The smaller body of the Grand Concert allows for playing comfort and sonic focus and yields a surprising level of midrange warmth and treble boldness, fueled by improvements to volume and sustain from the new bracing scheme, making this a more musically expressive guitar for fingerstyle players and light strummers.
• Grand Concert Shape - A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
• Sitka Spruce Top Wood - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
• Indian Rosewood Body Wood - The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
• Expression System 2 Electronics capture more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
• Venetian Cutaway - The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
• V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
