Taylor's V-Class bracing lends extra power and sweetness to this cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert, broadening its musical range.
Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides produce a strong voice—even in a small-body GC—with a meaty midrange focus and a splash of top-end shimmer, while the mahogany top adds a touch of natural compression to smooth out the response from top to bottom.
The combination of a 12-fret neck, slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length and a shifted bridge position (closer to the center of the lower bout) produces a slinkier hand feel.
This makes an excellent choice for players who crave the comfort of a compact frame. With its microphone-friendly voice, it also makes a great choice for recording and with the ES2 electronics, it produces a clear, flavorful amplified sound.
The dark and earthy aesthetic incorporates a shaded edgeburst top over the dusky Mahogany top, black binding, an all-satin finish, a black pickguard, and small diamond inlays in Italian acrylic.
