Taylor’s Exquisite 712e 12-fret Grand Concert Combining tasteful aesthetics, tone-enhancing details, and amazing value, Taylor’s 700 Series guitars are incredibly popular. The solid Lutz spruce top of the 712e 12-fret Grand Concert V-Class acoustic-electric pairs beautifully with richly grained solid Indian rosewood back and sides to deliver a delicate, beautifully detailed sound with warm low end, punchy midrange, and clear treble — a sound forged by Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class bracing and amplified flawlessly by the onboard Expression System 2 electronics. As your eyes drink in this instrument’s understated elegance, your hands savor its flawless playability and your ears revel in its rich, organic tone. Taylor’s 712e 12-fret Grand Concert V-Class is a feast for the senses. Ideal for fingerstyle and tracking For fingerstyle and tracking, Sweetwater’s guitar gurus favor Taylor’s Grand Concert body style, which gives you clarity and balanced tone that lend itself to layering with other instruments in thicker arrangements where a larger-bodied acoustic would take up too much sonic real estate. The 12-fret neck join gives this instrument an easy, relaxed hand feel, while the shifted bridge location dials up midrange assertiveness. This guitar’s smaller Grand Concert body and tapered waist not only make it a great studio and stage guitar, but its short scale and lighter string tension also make it easier to play — perfect for younger players with small hands. It also makes for a more efficient design; the smaller body is inherently stronger, which enables it to be more lightly braced, making it easier to set the strings in motion.
