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.

Taylor GT Sitka/Urban Ash w/AeroCase
Designed to produce a stronger low-end response than a guitar its size would normally deliver, Taylor’s GT Series Sitka/Urban Ash models introduce a new category to the world of acoustic guitar shapes with a scaled-down version of Taylor’s “Jumbo” body shape, with a fast, vibrant attack imparted by the Urban Ash paired with a solid spruce top. 

GT Series—Sitka/Urban Ash
More than just a new body style for Taylor guitars, the Grand Theater (GT) shape represents a whole new category of guitar. With an even shorter scale than the Grand Concert, the GT features an asymmetrical C-Class bracing—which employs ideas adapted from Taylor’s V-class bracing—to produce a stronger low-end response than a guitar its size would normally deliver. Lightweight like mahogany, the fast, vibrant attack of the Urban Ash paired with a solid spruce top gives these GT series models a dramatic, wide-awake sound that lends an almost flamenco guitar–like character and quick responsiveness. 

Grand Theater
Sporting the curves of the Grand Orchestra (Taylor’s “Jumbo” body style) scaled into uniquely compact proportions—including a shorter, 24 1/8-inch scale length for a slinky and responsive handfeel—Taylor’s Grand Theater (GT) body shape employs C-Class bracing to pack the tonal depth of a full-size guitar into a form that’s easy to play. With dimensions that fall between the travel-friendly GS Mini and Grand Concert body shapes, the GT represents Taylor’s reimagination of the parlor-style guitar for the present day.

Taylor GTe Sitka/Urban Ash ES2 
Designed to produce a stronger low-end response than a guitar its size would normally deliver, Taylor’s GT Series Sitka/Urban Ash ES2 models introduce a new category to the world of acoustic guitar shapes with a scaled-down version of Taylor’s “Jumbo” body shape, with a fast, vibrant attack imparted by the Urban Ash paired with a solid spruce top. Plus, Taylor’s ES2 electronics provide ample tonal control and responsiveness.

GT Series—Sitka/Urban Ash
More than just a new body style for Taylor guitars, the Grand Theater (GT) shape represents a whole new category of guitar. With an even shorter scale than the Grand Concert, the GT features an asymmetrical C-Class bracing—which employs ideas adapted from Taylor’s V-class bracing—to produce a stronger low-end response than a guitar its size would normally deliver.

With dimensions that fall between the travel-friendly GS Mini and Grand Concert body shapes, the GT represents Taylor’s reimagination of the parlor-style guitar for the present day.

ES2 Electronics
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) delivers the latest technology in Taylor acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 system is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, featuring three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The new positioning enables the piezo pickup’s crystals to respond more naturally to the guitar’s energy as it is transferred through the saddle, with three pickup sensors installed behind the saddle, through the bridge, with three tiny Allen screws that calibrate the position of the sensors in relation to the saddle. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed preamp, this ES2 system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.

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.
