Premium tonewoods and appointments you'll appreciate for a lifetime

Spend some time looking at the hi-res photos of the Grand Symphony Purple Heart in the Sweetwater Guitar Gallery, and you'll see this is truly a collection-worthy instrument. Beyond the exotic-looking Purple Heart back and sides, details like the bloodwood binding and fiber purfling put this guitar in a class of its own.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of the Grand Symphony Purple Heart.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the Grand Symphony Purple Heart, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the Grand Symphony Purple Heart a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Taylor Grand Symphony Purple Heart Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Acoustic-electric guitar with Purple Heart back and sides for a unique look
  • Clear, well-balanced tone from the solid Engelmann spruce top
  • Ebony for the fretboard and bridge was chosen specifically for its extra-smoky look
  • Exceptional plugged-in tone from the Expression System 2 electronics
  • Hard case included
It's not often you see a guitar like this Taylor Grand Symphony Purple Heart!
