A Western Sunburst top, slotted headstock, and wood-rich detailing give this lively cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert loads of rootsy aesthetic character. The 12-fret neck-to-body relationship repositions the bridge on the soundboard, where it articulates the top in a way that produces more warmth and midrange punch. The rosewood/Lutz spruce wood pairing yields a pleasing blend of sonic detail and dynamic range. The lap-friendly Grand Concert body is exceptionally responsive and curbs the overtones. Together with the hand-friendly 24-7/8-inch scale length, this makes a great guitar for fingerstyle players and anyone craving a physically comfortable playing experience. The appointments evoke an Americana vibe, featuring Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, and a “weathered brown” pickguard design. The guitar also comes equipped with Taylor’s onboard ES2 acoustic electronics for a natural amplified acoustic sound.
