Fantastic smaller body Taylor with surprising volume and an excellent choice for the fingerstyle player. One of the first things you’ll notice is the slotted headstock with the shorter scale (24 7/8-inch) the GC-7 delivers a more “woody” tone and an easier feel on the fretboard. With its solid cedar top, this one has the mellow tone that sounds older than the guitar. The Grand Concert is the smallest of Taylor’s full-size body shapes which makes it extremely comfortable to play, especially seated, with a more intimate feel and tone. The smaller size reduces undesired overtones and allows a more focused, articulate sound. Perfect for recording and stage work. Features include Western Red Cedar top, Indian Rosewood sides/back, Tropical Mahogany neck with Ebony fretboard, Tusq nut and saddle, Indian Rosewood headstock veneer, Rosewood truss rod cover, Taylor slotted headstock with gloss finish, gloss finish body on all sides, satin finish neck, gold tuners, abalone dot inlays, ebony bridge pins with abalone dots, 24 7/8″ scale, 15″ lower bout, 4 3/8″ body depth, 1 3/4″ nut width, bracing: forward shifted pattern with relief route, mother of pearl logo, and abalone rosette. The slightly wider neck allows for faster, wider fingering and the shorter scale contributes lighter tension and, thus, slightly slinkier feel on the strings. It’s well-appointed for a Taylor: nothing gaudy, but very nice, with multiple ply body binding, cream neck binding, and just enough abalone trim to make you take notice. With a list price of $2995, this one’s in exceptionally nice condition and a fantastic Grand Concert for $1499.
