Taylor’s Grand Orchestra body produces a rich and powerful yet remarkably balanced sound. Together with this blackwood/spruce wood pairing, players can expect a potent midrange punch with top-end overtone sparkle — somewhere between what you might find in a mahogany 518 and a rosewood 818. The non-cutaway design accentuates the GO’s voluptuous curves, as do the ivoroid binding and shaded edgeburst body (with a matching edgeburst neck). Other aesthetic touches include an ivoroid rosette, ivoroid Century fretboard inlay, gloss-finish body and nickel tuners. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 electronics bring the guitar’s big voice to any amplified setting. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
