Packed with all the tone enhancing improvements in the Taylor 800 Series, this Grand Symphony will give you a louder overall tonal output all while giving you a rich sound from the rosewood. Other body aesthetics also include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl and a marbled fretboard.This Venetian cutaway also comes ready to be amplified with the onboard Expression System 2 electronics.

In Taylors process in getting rid of the generic under-saddle piezo transducers, Taylor added their state of the art Expression System 2 pickups in their acoustic electrics. Not only are the 3 pickups individually calibrated but they are positioned precisely sensors that react organically to the guitars energy as it moves through the saddle. Taylor also has a custom preamp that not only boosts up to 25% of hotter signal but also gives you a more natural sounding acoustic with more range and responsiveness to your play.
