A bold 12-string made of Big Leaf maple and Sitka spruce.
The Taylor 2012 GS6-12 Maple/Spruce Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic Guitar is part of acoustic guitar lore, and a major part of Taylor history. Once you hear it, you won't forget the energetic sound of this maple GS acoustic guitar. Full, lush, and clear, with Taylor's signature 12-string playability, the GS6-12 is a guitar you'll want in your collection.
The GS shape is well-suited for a 12-string guitar, yielding a beautiful, rich low end, an even balance from low to high, and an overall resonance that 12-string players will love. Maple is always a compatible wood for 12-strings, as its clear focus adds extra definition to the double-course sound.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16 1/4" / Body Depth: 4 5/8"
The ultimate Taylor strummer.
The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers Taylor’s boldest, richest acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.
Big Leaf Maple
Origin: Western North America
A dense hardwood, maple's tone is like a laser beam — very focused — and dominant on the fundamental. Often described as having a "bright" sound, maple has fewer overtones than other medium-density woods, resulting in quicker note decay. This makes it a preferred guitar wood for live performance settings with a band — especially with bass, drums and electric guitar — because it cuts through a mix well, allows the acoustic sound to be heard, and is less prone to feedback issues. It has some midrange, and a lot more treble sparkle than rosewood.
Goes Well With: Live band performances, recording, lead players who like clean articulation and note definition, 12-strings, players with dark bone tone.
