You are looking at a Taylor Custom Shop Grand Concert 12-Fret AA Walnut/Torrefied Spruce Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1105096121. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Sam Ash Music is pleased to introduce a set of five exquisite, unique custom-built acoustic-electrics from Taylor Guitars. In March 2016, the Sam Ash guitar team, including Sammy Ash (COO), John Conley (Guitar Buyer/Product Manager), Ben Ash (Regional Manager) and Danielle Shapiro (Copywriter/Product Specialist), set out to El Cajon, California to the Taylor factory and hand-selected extraordinary tonewoods from Andy Powers' personal wood library to create the ultimate set of fine custom instruments for the Sam Ash Guitars of Distinction collection. The members of the Sam Ash team were honored to have private access to some of the most exclusive tonewoods ever available. The Sam Ash team, all of whom are guitar players themselves, went through numerous sets of tonewoods until they found five sets that were truly exceptional. Once the tonewoods were selected, the Sam Ash team spent many weeks deliberating and meticulously selecting every fine detail of each instrument. From body shapes, neck carves and bracings to visual touches including inlays, bindings and rosettes, all of the appointments the Sam Ash team decided on were selected to complement each instrument, both sonically and visually.

We believe that this exclusive set of custom guitars will cover any sound, any playing style and any desire that a true collector and player would want as a centerpiece of their guitar collection. Each guitar in this custom collection comes complete with hardshell case and a signed copy of Bob Taylor's book, Guitar Lessons: A Life's Journey Turning Passion into Business. Each book has been personally signed by Bob Taylor himself and Taylor master luthier Andy Powers.

What master luthier Andy Powers has to say about this guitar:
"This guitar has sweetness for days. Or generations. The unique combination of walnut's dry warmth with the open clarity of torrefied spruce lends itself to many playing styles, but is likely best appreciated by a fingerstyle player looking for a pure and clean voice. In the framework of a 12-fret Grand Concert, this guitar will speak easily with the most delicate touch, yet be able to handle a full hand of power just as well."

This Custom Shop Grand Concert 12-Fret is an exceptional choice for fingerstyle players or guitarists who prefer the comfort of a smaller body. The Sam Ash team picked out a stunning selection of AA-grade walnut from Andy's private wood library for this 12-Fret GC, with a subtle figure and a light naturally-occuring strip that runs down the center of the beautifully book-matched two-piece back. The Sam Ash guitar team decided to pair the walnut back and sides with a temperature-aged torrefied spruce top, a 12-fret construction and Adirondack spruce bracing to give this custom some extra warmth and a broken-in tonal response. It produces a warm, mellow acoustic voice with crystal clear trebles, all of which can be faithfully conveyed through your amp or PA system thanks to onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics. Taylor 12-fret models typically feature slotted headstocks, but the Sam Ash team decided to go against the grain (pun intended) and requested a standard headstock for this Custom 12-Fret. The shorter 24-7/8" scale length makes this Custom Grand Concert 12-Fret exceptionally comfortable to play and hold while the Gotoh tuning machines offer outstanding tuning stability and performance.

The Sam Ash team chose to incorporate natural wood Bouquet inlays that would complement this particular selection of walnut. The Bouquet headstock and fretboard inlays feature Euro maple and myrtle, which just as the walnut back, they offer the perfect blend of light and dark. The ebony-bound top, back and soundhole and ebony rosette cater to this Custom GC 12-Fret's simple, yet elegant look.
