary acoustic texture for weaving bass lines with another acoustic guitar in a duo setting. The mahogany top on this special edition baritone Grand Symphony evens out the dark, woody, warm character on the low end for a pleasantly balanced response. If you crave a fresh tonal palette to reinvigorate your playing or songwriting, this will make a great addition to your acoustic arsenal. A shaded edgeburst adds extra vintage appeal to the rich-grained mahogany top. Taylor' natural-sounding Expression System 2 pickup will capture that rich baritone depth for live settings.
With a slightly larger footprint than the Grand Auditorium, the GS yields a slightly more potent and dynamic all-around sound. Players can expect deeper bass, thicker trebles, and increased volume and low-end sustain, all without disrupting the tonal balance and clarity of the guitar.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won™t yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
Sapele' tonal output is consistent and balanced across the tonal spectrum, making it compatible with a diverse range of playing styles. It' comparable to mahogany but its higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more top-end shimmer.
Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
