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.
