Price: Discontinued / Series: 2014 Fall Limiteds

Straight-grained blackwood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top yield a dynamic strumming experience on this Grand Symphony limited edition. Blackwood blends the midrange focus of koa or mahogany with the zesty treble overtones typical of rosewood, while the Grand Symphony shape produces an abundance of low-end power, especially with a heavier attack.  Crisp ivoroid binding pops against the shaded edgeburst finish treatment, accentuating the body’s ample curves, including a Venetian cutaway. The guitar comes plug-and-play ready with Taylor’s proprietary Expression System® 2 electronics, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
