The Taylor GT 811e is a prime example of Taylor's continual dedication to refinement, and boasts a combination of excellent playability and the dazzling sparkle and warmth that only a Rosewood and Spruce tonewood combination can provide.

New Grand Theatre Shape

Taylor's Grand Concert model was originally designed to offer players a true performers guitar that was smaller than a full sized-dreadnought, but with a big voice that belies its stature.

Now, Taylor have taken the design a step further with the Grand Theatre - a smaller bodied, shorter-scaled acoustic that sits between a Grand Concert and a GS Mini in terms of size.

To compliment this new body shape and size, Taylor have also developed the C-Class bracing system, which hels to boost the guitar's bass response, giving you the kind of warmth and presence you'd never associate with a guitar this small.

Premium Quality Construction

For this guitar to deliver a combination of comfort and rich, solid-wood tone, Taylor have opted for the classic tonewood pairing of Solid Sitka Spruce and Solid Indian Rosewood.

Whilst the Spruce Top provides plenty of clarity and projection, the Rosewood back and sides offers a rich and well-balanced voice, overall resulting in what is - without a doubt - the most popular guitar tonewood combination of the past century.

In addition to this, the model has been appointed to match the rest of the 800 Series guitars, with mapl binding and black purfling, a single-ring abalone rosette, thin gloss finish to the entire body, and even mother-of-pearl fingerboard and headstock inlays.

Expression System 2

At the heart of the Taylor 811e you'll find the innovative ES2 pickup and preamp. This incredbile electronics system offers a more dynamic range of acoustic sound than ever before!

Simply plug your Taylor 811e into a front of house PA system, your favourite acoustic amp, or even directly into recording software, and you'll be guaranteed a faithful conveyance of your guitar's gorgeous tone.

In other words, the Taylor GT 811e would make an excellent centrepiece to any players collection.
