Description

The pairing of mahogany back and sides with a cedar top yields a tone with a strong, clear midrange presence, while the cedar top adds warmth and a bit of overtone bloom that suggests an older, played-in guitar. With the addition of Taylor’s Performance bracing, the overall voice responds with more power and volume. Appointments include faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. A Venetian cutaway offers greater access to the guitar’s upper register, while Taylor’s patented Expression System 2 pickup translates the sonic warmth and detail into a natural-sounding amplified tone.

Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

  • An original Bob Taylor design introduced in 1994
  • Full in the lower register, present in the midrange, and sparkling on the treble strings
  • Our most popular shape and a good place to begin your search

Our most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker’s guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA’s overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be our bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won’t let you down.
