Taylor’s rosewood/spruce Grand Concert is all about articulation and intimacy, and with its newly added radius-style rosewood armrest, the playing experience is more refined than ever. It’s a fingerstyle favorite for its balanced and focused response, now enhanced by the tone-boosting power of V-Class bracing. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought out extra midrange warmth in this body shape, while the bracing design adds projection and sustain, making this a surprisingly punchy guitar for its compact, player-friendly size. A Venetian cutaway offers easy access to the upper register, while Taylor Expression System 2 electronics serve up exceptional amplified tone. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, smoked nickel tuners, and a rosewood pickguard.
