A Smaller Body with a Full Size Sonic Punch

The Taylor scaled-down GT acoustic body shape has impressed players with its blend of portability, playability and solid-wood tone. Made in America with Indian rosewood back and sides plus a Sitka spruce top, the GT 811e adds a superstar tonewood combination to the GT family, serving up warm lows, pristine trebles and a slight scoop in the midrange—perfect for playing with vocals or other musicians. Inside, Taylor C-Class bracing adds more volume and sustain to give this smaller model a full-size sonic punch. Appointed with elegant details such as an abalone rosette and Element fretboard inlays, the GT 811e also includes ES2 electronics and ships with a lightweight, super-durable AeroCase.
