Product Description

The foundation of the acoustic/electric line traces back to Bob Taylor’s first rosewood guitars, which helped establish a modern acoustic guitar sound. This year's model benefits from a major redesign that includes optimized dimensions, different glues, a thinner finish, better strings and the new Expression System pickup and preamp. Contemporary appointments include curly maple binding and a pearl fretboard inlay, which together add a splash of refined style.

What separates the Grand Orchestra from other big-bodied guitars is how balanced the tone is from top to bottom, especially given its brawny bass. And unlike other big-body guitars that require an aggressive attack to get the top moving, the GO is responsive to a light touch, rewarding players who have a dynamic playing style. If you crave a guitar sound that’s brimming with power and rich detail, the Grand Orchestra won’t disappoint. From big cowboy chords to lush fingerstyle arrangements, the Grand Orchestra might be the most expressive and versatile big guitar you ever play.
