    Brilliant And Beautiful - The Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium Venetian Cutaway Acoustic With East Indian Rosewood Body And A Sinker Redwood Top

    This is a very special Grand Auditorium build that has a uniquely attractive vibe. Tonally, the redwood top favors the warm overtones of cedar with a little extra brightness and headroom, and it's back and sides of East Indian rosewood offer the player sweeping frequency range and strength at both ends of the tonal spectrum. Its deep lows like a throaty growl; it's treble notes ring out. This model offers comfortable ergonomic contours that include a beveled armrest and body edge treatment.

    The beautiful sinker redwood for this model's top shows off a rich variegation within it's grain - the natural result of colors uniquely imparted from the silt and the mineral-rich waters in Northern California. These Sinker Redwood soundboards have been sliced from huge old-growth redwood logs reclaimed from the rivers of Northern California, where they’ve lain in the depths - in some cases for more than a century. The age and sheer size of these redwood trees translates into a tight grain with nice cross-grain stiffness, so it tends to a fairly bold response. There's that brilliance, but still nested within warmer overtones reminiscent to those of cedar. Redwood has been characterized by Taylor as the "cedar on steroids." 

    The Taylor ES pickup systems build seamlessly into the design of the guitar - an integrated pickup system unlike any other. From the design and location of both body and string sensors, to the voicing of the preamp, the ES is fully optimized for sound. Elegant design which includes the non-intrusive control knobs also preserves the inherent aesthetics of this acoustic instrument.
