Introducing | the Taylor GT

MEET THE TAYLOR GRAND THEATER (GT)

This new model fills the gap between the GS Mini and Grand Concert to create a size all its own: the Grand Theatre. 

Taylor adds even more variety to their expansive catalog with the new GT, a small-bodied, short-scale acoustic guitar that establishes a brand new size in between the compact GS Mini and the Grand Concert, their smallest full-size body shape.

The Taylor GT (short for Grand Theater) introduces a new category of acoustic guitar in size, feel and sound. Made in Taylor’s California factory, the GT’s uniquely modern proportions — both in body dimensions and scale length — sit between the size of Taylor’s compact GS Mini and its Grand Concert, the smallest of Taylor’s full-size body shapes. The result is a guitar that’s incredibly fun and easy to play, with a big sonic personality worthy of any pro player’s toolbox.

More and more players are drawn to the playing comfort of smaller acoustic guitars but don’t want to sacrifice tone. This idea spurred Taylor master guitar designer Andy Powers to develop a new guitar that delivers on both fronts — combining the inviting playability of a compact instrument with the rich voice of a full-size, solid-wood guitar. 

The Taylor GT is voiced with new C-Class bracing architecture. The “C” refers to the cantilevered, asymmetrical design, which combines stiffness and flexibility in a way that helps accentuate the lower frequencies to produce a surprisingly warm bass response for its compact dimensions.

This bracing borrows some of the functional benefits of Taylor’s V-Class™ bracing, including greater stability, yielding impressive volume, sustain and intonation that sonically helps the guitar punch above its weight.

The Right Size for the Right Journey.

The new GT, short for Grand Theatre, is essentially a scaled-down Grand Orchestra. Both have nearly the same lower bout and nut widths, but the GT’s body is noticeably shorter, as is its 24-1/8” scale length. Add a solid Sitka spruce top, solid urban ash back and sides, and new C-Class bracing to this exciting design and you have an incredibly comfortable new acoustic that sings with the rich, robust voice of a full-size.
