This nylon-string Grand Auditorium balances sapele’s bright and lively tone with the naturally mellow flavors of the nylon sound. It’s a great option for players who favor the comfort and intimate feel of a small-body acoustic and crave modern steel-string features like a cutaway and an onboard pickup on a nylon-string guitar. Appointments include black binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway, comes equipped with Taylor’s ES-N pickup, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
The most versatile and popular of Taylor’s guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It’s responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.
