Custom Taylor 12-fret with Gorgeous Quilt Maple

Tonal brilliance and beauty are in your hands with the Taylor Grand Concert 12-fret Custom AA Quilt Maple. The torrefied Sitka spruce top and AA quilt maple back and sides deliver a full and articulate sound. Thanks to Taylor's new bracing patterns, not only will you revel in the clear top of the maple, but you'll be astounded at the low-end presence. And the Grand Concert body shape is a favorite among Sweetwater fingerstyle players for its focused voice and balanced tone. Expand your tonal palette with the Grand Concert 12-fret Custom AA Quilt Maple.

Customized bracing

You'll notice that the Grand Concert Custom 12-fret boasts exceptionally vibrant tones with a unique character. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns, to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. They even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. In the words of luthier Andy Powers, the updated Advanced Performance bracing pattern gives these instruments a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."

Grand Concert 12-fret body

Taylor's Grand Concert body style gives you clarity, focus, and balanced tone that sits beautifully in thicker arrangements where a larger-bodied acoustic would take up too much real estate. Arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style, the Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. And this custom Taylor also boasts 12-fret construction. By attaching the body to the neck at the 12th fret and relocating the bridge, you'll notice a warmer tone and softer feel, much like a great vintage instrument.

Torrefied Sitka spruce meets AA quilt maple

The Grand Concert 12-fret Custom is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features torrefied Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle. By baking the wood, all the oils in the spruce crystallize, injecting the top with the broken-in tone of a great vintage guitar. And this guitar's AA quilt maple back and sides give it an extra bright and snappy tone.

Taylor Grand Concert 12-fret Custom AA Quilt Maple Features:

  • Custom Grand Concert guitar with top-tier craftsmanship
  • Smaller than average Grand Concert body style with 12-fret construction
  • Torrefied Sitka spruce top provides a perfectly broken-in tone
  • Stunning AA quilt maple back and sides add chiming brightness and powerful lows
  • Warm and natural plugged-in tone thanks to the onboard Expression System 2 electronics
  • Ornamented with koa and maple wing fretboard inlays
