No Longer Available Taylor GS Custom Maple Sunburst, 2009


Instrument Categories: , ,

This Taylor GS Custom Maple Sunburst dates to March 30, 2009 and is in very good condition with very light play wear. The “GS” represents Grand Symphony, and is Taylor’s second largest “Jumbo” body design, following the Grand Orchestra.   The Grand Symphony was originally designed by Bob Taylor in 2006 and offers a “Rich, piano-like bass, strong midrange, and thick trebles”.

As the name suggests, this non-cutaway Taylor GS Custom Maple was a custom order. Taylor offers quite a bit of customization, particularly through what was known as their BTO or ‘Build To Order’ programme. While the GS is still in regular production, Maple is presently unavailable as a choice for the body wood. The Sitka Spruce top is accented with Abalone purfling and rosette ring. Maple is used for the sides and back, and the neck is also solid Maple. The bridge and bound fingerboard are Ebony. The fingerboard position markers are Mother of Pearl dots, while the bridge has a small Abalone inlay.

The finish is a tobacco sunburst and is in very good condition. Being a Taylor, it’s also factory equipped with an ES2 pickup and preamp set; the output jack and battery box are located at the tail for easy access and durability.

This is a reasonably large guitar with a big, full sound with good representation throughout the harmonic range.   It doesn’t feel quite as large as a standard Dreadnought, though the differences are less than an inch.

The original Taylor branded hard shell case is included with they Taylor GS Custom Sunburst.
