“The newest shape to join the Taylor family unleashes the boldest, richest voice available in a Taylor.  What began as a redesign of the Taylor Jumbo evolved into an entirely new shape and sound offering Taylor’s biggest, most complex voice.  The Grand Orchestra shape features a slightly bigger footprint and a deeper body, creating more air volume.  This helps produce a deeper low-end response that players will be able to feel against their bodies, at times calling to mind a baritone guitar.  A new bracing scheme optimizes the movement of the soundboard to produce louder, more complex tone with greater sustain.”

Personally I loved the low end on this guitar which had a solid presence but balanced gracefully with the trebles.  This guitar played with ease and has great intonation. (we strung it with John Pierce 12’s)

About the Grand Orchestra body:

Body Length:  20-5/8”

Body Width:  16-3/4”

Body Depth:  4-13/16”

The newest body shape is the largest, most powerful shape available from Taylor.  What began as a rethinking of the traditional Jumbo turned into an all-new guitar that delivers the engrossing power that has drawn players to larger body shapes for years.  What separates the GO from the Jumbo is that you have a similar size and frequency spread but with a more balanced overall tone.

Maybe the biggest improvement is that the GO is much more player friendly than traditional large-body guitars.  A small soundboard requires less energy to get it moving, and larger soundboards require the player to play harder to excite the top.  The new Grand Orchestra offers the benefit of a huge-sounding guitar without needing to hammer on it to make great music.  It’s much more sensitive than the traditional Jumbo.
