With its unmistakable tonal character, a nylon-string guitar makes a wonderful addition to one’s musical toolbox. For Taylor steel-string players craving the unique sonic flavor and texture of a classical-style guitar, our nylon-string designs offer a smooth crossover playing experience, featuring a sleek and comfortable neck profile. This edition of the rosewood/Lutz spruce Grand Concert 712ce-N features a slightly radiused (20-inch) fretboard, 1-7/8-inch neck, and compact 12-fret neck. Other modern amenities include onboard electronics, featuring our ES-N® pickup, for easy amplified nylon tone, plus a Venetian cutaway for plenty of upper fretboard access. Distinctive 700 Series aesthetic details include a golden-brown Western Sunburst top, Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, along with a “weathered brown” pickguard design with a pattern reminiscent of leather, and our “Reflections” fretboard inlay in pale green abalone.
