This 12-fret Grand Concert is beyond mint – as close to newas you can possibly get in a pre-owned 712e, and absolute wonder to play - theshorter neck meets the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th, and thebridge position is shifted closer to the center of the lower bout. The resultis a boost in tonal warmth and power. It has a Lutz spruce top which Taylor usedon the 700 Series. Sides and back are rosewood which produces a broad and very articulatetonal range. When combined with its size and top, its ability to keep overtonesin check is fantastic. The 24-7/8-inch neck aids in making it incrediblycomfortable to play. Details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-stylerosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglasfir top trim. The onboard ES2electronics work flawlessly producing an impeccable amplified acoustic tone.Guitar comes with deluxe case and case candy, all as minty new as the guitaritself.
