Description & Specs

Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium
The Taylor Custom program makes it easy to turn the Taylor of your dreams into a reality, giving you the opportunity to design your own personal signature model, which will stand out as a unique expression of your musical and aesthetic tastes. As a Taylor Custom dealer, Chicago Music Exchange will work with you to help you choose from an assortment of Taylor’s finest tonewoods—including non-standard species and premium grades—as well as a rich palette of feature options and premium appointments that’ll help you bring your distinctive Taylor dream guitar to life!

Hand-Picked Tonewoods
To give CME customers a truly next level Taylor acoustic, CME’s CEO Andrew Yonke and Director of New Product Dan Bordonaro went to the factory, themselves, and hand-selected the top on this Taylor Custom model.

Grand Auditorium
Featuring Cocobolo back and sides, paired with a Lutz Spruce top that’s received an “aged toner” treatment, accented by figured Hawaiian koa binding, Taylor’s medium-sized Grand Auditorium body shape offers balanced highs and supportive lows, making it a versatile choice that’s fit for nearly any playing style. Boasting bold, balanced tone, the Taylor Grand Auditorium provides vibrant, well-defined sound across the entire tonal spectrum, thanks to a more tapered waist than a traditional dreadnought, making the Taylor Grand Auditorium the Swiss Army Knife of Taylor’s body shapes.

V-Class Bracing
The Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium features Taylor’s innovative new V-Class bracing, which lets the soundboard of the guitar vibrate naturally, increasing sustain and overall cohesiveness, and generating additional volume without sacrificing sustain. This design puts the body more in tune with the strings, improving articulation and harmonic alignment,  resulting in a sound that is optimally warm and seasoned, nicely blended, and full of luscious low end without being muddy. 

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.
