Introducing the Taylor Custom #12447: Grand Symphony 8-String, an exceptional one-off custom guitar that embodies the legendary craft skills Taylor guitars are renowned for. This unique instrument is meticulously crafted with precision and attention to detail, making it a standout choice for discerning musicians.

The body of this custom guitar features solid Walnut for back and sides,  yielding bright treble notes and a present midrange. The top is made of solid Sitka Spruce, the soundboard choice for most guitars that produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles. The guitar utilises a unique Sitka bracing system designed specifically for baritones. The Western Sunburst Gloss finish adds a rustic touch to the overall aesthetic.

The neck is constructed from Mahogany with a Standard Carve profile, providing a comfortable playing experience. The 27" scale length, Ebony fretboard, and GA LTD Abalone inlays contribute to the guitar's exceptional tone and visual appeal - as well as the stunning Abalone and Paua rosette. The hardware includes Taylor Smoked Nickel Mini tuners, an Ebony bridge with matching pins, a Micarta saddle, and a TUSQ nut.

For those seeking versatility in amplification, the Taylor Expression System 2 is a game-changer. This innovative system captures a wider range of the guitar's dynamic characteristics, thanks to its behind-the-saddle pickup with three strategically positioned sensors. Paired with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp, the ES2 delivers exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness for live performances, recording, or use with acoustic amplifiers. Unlike traditional under-saddle pickups, the ES2's unique design allows for a more natural response to the guitar's energy, resulting in a fuller and more authentic sound.

In summary, the Taylor Custom #12447: Grand Symphony 8-String is a masterpiece that combines premium materials, expert craft skills, and cutting-edge electronics. Whether you're a seasoned performer or a recording artist, this one-of-a-kind custom guitar is designed to meet the highest standards of quality and performance.
