Limited Editon tonewoods, a popular body shape, narrow neck and Taylor ES-N electronics.

The pairing of Tasmanian blackwood and Western Red cedar on this nylon-string Fall Limited beautifully complements its nylon evocative tone. Blackwood marries elements of koa, mahogany and rosewood, while the warmth of a cedar top will invite plenty of fingerstyle explorations. Wood-rich appointments include creamy Rock maple as a back mini wedge and for the binding and œfishbone-style rosette. Small dot inlays and a satin-finish back and sides support a tastefully organic aesthetic.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4-5/8"
Taylor's most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994, bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker' guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA' overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be the bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won™t let you down.

Tasmanian Blackwood
Origin: Australia
Tasmanian blackwood is an acacia wood species that' a close cousin of Hawaiian koa. Though it might not match koa' cachet in terms of exotic beauty, its tonal range is similar, and visually it often exhibits some of koa' same character traits. Blackwood also is sourced from forests that are responsibly managed, making it a sustainable wood for guitar making. Blackwood takes koa' basic tonal profile (a blend of mahogany' meaty midrange and maple' brightness) and adds a splash of rosewood' overtone bloom.

Goes Well With: Different playing styles, depending on the body style and top pairing. A cedar top will help bring out a springy, woody, warm low end with a rich overtone complement that fingerstylists may really enjoy. Stronger strummers and flatpickers will match up well with a bigger body and might be better suited with a spruce top.

ES-N
Like the the ES-T, The ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer, but the preamp design and tone controls were customized to complement the nylon-string voice. The standard ES control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic. Installed on nylon-string models.
