This cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert blends incredible playing comfort — the result of the compact 12-fret design, slinky handfeel, and an ergonomic radius armrest — with a tonal response that’s impressively bold, warm and punchy for its intimate body size. The neck’s 24-7/8-inch scale length heightens the physical playing comfort, while the different positioning of the bridge on the soundboard — closer to the center of the lower bout compared to a 14-fret model — helps generate a meatier, more robust response. That boldness is enhanced on this Deluxe model by Adirondack spruce bracing, which raises the dynamic ceiling. Gotoh 510 tuners supply another upgraded design feature of the Deluxe series, featuring a 21:1 gear ratio for smooth, precise tuning control. For a small-body acoustic, the blend of physical comfort, responsiveness to a light touch, and tonal output make this a remarkably expressive guitar. Refined appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim with a matching rosewood armrest veneer, a rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Taylor’s Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.
