Full sound from a full-size guitar with the added bonus of high-quality Taylor electronics.
Players who crave a huge, "wall-of-sound" 12-string voice will love the 858e. The big-bodied rosewood/spruce Grand Orchestra serves up a rich and powerful sound, yet also responds well to a lighter attack, putting tremendous dynamic range at the player’s fingertips. Together with the other tone-enhancing attributes of Taylor’s 800 Series — protein glues, thin finish, optimized wood thicknesses and more — lively strummers will have no problem making their voice heard. Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics will bring all that lush sonic detail into an amplified setting.
Hardshell case included.
Taylor’s biggest body shape redefines the playing experience of a big acoustic guitar by blending power and complexity with balance and responsiveness. Unlike other large-bodied guitars, the GO not only welcomes strong strumming, but also responds readily to players with a lighter touch.
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.
Indian rosewood’s sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum has made it one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods. Its deep lows can assert a throaty growl, while bright, sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.
Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
