The Taylor 322ce Grand Concert produces a clear, distinct, and rootsy voice. Dynamic players love the clarity and responsiveness to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch. Taylor's Grand Concert body features a comfortable, small body which makes for a great fingerstyle guitar that has a smaller sonic foot print, making it easier to mix in live and recording situations. Players will love the slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length of the Grand Concert. The result is a slinkier handfeel that makes it easier to form chords and bend strings, and tonally, surprising power, warmth, and sustain for the smaller body. The venetian cutaway gives the guitar a modern look while allowing access to the higher frets.
The blackwood back and sides produce a strong midrange focus with a splash of top-end shimmer, while the mahogany top helps even out the tonal response. Other distinctive features include a shaded edgeburst top, an all-satin finish, Gemstone fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, and Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup.
