Exotic tonewoods and a very playable size make this a great investment for your listening and playing pleasure.

This mahogany top 322 Grand Concert makes a great match for rootsy fingerstyle players in search of a comfortable-size guitar. The short-scale neck makes fretting and bending easier, while the mahogany/sapele wood pairing yields a surprisingly dynamic tonal range for a smaller body. Appointments include a black pickguard and binding with a crisp white top trim and rosette. Includes hardshell case.

Grand Concert
The small-body Grand Concert debuted in 1984 to meet the needs of a new wave of adventurous acoustic fingerstyle players. In contrast to the traditionally darker, boomier voices of bigger body styles like dreadnoughts and jumbos, the GC’s compact size and tapered waist kept the overtones in check. It was also more comfortable to play while sitting down, and the guitar’s slightly wider neck gave players more room for complex fingerings. The GC’s smaller sonic footprint also fit cleanly in a mix with other instruments when tracking in the studio and with a band on stage, making it a useful tool for professional session and side players. Taylor's Extoccurrent generation of GC models continues to accommodate fingerstylists with finger-friendly traits like a shorter 24-7/8" scale length, which makes fretting easier and adds a slightly slinkier feel on the strings due to the lighter string tension. If you feel more comfortable with a small body or favor controlled overtones, a Grand Concert is a great option.

Sapele
An alternative tonewood that joined the Taylor fold over a decade ago, sapele is sometimes mistakenly referred to as African mahogany because it closely resembles the West African wood khaya, which is commercially known as African mahogany. Sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. Like ovangkol, it’s a great all-purpose tonewood that will deliver a consistent, balanced tone in a variety of playing applications, from fingerstyle to strumming.
