Taylor 322e 12-Fret Grand Concert Acoustic/Electric Guitar with V-Class Bracing, ES2 Pickup & Hardshell Case
Our V-Class bracing lends extra power, sustain and sweetness to this non-cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert, broadening its musical range. Blackwood back and sides produce a strong voice—even in small-body GC—with a pleasing midrange focus and a splash of top-end shimmer, while the mahogany top adds a touch of natural compression to smooth out the response from top to bottom. The combination of a 12-fret neck, slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, and a shifted bridge position (closer to the center of the lower bout) produces a slinkier handfeel. This will make an excellent choice for players who crave the comfort of a compact frame. It also makes a great guitar for recording, and with the ES2 electronics, produces a clear, flavorful amplified sound. Distinctive aesthetic features include a shaded edgeburst top, all-satin finish, and small diamond inlays in Italian acrylic.
Grand Concert Shape - A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Tropical Mahogany Top Woods - The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.

V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
