Players love the 12-fret neck configuration among our Grand Concert models, and we’re excited to include this exquisite offering in our lineup. A richly variegated sinker redwood top is paired with stunning set of striped West African ebony back and sides, setting the tone (literally) for an inspiring playing experience. The PS12ce 12-Fret boasts a warm, responsive low end balanced by clear treble notes, with pleasing overtones from the redwood top. The 12-fret setup gives this guitar its relaxed, easy handfeel, while the shifted bridge location pumps up the midrange power. Rich appointments include colorful paua abalone around the body--including the sculpted ebony armrest--and along the fretboard as part of our Nouveau inlay scheme, helping to express the sublime aesthetic of the series. The guitar also comes with our proprietary ES2 electronics for natural amplified tone and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
Grand Concert Shape
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Sinker Redwood Top Woods
Tight grain structure and cross-grain stiffness produce a bold and brilliant response with warm overtones. Think cedar on steroids.
African Ebony Body Woods
A dense wood typically used for fretboards and bridges, ebony produces rich overtones.
Expression System 2 Electronics
The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
