Introduced in 2006 the GS is an original design from top to bottom ? and the first new Taylor shape in over a decade. It was a hit right out of the gate. Expect acoustic power with every note with deep piano-like bass rich mids and clear balanced highs ? and plenty of volume. It?s a whole new flavor of Taylor tone.
Taylor's two Indian rosewood acoustic guitar offerings represent classic combinations with nearly universal appeal. With a Sitka spruce top we add a touch of crispness to rosewood?s big bold tone.

"Dear Musiciansbuy, I just wanted drop you guys a line to let you know that my Seagull Maritime SWS SG QI arrived today. Once you guys Fedexed to Ohio it arrived right on schedule. I could not be happier with my experience shopping with you guys. You had the best deal on this guitar (and many others) hands down. Noone was even close to the price you guys gave me. Because the item was not in stock at your store you had to order it directly from Seagull and you told me it would take about 2 weeks. I ordered it on 1/02/2012 and it arrived today 1/20. So it was just a little longer than you initially told me but not by much. Anytime I called to check on the status of the order I was able to talk to a friendly associate who spoke English clearly.... Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The guitar arrived in it's case and it is BEAUTIFUL. It sounds better than I hoped it would. Very, very, very impressed with you guys. I will be happy to bring my business to you in the future. Keep up the good work."
