Taylor Acoustic Guitars - GC 12 Fret Custom BTO
A lot of thought went into this beautiful Taylor GC 12 Fret Custom BTO, beyond the fine Taylor workmanship. Earlier this year, our own John F. and Tim N. hand picked the Cocobolo for this Build to Order custom acoustic during a Taylor factory visit. Here it is...an incredible Sinker Redwood top, paired with the Cocobolo we chose, on one of the most playable Taylor body styles around, the Grand Concert - a slightly shorter scale at 24 7/8". Really great response and easily one of the most comfortable instruments to play. Perfect for fingerstyle, this has a 15" lower bout and 4 3/8" depth and a 1 3/4" nutwidth. A Deluxe Taylor hard case is included.
"This guitar project was a lot of fun to do. On our April visit to Taylor Guitars, we were allowed us to look through their stash of top shelf woods, reserved for their most special guitars. I hand selected a beautiful quarter sawn set of Cocobolo (not an easy thing to find and most of the Cocobolo I see is cut off quarter. The quarter sawn is stiffer and does a good job of making the guitar punch). The Sinker Redwood is extraordinary and a great balance to the dense, stiffer back."
The tone is warm and rich with a great amount of volume in a small package. It has snap on the high end without being thin. We chose Adirodack bracing for this because it's lighter than Sitka and we wanted this to be a super responsive instrument. The bone nut and saddle increase sustain and give better tone as well. This custom is understated, yet highly elegant in appearance. The binding, backstrip on the back of the headstock, rosette, bound soundhole, miniwedge on the back, fretboard, bridge, and headstock overlay are all Ebony. The guitar looks and sounds absolutely amazing.
