The mahogany-top cutaway Grand Concert 322ce will appeal to rootsy fingerstyle players craving a comfortable playing experience. The 24-7/8-inch neck makes fretting and bending strings easier, while the blackwood/mahogany wood pairing yields a surprisingly warm and dynamic tonal response for a smaller body, bolstered further by this year’s addition of V-Class bracing. Our new bracing pattern, which enables the soundboard to produce a more orderly response to the string vibration, translates into greater volume and projection with longer sustain, enhancing this guitar’s already warm, sweet response. A smooth shaded edgeburst adds a tasteful vintage look that complements the rich-grained mahogany top. Appointments include a black pickguard, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, black binding with crisp white top trim, 3-ring rosette, and satin finish. The guitar comes equipped with a Venetian cutaway and Expression System 2 electronics for organic plugged-in acoustic tone.
