What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
African mahogany back and sides Warm tone; open midrange
Ebony fretboard Dark color, tight grain; premium fretboard wood
Taylor Expression System pickups Innovative multiple pickup system on-board

The Taylor 312ce Grand Concert acoustic electric guitar is perfect for the fingerstyle player who also enjoys light to moderate strumming. A favorite with players who enjoy the clarity and responsiveness to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch. Taylor’s Grand Concert body features a comfortable, small body which makes for a great fingerstyle guitar that has a smaller sonic foot print, making it easier to mix in live and recording situations. Players will love the slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length of the Grand Concert. The result is a slinkier handfeel that makes it easier to form chords and bend strings, and tonally, surprising power, warmth, and sustain for the smaller body. The venetian cutaway gives the guitar a modern look while allowing access to the higher frets.

The Sapele back and sides produce a strong midrange focus similar to mahogany with a splash of top-end shimmer, while the Sitka spruce top helps deliver even projection and accurate tonal response. Other distinctive features include Gemstone fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, Gloss finish top with satin finish back and sides, and Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup.

Well! Other than buying a Breedluv that God only know will cost a portion of my soul. I can't think of another guitar, I would want to own.
Lets just say this is the guitar the Angels in heaven use. Yes! That good.
Simple. Stright forward. Everything fancy is in side the guitar. Just the way I like it.
Ease of Use
Cutting butter or playing this guitar. HUM! Tough one.

I bought this used for, if you can belive it $900.0o with hard case. Had I known this would become a love of mine, I would have gone out and payed full price.
