Price: Discontinued / Series: 900

This gorgeous rosewood/spruce Grand Symphony from our 900 Series blends a rich, bold acoustic tone profile with sublime Taylor craftsmanship. Premium voicing enhancements embellish the tonal response of the Grand Symphony’s full-bodied sound with extra sonic horsepower and low end, without overshadowing the brilliant top-end articulation. On this edition, a tobacco sunburst top beautifully underscores the sparkling abalone and koa inlays, including the rosette, edge trim (including a border around the fretboard extension), and the inside of the hand-sculpted beveled ebony armrest, designed to enhance the playing comfort. Another slice of meticulous craftsmanship is the sharp Florentine-style cutaway, featuring an elegant hand-bent scoop. Additional details include Gotoh 510 tuners for smooth tuning control, abalone/pearl Ascension fretboard inlays, and Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
