Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium - Cocobolo
In Stock!

Built from Taylor's Last Sets of Cocobolo

This Taylor Custom Cocobolo Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar was built from Taylor's last stock of cocobolo and will quickly become a sought-after collector's item. The rare cocobolo on the back and sides of the guitar isn't often found in these builds, but many believe its gorgeous copper hues and clear, powerful voice make it the closest sounding tonewood to Brazilian rosewood. And the Custom Cocobolo Grand Auditorium's ES2 electronics translate that beauty in a live environment. This Taylor Custom Cocobolo Grand Auditorium is a one of a kind that is sure to go quick.

Taylor Custom Cocobolo Grand Auditorium Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Exotic cocobolo
  • Bold, powerful tone
  • Taylor's Expression System 2
Exotic cocobolo

Cocobolo is one of the most beautiful tonewoods used in acoustic guitar making. It carries a golden brown coloring that is swirled with darker figure. Only the heartwood of the cocobolo tree from Central America offers these textures, so this is a rare treat to get such a great example. And the wood used on this guitar is from Taylor's last remaining stock of cocobolo. So this guitar is more than a limited edition. There will never be more built from this stock of wood again.

Bold, powerful tone

Cocobolo, though rare itself, is quickly becoming beloved for the tone it exudes. Known to be closest sounding to the cherished Brazilian rosewood, cocobolo is being found on more and more instruments requiring its pure, clear, and strong tonality. You can expect a big but tight-sounding low end with crystal-clear highs that seem to jump off of the fretboard. The cocobolo construction of this Custom Grand Auditorium is huge sounding for the smaller grand auditorium body style.

Taylor's Expression System 2

Taylor's Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup system with three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors that respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp, the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar players have noted that, whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of your guitar.
