A full-sounding combination of maple and spruce body woods.

This left-handed maple GS6-LFT packs plenty of sonic horsepower, responds well to fast picking runs, and delivers a surprising amount of low end for players who are used to maples typically bright, focused tone.

Grand Symphony

The Grand Symphony shape joined the Taylor line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful 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 youre a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesnt 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
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.

Forward Shifted bracing with Relief Rout
The GS6-LFT's bracing shifts the X forward (closer to the soundhole) and incorporates Taylors patented relief rout, a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin ” it œloosens up the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. These refinements enable more of the top to vibrate, enhancing the tone.
