What's special about this item?

Presenting the GTe (Grand Theater) acoustic-electric guitar from Taylor Guitars' master guitar designer Andy Powers. This totally original body shape introduces an amazing guitar that balances a compact design with a full bodied acoustic tone. The guitar is based on Taylor's Grand Orchestra body shape and scaled down to create a shape that sits between the Grand Concert and the GS Mini. All solid wood construction produces full, lush tones boosted by Andy's new C-class bracing design, based on the principles of the award winning V-class bracing.

Hear the GTe for yourself in our exclusive video:

Crafted with solid Urban Ash back and sides sourced from municipal areas, the wood aligns with Taylor's efforts towards increased sustainability while creating a guitar that has the rich, woody sound of an upscale mahogany. The solid spruce top is super versatile, great for fingerpicking and light to moderate strumming. The guitar's short scale length makes it super easy and comfortable to play, and its beautiful, smoked eucalyptus fretboard is attractive and smooth. An ultra-thin finish creates a rootsy vibe while allowing the guitar to breathe and not be hindered sonically. Top it off with onboard stage-ready Expression System 2 electronics and a super sturdy, lightweight Aerocase, and you have a compact guitar with amazing sonic capabilities that is suitable for stage, the couch, and can travel easy if needed.
