Get Great Looks and Richly Compelling Tone - The Taylor Custom GA Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Quilted Maple With Sitka Spruce Top

Imagine a Taylor guitar that's uniquely yours, brought to life with Taylor's legendary craftsmanship. This stunning custom Grand Auditorium guitar features a transparent blue/purple over teal stain finish over an AA-quality set of quilted maple, topped with solid Sitka spruce. Adding to its significant visual appeal are white plastic binding for striking lines, Azurite rosette, and chrome Gotoh 510 tuners, along with a smooth Venetian cutaway.

Traditionally known for having a focused tone with a fast note decay that cuts through a mix, Taylor's maple guitars were revoiced for 2015 to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness, while retaining maple's naturally clear, linear qualities. The clarity of the high end is still there, but the bottom end has been extended.

The result is a more multi-dimensional sound that gives players the kind of musical versatility of other classic tonewoods, making their maple models a compelling choice as a primary guitar, not just a stage guitar. Their maple guitars are voiced to be very reflective of the player's technique, so a player with a dynamic playing style or someone who likes to vary their picking attack will appreciate how easily those playing nuances come through in the tonal response.

The Taylor ES pickup systems build seamlessly into the design of the guitar - an integrated pickup system unlike any other. From the design and location of both body and string sensors to the voicing of the preamp, the ES is fully optimized for sound. Elegant design which includes the non-intrusive control knobs also preserves the inherent aesthetics of this acoustic instrument.
