This non-cutaway mahogany-top Grand Concert 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 allows the soundboard to translate the string energy more clearly, helps produce 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 also comes equipped with Expression System 2 electronics for a smooth plug-and-play experience.
