The Taylor 412ce V-Class Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric pairs Ovangkol back and sides with a spruce top for a tone that blends the harmonic density of rosewood with the crisp mid-range of mahogany. We love this relatively new tone-wood combo and find it pleasing for the instrumentalist as well as the singer/strummer. Read on to learn all about this Grand Concert size acoustic-electric guitar!
According to Taylor, "Ovangkol shares rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range, with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright, focused top end. The smaller body will curb the overtones and fit well in a mix with other instruments." Paired with a Sitka Spruce top for incredible performance whether strumming or finger-picking, this guitar seems to handle everything you throw at it with grace.
A tropical Mahogany neck is topped with an Ebony Fingerboard, the classic Taylor Combo. The fingerboard radius is 15" for a flat feel from the nut to butt. The neck is carved to that familiar profile so many Taylor players continue to flock to. 24.8" scale length gives the strings a slightly slinky feel when compared to say a Martin D-28. 1.75" nut width puts the strings right under your fingers.
