Grand Auditorium Cutaway with Tasmanian Blackwood and Mahogany Top with V-Class Bracing and Taylor ES-2 Pickup System
From the Taylor website:
"This darkly alluring cutaway Grand Auditorium boasts unique visual appeal thanks to its mahogany top, and theres sonic magic under the hood as well. Our groundbreaking V-Class bracing enhances the volume, sustain and projection, bringing out even more of the natural midrange focus of its Tasmanian blackwood back and sides. While the natural compression of the hardwood mahogany top tends to even out the response across the tonal spectrum, the V-Class design boosts the dynamic range, especially in the upper register, and the in-tuneness of the notes everywhere along the fretboard is wonderfully consistent. All of these nuances add up to a versatile choice for gigging, practicing or recording across multiple playing styles. The dusky hues of the mahogany top project a rootsy vibe, accented by a shaded edgeburst, black binding, a matching pickguard, and muted satin-finish sheen."
