Used 2007 Taylor Custom Shop Grand Concert
An Intoxicating Sonic CocktailWildwoodians, this Taylor Custom Shop Grand Concert delivers a delicious sonic cocktail for your ears thanks to its premium ingredients. The Engelmann spruce top makes this guitar drip with harmonic overtones and gives it a midrange-forward sound with an open quality. This pairs beautifully with the Madagascar rosewood back and sides! Madagascar rosewood is renowned for sounding and looking similar to its Brazilian cousin, and it fills out the sound with deep, rich lows and three-dimensional highs.
This combination of tonewoods works beautifully within the context of the Grand Concert body, too. The smaller body allows for greater articulation and clarity, which helps balance out the rich sound of the wood. All in all, it's a Grand Concert with the kind of full-bodied harmonic response you can get lost in, but it remains balanced and clear. We have no doubt this serial will inspire some lucky acoustic adventurer to embark on all sorts of exciting fretboard journeys!
Condition ReportThis Custom Taylor has accumulated a few bumps and bruises over the years, but it has been well-loved and taken care of. And hoo boy, the combination of Engelmann spruce and Madagascar rosewood sure sounds sweet! There are some very light signs of playwear, and the frets show some very light wear. Near the tuner posts, there is some bubbling and de-lamination and some very small dings on the headstock. There are cracks on the top on either side of the fretboard, and there's a repaired crack on the back. Finally, there's a tiny check on the top near the butt of the guitar and some light checking on the sides. If you don't mind a few imperfections, this is a great opportunity to experience the magic of a custom shop Taylor at an exceptional value.
