Summary: This is Taylor's reimagined maple/spruce Grand Orchestra, now voiced with V-Class bracing and updated with new aesthetic appointments. Maple’s sonic transparency allows the expressive nuances of the individual player to come through. V-Class architecture is the perfect sonic engine to harness the body's large air capacity. The result is incredible touch sensitivity and impeccable intonation with a deeper, powerful sound. New aesthetic elements include a beautiful Antique Blonde shading, "Mission" inlay pattern inspired by the facades of California's Spanish missions, and maple binding accented with Koa and ivoroid top trim. This guitar ships in a beautiful deluxe "western floral" hard shell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in excellent condition and shows very little signs of use. There a few very small pencil tip size dents on the back of the body that can be seen in a reflection.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 12’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
