An array of nuanced voicing refinements have infused this Taylor Grand Symphony — already known for having a powerful sound — with even more tonal horsepower, extra low-end rumble, and a richer overall response, all without sacrificing balance or top-end articulation. A comprehensive aesthetic makeover preserves the status of our 900 Series as our ultra-premium class of rosewood guitars, featuring intricate appointments. A contoured armrest showcases the highest level of Taylor craftsmanship and offers players an elegant and ergonomic feature that makes strumming and picking more comfortable than ever. Aesthetic details include a smooth fusion of natural materials — wood and shell — in the form of ebony binding, koa purfling, and a mix of abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay and trim work. Additional features include a Florentine cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup for superb amplified tone. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
