The Taylor Custom All Urban Ash 12-Fret Grand Concert acoustic-electric guitar provides a bold new tonal palette for discerning players. Handcrafted from hand-selected ash with a unique ombré fade, this custom Grand Concert's focused voice and comfortable compact size inspire creativity. The 12-fret neck-to-body join and V-Class bracing optimize resonance and playability.

Resonant Ash Construction

The Taylor Custom All Urban Ash's solid ash top, back and sides produce a punchy midrange and controlled overtones perfect for nuanced playing. An ombré fade from dark blue to light blue to natural blond gives this guitar a coastal vibe that matches its Southern Californian craftsmanship. The hard rock maple neck's inverted fade, from blond to blue, provides visual cohesion. These premium, responsively-grained woods translate your lightest touch into music.

V-Class Bracing Unlocks Potential

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing takes this Grand Concert's tonal capabilities to new heights. V-Class bracing boosts volume, sustain and intonation for purer, more resonant notes across the fingerboard. You'll enjoy richer harmonics, more projection and a sweeter decay. V-Class makes this guitar easier to tune by producing pitches electronic tuners readily detect. Whether fingerpicking or flatpicking, V-Class bracing helps your playing shine through.

Grand Concert Body and Neck

The Taylor Grand Concert body's intimate size provides lap-friendly comfort and a balanced acoustic voice. Controlled overtones allow this guitar to cut through mixes without sacrificing warmth. Its 24.875" scale 12-fret neck has a slim profile for comfortable chording and single-note runs. An ebony fingerboard offers a smooth playing surface, while mother-of-pearl Gothic Vine inlays provide visual inspiration.

Plugged-in Performance

The Taylor ES2 pickup system captures this guitar's acoustic nuance for natural-sounding amplification. Its proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup has three sensors to convey dynamic range. Because the pickup sits behind the saddle, the saddle maintains full contact with the bridge for optimal unplugged tone. Paired with premium components like Gotoh tuners, a paua rosette and flamed maple binding, the ES2 completes this guitar's boutique acoustic experience.

Premium Appointments Complete the Look

Beautiful paua shell accents this guitar's aesthetic, including a single-ring rosette with maple and ebony purfling, Gothic Vine fingerboard inlays and a peghead logo. Gold Gotoh tuners, a bone nut and saddle and ebony bridge pins with purple dots provide premium hardware. Flamed maple binding on the top, back, fingerboard, heel cap and soundhole completes the custom treatment. Overall, this guitar exhibits exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail that match its inspiring tone.
