Taylor is excited to expand the GT's presence in the Taylor line with two premium-edition rosewood/spruce models that join our flagship 800 Series. The GT's accessible body and neck proportions include a scaled-down Grand Orchestra frame (making it slightly shorter and shallower than the Grand Concert body), with a 24-1/8-inch scale length, lending it a slinky feel down the neck. Together with a nut width of 1-23/32 inches, it strikes an ideal balance of fretting-hand comfort and string spacing.
The GT 811e incorporate a "1" as the third digit to identify the GT body style. Each features back and sides of solid Indian rosewood, along with a solid Sitka spruce top.
Taylor's new C-ClassTM bracing architecture leverages the same foundational concepts as V-Class bracing, improving the volume, sustain and pitch accuracy, with other unique, asymmetrical design elements that enable the GT to coax a surprisingly rich and robust bass response from its compact body dimensions. Between its punchy response and approachable proportions, the GT811e add a completely new sonic personality and playing experience to the popular 800 Series.
