Hawaiian koa’s captivating beauty is matched by a tone that blossoms over time, especially in the midrange. Its voice is bright and focused, with warm overtones that slowly emerge, adding sweetness and depth. Premium all-wood appointments, led by the Island Vine fretboard inlay, celebrate the wood’s natural appeal.”

This is a visually stunning guitar and the koa has a ‘shimmer‘ which lends nuances of a 12-string.  We strung it with both John Pierce phosphor bronze 12’s and 13’s.  I preferred the tone of the 13’s but the playability of the 12’s. Depending on the final guage desired, a set-up may be necessary.

About the Grand Symphony body:

Body Length:  20”

Body Width:  16-1/4”

Body Depth:  4-5/8”

In Taylor’s words:

“We nicknamed this body style ‘The Big Bold Strummer’ because of its powerful low-midrange emphasis.  The magic of the GS is its strong resonance and the way it comes across through the tactile experience of playing it.  Consider that an acoustic guitar is a wooden box that is  optimized to resonate and sustain.  When we play a larger-bodied guitar with more bass and volume, it pushes the bass right into our torso.  When playing big, powerful guitars, we don’t just appreciate the fullness of sound as it envelopes us; we also appreciate the physical sensation of being moved by it.”
