Taylor’s all-mahogany Grand Auditorium is adept at a full range of playing styles. The mahogany top adds a natural compression to the strong midrange, accommodating snappy pluckers and lively strummers while fitting clearly into a mix with other instruments. It’s also performance-ready with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup. Appointments include a black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and an grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.
