A fingerstylist's dream, Taylor's mahogany/cedar Grand Concert 512e packs stunning warmth and midrange presence into a comfortable, player-friendly package. The smaller body and 24-7/8-inch-scale neck make for an intimate playing experience, and the cedar top responds with a wonderful midrange bloom, especially for players with a light touch. This guitar feature's Taylor's new V-Class bracing tailored for the Grand Concert's body shape, which pushes a surprising amount of volume from this small-bodied guitar, coupled with notes that sustain gorgeously. The new bracing design proves a perfect match for a solid cedar top, opening up greater headroom while maintaining cedar's natural touch sensitivity and warmth. Taylor's ES2 pickup delivers organic amplified acoustic tone. Appointments faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.
Grand Concert Body Shape: A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Western Red Cedar Top: A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.
Tropical Mahogany Back & Sides: A midrange powerhouse, mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.
Expression System 2 Pickup: The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
V-Class Bracing: A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
