Congratulations! I think the Grand Symphony is one of Taylor’s best shapes.
It was originally designed with Medium gauge strings...
I have one of the Cedar/Rosewood GS 7 models. Mine has a 3 piece back.

Awesome guitar! I have an 800 series also that I've had for almost 15 years.

Well done for your perseverance and so much the better if you have managed to save your guitar.

I'm in the same situation as you with my 114ce. I had to try about twenty different sets of strings from several brands from light to medium and with picks up to 1.14mm nylon to try to warm up a little this guitar which is much too bright and chime but nothing is wrong. done there. I will give it one last chance with an D'addario EFT16 flatwound set and if it is not satisfactory I will have to get rid of it.

Meant to add earlier but maybe better here by way of confirmation: the medium DR Sunbeams seem to favor mine and are a little more relaxed under the fingers than your standard hex core 13s. Recommended.

Congratulations on a sweet guitar. The GS shape is my favorite Taylor body.

It's a wonderful thing when you find your favorite string! I experiment with different strings on every guitar I acquire, and sometimes it takes me several weeks to find the best match. GREAT looking Taylor you have there...I have never played that body size, only GP's, X14's and X12's. Maybe I should...
Congrats!
