An evolving tone that rewards more and more over time in the most popular Taylor body.
The Taylor 2012 GA-Ke-L Koa/Spruce Grand Auditorium Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar showcases a different appointment package than Taylor’s other acoustic-electric models. Ivoroid binding applies a time-honored acoustic touch, while sparkling abalone outlines the tops and forms the rosette. This model comes standard with a Sitka spruce top. For an extra vintage look, a shaded edgeburst is offered as a standard model option.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA-Ke is offered in Taylor’s signature shape and embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic. The mid-size Grand Auditorium falls between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. The shape produces an original acoustic voice that is 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’s overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage.
A tropical hardwood, koa's tone blends the midrange of mahogany with the top end of maple. Due to its density, a new koa guitar tends to start out sounding a little bright and tight, somewhat like maple. The more a koa guitar is played, the more the sound opens up, expanding the midrange and rewarding the player with a richer, sweeter, more resonant tone.
Taylor’s groundbreaking Expression System (ES) was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar. The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls — volume, bass and treble.
