If you like a full rich sound from a relatively small body, the 12-fret versions of Taylor Grand Concert models are hard to beat, especially rosewood models like this 712ce. The shorter neck (past the body) puts the bridge in the center of the functional portion of the soundboard, giving a more open tone with more sustain. Another advantage, especially for singers, is that the player's left hand is closer to their body so your hands are in a more compact space, no reaching out in left field for basic chords (this is aided by the shorter string scale).

This 712ce was made in 2017 and it looks like new, and has almost zero fret wear. Taylor's ES2 pickup system delivers a very realistic tone when you need to plug in. Original Taylor case is in comparable condition.
