More and more players want the playing comfort of a smaller acoustic guitar without having to sacrifice tone. So Taylor master builder Andy Powers set out to design a new guitar that could deliver on both fronts — combining the inviting feel of a compact instrument with the rich voice of a full-size, all-solid-wood guitar.
Designed from the ground up, the new Taylor GT (short for Grand Theater) introduces a new category of acoustic guitar in size, feel and sound. Crafted on Taylor’s California campus, the GT’s uniquely modern proportions make it super fun and easy to play, with a big sonic personality worthy of any pro player’s toolbox.
- Grand Theater (GT) Body
- Solid spruce top
- Walnut back and sides
- Black stained top with matte finish
- Neo-tropical mahogany neck
- Smoked eucalyptus fretboard
- Black TUSQ nut
- White micarta saddle
- Expression System 2 electronics
- Brown AeroCase
A compact body
Taylor's GT body style borrows the basic body curves of their Grand Orchestra (their largest body style), but is scaled down for comfort. The width at the lower bout is nearly the same as the Taylor Grand Concert, but the GT’s body length is shorter and the body depth is slightly reduced. This creates an accessible feel for all types of players and scenarios, from the couch to the campfire to the concert hall.
A nimble neck
The GT’s unique neck proportions are also scaled for the ultimate in playing comfort. The 24-1/8-inch scale length lies between Taylor's GS Mini and the Grand Concert. The result is light string tension — the same as if you tuned a guitar with a 25-1/2-inch scale length down a half step. The closer fret spacing will help your fret-hand dexterity, while the string spacing at the nut (1-23/32”) finds the sweet spot between 1-11/16” and 1-3/4”.
Rich, robust sound
Featuring all-solid-wood construction, the GT belies its size with a high-octane musical response. The secret sauce is Taylor's C-Class voicing architecture inside the guitar. This innovative design enhances the volume and sustain, while its unique asymmetrical pattern accentuates the lower frequencies. This allows the GT to produce a surprisingly warm bass response for its compact dimensions.
Ready for the stage
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.
Hit the road
Taylor's AeroCase is perfectly matched to provide protection while you transport your guitar between practices, jam sessions and gigs. The AeroCase features a durable, resilient structure made with materials less than one-third the weight of a traditional hardshell guitar case, making it a perfect choice for travel.
