Taylor GS8 2007 Natural Acoustic Guitar. Here for sale we have a Taylor GS8 Acoustic Guitar from 2007. Made in Cajon, California, this guitar features a Sitka Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, a Mahogany neck, a 20-fret Ebony fingerboard and a gloss finish on the body but a satin finish on the neck.These Guitars were designed for players who find dreadnought and jumbo bodies too big but don't want to sacrifice too much of the strength and tone found in those guitars. The scale length of this guitar is 25.5 inches and the nut width is 1.75 inches. The body is made up of a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. The Rosewood offers a lot of warmth and resonance to the overall sound of the guitar and when you combine that with the bright, snappiness of the Spruce, you end up with a really rich, full-bodied sound that has plenty of life in it. The Mahogany neck adds a great deal of sustain to the instrument and thanks to the satin finish on the neck, it is a dream to navigate.
The Ebony fingerboard feels really comfortable and sturdy, helping you to feel at home straight away with this guitar. The Mahogany neck is attached to the body with a beautiful dovetail joint that makes it easier for your hands to reach those higher notes. Back and Sides - Indian Rosewood.
