This cutaway Grand Auditorium blends Taylor’s most versatile body style with the fundamental focus and meaty midrange of mahogany, emphasized further with the mahogany soundboard. Performance bracing uniquely optimizes the musical output of the body shape to produce more power and volume. From fingerpicking to medium strumming, your acoustic tone will be clear and direct, and it amplifies wonderfully with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup. Among the aesthetic details that complement mahogany’s dark, rich-grained looks are a shaded edgeburst that wraps the entire guitar in neo-vintage warmth and a mix of faux tortoise shell and grained ivoroid trim.
