While maple is known for its bright tone and fast decay, the Grand Orchestra design enriches maple’s natural tonal palette to produce a full-bodied voice with impressive sustain. Premium-grade Big Leaf maple is paired with a Sitka spruce top featuring a new bracing scheme, and Adirondack spruce bracing adds a tonal turbo boost. The 600 Series appointments also include a Twisted Oval headstock inlay and Expression System® electronics.Grand Orchestra
The newest shape to join the Taylor family unleashes the boldest, richest voice available in a Taylor guitar. Just as the Grand Symphony yields a deeper, more powerful voice than the Grand Auditorium, the Grand Orchestra stands out as a more robust alternative to the Grand Symphony. The GO shape features a slightly bigger footprint and a deeper body, which helps produce a potent low-end response. Under the hood, a new bracing scheme optimizes the movement of the soundboard to produce louder, more complex tone with incredible sustain. What separates the Grand Orchestra from other big-bodied guitars is how balanced the tone is from top to bottom, especially given its brawny bass. And unlike other big-body guitars that require an aggressive attack to get the top moving, the GO is responsive to a light touch, rewarding players who have a dynamic playing style. If you crave a guitar sound that’s brimming with power and rich detail, the Grand Orchestra won’t disappoint. From big cowboy chords to lush fingerstyle arrangements, the Grand Orchestra might be the most expressive and versatile big guitar you ever play.Features:
