Taylor: 612(Item ID: 612 Serial#: 1102028057)
Grand Concert with Torrefied Spruce and Maple with "Brown Sugar" Stain
The 600 series Taylors were completely redesigned in 2015. For the full story see the following: www.taylorguitars.com .
From the Taylor website:
"The new 600 Series boasts an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maple’s tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice. Design nuances include a maple-specific back bracing profile and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction, a method of roasting the wood to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Other touches include the use of protein glues to optimize the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish.
The smaller dimensions of the Grand Concert will emphasize clarity in its articulation and a certain high-end chime that a larger guitar won’t. It can be a delicate, articulate voice, and yet have a surprising amount of volume and power to it as well."
This guitar includes a deluxe Taylor archtop hardshell case.
