Acoustic Guitar Body Shapes

Taylor offers five full-size guitar body shapes. Each body’s unique dimensions help define its fundamental voice to give it a distinctive tonal personality. Typically, a smaller body will yield a more controlled voice with more upper-end chime, while a bigger body will produce a louder voice with more low-end depth. Most body styles are available either with or without a cutaway.

Grand Concert Guitar Body

Taylor’s smallest body. An intimate feel with a focused voice. Great for fingerstyle.

Popular Models: 562ce, 712ce, 812ce

Grand Auditorium Guitar Body

Taylor’s signature shape is the most versatile. It makes a great all-purpose guitar.

Popular Models: 614ce, 714e, 814ce

Grand Pacific Guitar Body

A round-shoulder version of the dreadnought, the Grand Pacific produces warm, balanced tone with plenty of low-end power and clarity.
