Taylor's 500 series:

The mahogany class: All 500s have a completely mahogany body and a gloss body finish. The sound of the dark and strongly grained wood is enhanced by an Expression System 2.

Frames and back made of well selected solid mahogany

Grand Auditorium body:

The GA design is the link between the Dreadnought and the Grand Concert. Accordingly, it combines the large tonal range of dreadnought in flatpicking and strumming with the advantages of the Grand Concert suitable for fingerpicking. Altogether a true all-rounder with overwhelming sound!

Die-cast mechanisms for tuning stability and precise tuning

Expression System 2:

The Expression System 2 is an upgrade to the previously used version of the in-house pickup system. In contrast to previous practice, the transducer of the ES2 is not located underneath but behind the bar insert. This was because the high tensile force of the strings limits the vertical vibration of the inlay, but it can swing back and forth. The piezo pickup takes advantage of this movement to produce a warm, full and less biting, bright sound.
