From Our Research Team:
An Incredibly Classy Custom TaylorThe Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar gives you everything that Taylor excels at in one highly-collectible instrument - amazing craftsmanship, top-notch tonewoods, masterful attention to detail, and outstanding playability. One look at the Custom Grand Auditorium should tell you that you've found something special. Taylor chose cocobolo sapwood for the back and sides, with a rich and lustrous look that's a perfect compliment to the defined grain of the "sinker" redwood top. And with Taylor's Expression System electronics built right in, you'll be able to capture every nuance of your performance when playing live or recording. And since it's a custom design from Taylor, the Custom Grand Auditorium is truly a once in a lifetime acoustic-electric guitar.
Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
Incredible appointments and detailing
As a one-off instrument, Taylor paid extra attention to every nook and cranny of the Custom Grand Auditorium - and it shows! Mother-of-pearl headstock inlays match the classic look of the Gotoh 510 antique gold tuners. A stunning tree inlay adorns the ebony fretboard where the mahogany neck meets the body at the 14th fret. And the vibrant appeal of the redwood top and cocobolo back and sides is defined by the ebony body binding, which is further enhanced with fiber purfling.
An astonishing tonewood combination - redwood and figured cocobolo
Few acoustic guitars can boast so rich a tonewood combination as the Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium. It features a magnificently figured cocobolo back and sides that's absolutely captivating to look at. But good looks aren't all this exquisite tonewood has to offer you. Its deeply resonant bass, bright highs, and incredible projection make it the perfect choice for the already-robust sound of the Grand Auditorium body style.
Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve. Unlike standard onboard electronics, the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the design of the Custom Grand Auditorium from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
