Thanks to the 12-frets clear layout, which puts the bridge closer to the center of the soundboard, this Grand Concert Taylor sounds a lot bigger than it looks. While the pearl bordering and fingerboard inlays give you a lot to admire at close range, the wood binding and purfling make the overall impression more subtle than flashy. Low string action and the comfy arm bevel, plus the shorter reach for your left hand (thanks to the 12-fret neck) add up to a guitar that's both compact and comfortable. This example shows almost no signs of use, ditto the original Taylor case.
