This Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium combines the exotic and velvet voice of AA Hawaiian Koa for the top, back and sides, blending the true essence of this wood’s tantalizing visual variegations in the wood grain with the unique voice of this luxurious timber. Together with the body shape they yield a perfect combination for a medium strummer looking for ribbon like tones, to the fingerstyle player looking for true articulation mixed with a perfect balance. The Adirondack bracing enhances the projection of the koa and allows the recoil of the top to enhance the low end and sustain properties.
A hand selected smoked ebony fingerboard provide a character unique to this Taylor treasure, showcasing the real color of the adorned wood. Onboard ES-2 electronics perfectly relay even the most subtle nuances of the guitar’s voice when plugged in to sound reinforcement and the Venetian cutaway provides a modern look while allowing higher fret access. The Gotoh 510 tuners are 21:1 ration for an elegant look and feel. This guitar comes with a Taylor made deluxe hard shell case.
