The rosewood and Lutz spruce 712ce pairs Taylor’s cutaway Grand Concert body with a shorter scale length of 24-⅞ inches for a physically compact and intimate playing experience, making fretting chords easier and reducing the guitar’s string tension for a slinky fretting-hand feel. New this year, we’ve added V-Class bracing, our new interior sonic engine, which brings new levels of power and sustain to this small-bodied guitar. Fingerstyle players will love the Grand Concert’s responsiveness together with the articulate sonic detail of the rosewood/Lutz spruce wood combo, and the Venetian cutaway offers more room to play up the neck. 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 add a pro-grade pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.
