Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.
Grand Symphony

Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16 1/4" / Body Depth: 4 5/8"

Rich and robust, the GS yields lots of volume and dynamic range

  • Designed by Bob Taylor in 2006

  • Rich, piano-like bass, strong midrange, and thick trebles

  • Strong volume when strumming or flatpicking, and responsive clarity with a light attack.

The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.

With a slightly larger footprint than the Grand Auditorium, the GS yields a slightly more potent and dynamic all-around sound. Players can expect deeper bass, thicker trebles, and increased volume and low-end sustain, all without disrupting the tonal balance and clarity of the guitar.
