A Diminutive Mahogany Acoustic That Truly Sings

Chat with acoustic guitar enthusiasts and they’ll tell you there’s nothing like a Taylor. And the GTe Mahogany Acoustic-electric guitar really brings the best of the company’s engineering to the forefront. Replete with a solid mahogany body and C-Class bracing, this guitar sings with a warm natural sound that’s sure to be beloved by guitarists of ranging styles. The compact Grand Theater body shape lends itself to easy transportation and comfortable gigging while exuding a powerful voice that belies its diminutive size. Lastly, Taylor’s ES2 electronics tie it all together by bringing your all-mahogany beauty to the studio and the stage with incredibly clear sound.

Meet the Grand Theater

In 2020, Taylor debuted the Grand Theater body shape. Sized between the uber-comfortable GS Mini and Taylor’s classic Grand Concert body style, the Grand Theater offers the perfect blend of power and comfort. It’s capable of a full-sized guitar’s acoustic performance with the comfortable playability of a travel-sized guitar. It has a 24-1/8-inch scale length that gives the strings a softened feel akin to playing down-tuned with a capo on the first fret. You’ll love the feel of the body and the sprightly playing experience. Whether it becomes your go-to stage companion, studio workhorse, or favorite daily driver, the GTe is ready for a lifetime of playing.

C-Class bracing coaxes a big sound out of a small body

If you ask Taylor master builder Andy Powers, a guitar is only as good as its bracing pattern. And with the limited size of the GTe, a new bracing pattern is required to help it reach its full sonic potential. This small guitar introduces C-Class bracing, a proprietary bracing pattern developed to bring out a surprisingly robust bass response despite its size. C-Class bracing uses an asymmetrical, cantilevered design that strikes the perfect balance between stiffness and flexibility. Like Taylor’s groundbreaking V-Class architecture, the GTe’s C-Class bracing increases sustain, improves volume, enhances projection, and sharpens intonation. When you hear it for the first time, you won’t believe that a guitar this small can sound so big.

It’s all about mahogany

Whether you’re gigging, playing in a worship group, or writing a song, mahogany can provide you with warm natural tones that inspire and enthuse. The GTe Mahogany features an all-mahogany construction, yielding a guitar that provides excellent intonation while resisting warping. The woody, open sound lends itself to a wide range of styles, from fingerpicking to rhythm. Given its flat response, it also shines well in the hands of players who favor a lighter touch. And of course, this wood will also charm your audience with its radiant looks.

Plugging in has never sounded this good

The Taylor GTe is a bona fide studio and stage workhorse, thanks to the onboard ES2 electronics. ES2 electronics take advantage of Taylor’s proprietary pickup design. It has a 3-section pickup mounted in the bridge, behind the saddle. Because of its position, the pickup delivers a clear, lifelike acoustic tone each time you plug in. For tone tweaking and sound shaping, the ES2 system has a master volume control and a pair of tone controls. The ES2 electronics and the character of the GTe combine to create a potent tonal combination that will leave you and your audience stunned.
