812e 12-Fret (2020)

For players seeking that ultra-traditional, non-cutaway aesthetic, the new 812e represents the perfect blend of style, sound and player-forward design. V-Class bracing powers a solid Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides to produce balanced, articulate acoustic tone that’s ideal for both fingerstylists and flatpickers, with additional volume and sustain delivered with the revolutionary bracing package. The Grand Concert’s compact frame receives an ergonomic upgrade with a radius-style rosewood armrest that takes the hard edge off the top of the lower bout for an even smoother feel, complemented by the slinky fretting response that comes with our 12-fret configuration. Appointments for this model include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, smoked nickel tuners, and a rosewood pickguard. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
