Taylor GT Urban Ash

ACOUSTIC GUITAR
$1999 CAD ($1659.17 USD)
Taylor’s new GT Urban Ash is a smaller, all-solid wood guitar that’s bigger than the popular GS Mini and dimensioned like a scaled down Grand Orchestra. The guitar’s neck features a scale length of 24-1/8”, which is roughly mid-way between the GS Mini’s short scale, and a that of a Grand Concert, and the nut width is 1-23/32” which splits the difference between the two common nut widths of 1-11/16 and 1-3/4”.

Taylor designed the GT Urban Ash to be a sustainability-minded guitar, using urban-grown Shamal Ash for the back and sides, and Eucalyptus for the fingerboard and headstock overlay. The Sitka spruce top features C-Class bracing, which was specifically designed for this new body shape and scale-length configuration.

The GT has a lovely warm tone that enjoys some of the GS Mini’s openness through the midrange and an increased bass-end presence and treble-end focus that will surely appeal to small-body guitar players. The model is very responsive and genuinely fun to play. Set up with low action and light-gauge strings.
