Taylor’s bold-voiced Grand Symphony projects a strong lower midrange emphasis and pairs well with mahogany’s strong, focused tone. Rootsy strummers and pickers will love the blend of power and articulation. A black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay tastefully convey mahogany’s time-honored heritage. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup.
