Description

This cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert delivers a playing experience that blends physical comfort with surprising warmth and tonal power for a compact body. The 12-fret neck-to-body relationship shifts the bridge position on the soundboard, where it articulates the top in a way that produces more midrange punch. The rosewood/Lutz spruce wood pairing yields a pleasing blend of sonic detail and dynamic range. The Grand Concert body makes for a clear, responsive voice that fingerstyle players will love, along with the hand-friendly 24-7/8-inch scale length. The compact body also keeps the overtones in check, making this a great choice for recording or the stage, especially with Taylor’s natural-sounding onboard ES2 acoustic electronics. Wood-rich appointments include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while the “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim.

FEATURES

Shapes - Grand Concert
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Top Woods - Lutz Spruce
This natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce also shares characteristics with Adirondack spruce, responding with power, richness and volume.

Body Woods - Indian Rosewood
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Electronics - Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Cutaways - Venetian Cutaway
The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
