Taylor’s rosewood/spruce 12-string guitars respond with an inspiring tapestry of bold, shimmering sound. The Grand Symphony 956ce showcases a wealth of design refinements that raise the 12-string bar even higher in terms of volume, depth, tonal definition and sustain. A sleek, easy-playing Taylor neck, together with a hand-crafted armrest on the body, make this 12-string a sheer joy to strum, while rosewood’s complexity is embellished further without sacrificing clarity and balance across the tonal spectrum. Exquisite aesthetic touches include beautifully calibrated ebony binding and koa purfling, along with colorful abalone shell inlays and trim. Other key features include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
