New Grand Theater Models
Meet the Taylor GTe Mahogany
The new Taylor GTe Mahogany provides a rustic style and a bluesy feel that brings some new flavor to the familiar GT body shape.
The latest expansion to the GT family serves up a fresh look and feel with all-mahogany construction and rootsy musical character. Sonically, the mahogany will produce a woody midrange with a strong focus on the fundamental note, with a balanced attack thanks to mahogany’s natural compression effect as a top wood. Inside, C-Class bracing dials up more power in the bass range, producing a surprisingly rich low end for a smaller guitar. The player-friendly body includes chamfered edges, while the comfortable 24-1/8” scale length creates a relaxed handfeel that makes fretting chords and bending notes easy on the fingers.
Walnut / Spruce GTe Blacktop
Featuring an eye-catching blacktop this new GT model debuts a new look and sound featuring walnut back and sides.
Taylor is excited to give its newest body style, the compact GT (Grand Theater), a fresh look and sound in the form of a blacktop (spruce) edition featuring solid American walnut back and sides. Tonally, walnut showcases a woody, focused midrange and, together with the GT body and C-ClassTM bracing, yields a punchy, responsive voice that amplifies and records exceptionally well and cuts through in a mix with other instruments. Model details include comfortable chamfered body edges, a contrasting maple/black rosette, 4mm Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a thin matte-finish body with a black top, a black pickguard and Taylor Mini nickel tuners.
GT 611e LTD
Blending Taylor's recent GT body shape innovation with a warmer, fuller take on the traditionally bright maple sound, the GT 611e LTD offers a dazzling aesthetic profile to match its rich acoustic tone. Figured Big Leaf maple back and sides pair with a spruce top and C-Class bracing for an unexpectedly robust low-end response balanced by crisp trebles and a transparent quality that highlights each player's individual style.
In true limited-edition form, this model gleams with an Antique Blonde finish that showcases maple's natural beauty, making it an appealing option for playing under the spotlight. But with its clean sound and bold projection, it's also a great choice for recording. Whatever your path, the GT 611e LTD offers a comfortable, visually stunning option to inspire your creativity.
New American Dream
The newest Grand Pacific to join the American Dream Series. This new Taylor sounds very unique and offers a roosty aesthetic with a gorgeous solid flame big leaf maple top, back, and sides. Available now for pre-order and expected in very soon. Reserve yours today or hit the 'Notify Me' button on the product page to be alerted when it gets here!
Just like the debut of the Grand Pacific body style revealed a different flavor of Taylor sound — warm and seasoned, with notes that blend smoothly together — the new AD27e Flametop from the American Dream Series leans even farther away from the sound often associated with Taylor. The guitar features a figured maple top, solid maple back sides, and a maple neck, but forget any association of brightness you might have with maple guitars. Between the GP body, maple top, V-Class bracing and the choice of uncoated D’Addario Nickel Bronze strings (.012-.053), master builder Andy Powers has shaped this guitar’s voice into an earthy, midrange-focused sound. By design, the guitar produces fewer overtones, giving it a dry, more muted, slightly mellower sonic texture that will sound right at home in Americana circles and make a great strummer for chunky acoustic rhythm work. Visually, the guitar channels the gritty character of a worn-in pair of boots or jeans with a dusky Woodsmoke finish, shaded edgeburst and satin sheen. Like other American Dream models, the Flametop features chamfered body edges, 4mm dot inlays in Italian acrylic, and onboard ES2 electronics (also available without electronics).
