A body shape and tonewood combination that offers up incredible volume.

The sonic power and depth of Taylor’s Grand Symphony body shape, especially in the lower mids, add girth and sustain to the overall voice. The cutaway ovangkol/spruce 416ce makes for a bold strumming guitar, yielding meaty midrange and strong treble notes, as well as a great choice for flat picking with clear articulation. Its responsiveness to a light touch gives all players a dynamic range to explore. Clean, modern appointments include crisp white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a three-ring rosette, with Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 acoustic electronics responding with a clear, natural amplified sound for performing or recording.

Includes hardshell case.

Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Indian Rosewood

Indian rosewood is one of the most popular and musically expressive tonewoods in the world. Among Taylor’s solid-wood guitars, rosewood is normally reserved for the 700, 800 and 900 Series, but the 400 Rosewoods now bring rosewood - with lustrous gloss finishes - into a more accessible price range. Taylor's Grand Auditorium shape and rosewood's balanced, broad sonic range and complexity - and of course Taylor's renown playability - result in a guitar that will be a joy to play in a variety of scenarios for a lifetime. All 400 Series instruments ship in a deluxe hard shell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Tonewood Pairing
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides complement the Sitka top with sound that's made it one of the most popular tone woods ever. Rosewood produces the strongest bass response among the tone woods commonly used for guitars, with a slightly scooped midrange. Rosewood's sweeping frequency range - deep lows that assert a throaty growl with sparkling highs - rings out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity. It yields a full-range acoustic voice with complex overtones and extended sustain.

Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
