Taylor Guitars presents an extensive selection of acoustic body styles, each possessing its distinct sound and feel. It is critical to take into account both comfort and sound when selecting a guitar. The Baby, with its 3/4-sized Dreadnought design, is ideal for young musicians and travelers alike as it produces a rich musical voice despite its petite size.
The GS Mini, a smaller version of the Grand Symphony, is a highly sought-after body style and provides a robust sound in a compact form. The Grand Theater, a slightly larger option than the GS Mini, offers a harmonious blend of comfort and responsiveness with an impressive full-voiced sound. The Big Baby, a classic Dreadnought-style with a reduced footprint and slimmer body depth, offers accessibility.
The Grand Concert, crafted for fingerstyle and light strumming, boasts a compact body that delivers an articulate and sensitive response. The Grand Auditorium, a mid-sized body, is a versatile choice that offers a clear, balanced tonal response and comfortable contours. The Grand Pacific, a round-shouldered Dreadnought, delivers warm, seasoned tone with full-range power. The Dreadnought, a traditional shape, generates powerful sound with deep lows, lively mids, and punchy treble notes. The Grand Symphony, with its exclusive soundport cutaway, creates a symphonic voice with immersive reverb-like effect and remarkable sustain. The Grand Orchestra, the largest and deepest body shape, provides a full-range of powerful sound while still retaining a surprising level of responsiveness to a gentle touch.
When deciding on a Taylor acoustic guitar, comfort should be taken into account as it affects the sound quality. The body proportions also have a significant impact on the guitar's sound, with smaller bodies emphasizing upper-register frequencies and larger bodies providing a deeper voice. Cutaway or non-cutaway options are also available, with a cutaway granting access to upper-register notes.
