Price: $4,498 US MSRP / Series: 800

Taylor’s rosewood/spruce Grand Concert is all about articulation and intimacy. It’s a fingerstyle favorite for its balanced and focused response and makes a perfect recording guitar, as it fits well with other instruments. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought out extra midrange warmth in this body shape, and the new custom-gauge HD Light strings add boldness to the treble notes, with impressive volume and dynamic range for a smaller guitar. A Venetian cutaway offers easy access to the upper register, while Taylor Expression System 2 electronics serve up exceptional amplified tone. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, and a rosewood pickguard.
