On Taylor’s 12-fret Grand Concert models, the shorter neck meets the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th, and the bridge position is shifted closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is a boost in tonal warmth and power. That response is also bolstered by the Lutz spruce top used on the 700 Series. Together with rosewood back and sides, players can expect a broad and articulate tonal range. The compact Grand Concert body emphasizes clarity and balance, and helps keep the overtones in check, making this a great option for recording both solo and with other instruments. The 24-7/8-inch neck adds slinky comfort to the playing experience. Wood-rich aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while a new “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim. Taylor’s onboard ES2 electronics supply a top-notch pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.
