The mid-sized Taylor Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994, bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and a Grand Concert. While the full-size Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker’s Guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstyle playing, the Taylor Grand Auditorium was designed to deliver on both fronts.
The versatile body shape of the Taylor Grand Auditorium produces an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle picking and strumming, yet with an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that are suited to both flatpicking and fingerstyle playing.
The Taylor Grand Auditorium's overall presence works well with other instruments, both in the studio and on stage. Singer-songwriters have embraced this model as the portable size allows the possibility of composing and traveling with one Guitar. Many musicians want a single Guitar that is versatile enough to handle a wide range of styles, which is why the Grand Auditorium continues to be an incredibly popular shape. The Taylor Grand Auditorium is a great all-purpose Guitar.
Taylor's 200 Series models were designed around the fundamentals of a great Guitar-playing experience to give you clear, balanced tone and great intonation. Features include a cutaway body and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics.
