View Full Description
The Grand Symphony body shape joined Taylor's line in 2006, resembling a Grand Auditorium style with larger physical dimensions including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. This increased size delivers a rich, powerful voice that's perfect for both strummers and fingerpickers alike. The Grand Symphony also has the ability to remain clear and responsive, with an almost piano-like bass, crisp midrange and shimmering highs that blend seamlessly.
Baritone Scale Size
When it came to the baritone model, Taylor have given the 326e a lower B tuning to give players a deep, rich voice but still retain a normal string tension to provide a familiar playing experience. Its 27-inch scale length is perfect for musicians wanting a guitar that can accompany low vocal ranges or desire a d-tuned sound.
The Mahogany top wood features a stiffness that initially translates into a bright tone, but the more a Mahogany-top guitar is played, the more it develops overtones that contribute to a fuller and richer sound. The body of this acoustic guitar is made from high-quality Sapele, an alternative tonewood that Taylor began using over a decade ago. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as African Mahogany due to the close resemblance, Sapele is highly sustainable and tonally it delivers similarly to Mahogany, with a little added treble and a balanced tone that is perfect for a range of playing applications.
Expression System 2
The Taylor Expression System 2 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 proprietary 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. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
