          The Taylor Custom Red Western Cedar-Red Ironbark Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar offers serious musicians a premium instrument with innovative design and masterful craftsmanship. Featuring V-Class bracing and Taylor's ES2 electronics, this alluring guitar produces a balanced acoustic tone with piano-like clarity and projection when plugged in.

          Premium Woods Create a Sweet, Muscular Tone

          The torrefied Western red cedar top paired with figured Red Ironbark back and sides yields a tone that blends power, clarity and balance. The cedar top provides a sweet, shimmering treble, while the dense Ironbark back and sides add depth and richness, resulting in a bold, muscular sound with piano-like fidelity across the tonal spectrum.

          V-Class Bracing Boosts Resonance

          Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing optimizes the guitar's acoustic response, giving you more volume, sustain and tuning stability. The bracing creates notes that ring out purely without canceling each other out, bringing the entire fingerboard into greater sonic alignment for a profoundly musical experience.

          Plug In and Shape Your Tone

          Taylor's ES2 pickup system lets you amplify your acoustic tone with clarity. Three uniquely positioned pickup sensors capture the nuances of the guitar's sound. Pair the ES2 with Taylor's preamp to access treble, bass and volume controls for shaping your plugged-in tone. Serious musicians will appreciate the versatility and fidelity of the ES2 when performing live or recording in the studio.

          Playability and Comfort to Inspire

          From the smooth ebony fingerboard and cocobolo armrest to the hand-rubbed satin finish, every detail of this guitar's construction is aimed at playability and comfort. The Grand Auditorium body is shaped to balance volume and articulation, reacting dynamically to your playing style. The mahogany neck has an oval profile for a familiar, violin-like feel in your hands.
