The first pair of acoustic guitars released with the new GT body shape features the GTe Urban Ash and its all-acoustic counterpart. Made with backs and sides of solid Urban Ash responsibly sourced from Shamel ash trees in need of removal from California municipal areas, these models generate a punchy midrange voice balanced with crisp highs and a rich low end boosted by our new C-Class bracing, developed specifically for the GT body shape. A solid spruce top rounds out the body and adds overall articulation, while the built-in ES2 pickup and preamp provide faithful sound for amplified situations and recording sessions.
Featuring all-solid-wood construction, the GT belies its size with a high-octane musical response. The secret sauce is our new C-Class voicing architecture inside the guitar. Inspired by our acclaimed V-Class bracing, the C-Class design enhances the volume and sustain, while its unique asymmetrical pattern accentuates the lower frequencies. This allows the GT to produce a surprisingly warm bass response for its compact dimensions. The sound is sweet, focused and responsive - perfect for recording or plugging in with our ES2 pickup.
The GT's unique neck proportions are also scaled for the ultimate in playing comfort. The 24-1/8-inch scale length lies between our GS Mini and the Grand Concert. The result is light string tension - the same as if you tuned a guitar with a 25-1/2-inch scale length down a half step. The closer fret spacing will help your fret-hand dexterity, while the string spacing at the nut 1-23/32-in finds the sweet spot between 1-11/16-in and 1-3/4-in.
The new GT body style borrows the basic body curves of our Grand Orchestra our largest body style, but they're scaled down for comfort. The width at the lower bout is nearly the same as the Taylor Grand Concert, but the GT's body length is shorter, and the body depth is slightly reduced. This creates an accessible feel for all types of players and scenarios, from the couch to the campfire to the concert hall.
