The Taylor Baritone GS8 8-String Acoustic Electric Guitar is designed for playing in a lower register with normal string tension, thanks to a longer 27-inch scale length. Tuned to B (B E A D F# B), the deeper acoustic tone is voiced with the GS body shape and a wood combination of Indian rosewood with Sitka spruce. The Baritone 8 string guitar is a great choice for singers with a lower vocal range or players who favor a detuned sound.
Grand Symphony GS Body
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Taylor Expression System
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies the Baritone GS 8 string guitar with an unrivaled, natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound. It’s your tone. Amplified.
