The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Taylor GS8e Non Cutaway Steel String Natural, 2012


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Taylor GS8e was built from 2007 to 2012 and used a non-cutaway Grand Symphony body design, pairing a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the sides, back and head plate. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard. The Taylor ES (Expression System) pickup and preamp set are factory stock.

This Taylor GS8e dates to July 20, 2012, following the Taylor Serial Number Decoder page

It is in great condition, with only the lightest wear to the finish and frets.

Here’s the builder on the Taylor GS8e and the Grand Symphony body shape:

“The non-cutaway Taylor GS8e pairs Indian rosewood with Sitka spruce for a big, bold tone. Strummers and pickers with an aggressive attack will love the Grand Symphony’s combination fullness, volume and sustain.

Yet for such a robust voice, the Taylor GS8e is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.”
