6-string Acoustic Guitar with Lutz Spruce Top, Indian Rosewood Back and Sides, and Taylor ES2 Electronics - Natural
This is the one that blew us all away at the NAMM Show and we were anticipating greatly to get to play her again. The sound that comes from this body is rather amazing and shocking. There is a sweetness that is produces as well as an almost three dimensional sonic landscape that is created. We almost feel as though there is sound coming from behind our right ear as well as pushing forward. The Builder's Edition guitars our master luthier Andy Powers dream instruments and he hand builds the prototypes until he reaches the level of what he considers to be the best acoustic platform available. We were personally blown away by the rosewood on this piece as there is some gorgeous streaking and great colorizations in the grain. Upon playing her we were again blown away as we were at NAMM. This instrument easily fills the room and the redesigned Grand Symphony guitar from Taylor has a slight cut in the treble side giving a warmer pull to the typically bright spruce and rosewood combo Taylors.
