This Deluxe edition of our 800 Series Grand Concert checks all the boxes to inspire fingerstyle players and anyone seeking a comfortable feel and rich acoustic tone. This year brings the addition of V-Class bracing, our new internal architecture that drives the 812ce DLX to produce greater projection, longer sustain, and a more musical tone thanks to improved intonation. The bracing design allows more of rosewood’s natural warmth and harmonic complexity to shine through, as notes bloom and resonate with rich overtone texture. A solid Sitka spruce top delivers top-end sparkle, while rosewood’s slightly scooped mids make this small-bodied acoustic perfect for playing alongside vocals. A Venetian cutaway puts more upper register notes within reach of your fretting fingers. Refined appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood edge trim, an ergonomic radius armrest, rosewood pickguard, and mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
