What We Think

Downright magical!  Minty, too--you just don't see used guitars in this condition.  It's hard to imagine a better tonewood combination for a modern instrument like this.  The master Italian top affords both clarity and complexity to all manner of right hand attacks, able to completely translate sensitivity and nuance as well as a more firm, authoritative approach.  Palo Escrito is incredible stuff, like the best of mahogany and high-end rosewoods combined--as airy and balanced as it is articulate and glassy.  Truly special in every way, down to the upgraded Gotoh tuners and killer flight case the previous owner invested in.   


Condition: Used, Excellent/Mint

Manufacturer's Description from Goodall

"The Grand Concert model is one of the world's most perfect guitars"

The Grand Concert model is a refined and beautifully proportioned shape, and is everything you could desire from an acoustic guitar and more. Its tone is a wonderful blend of balanced clarity, and punchy projection, with a smooth rich bass response. This instrument is larger than the Parlor but smaller than the Concert Jumbo. It has a singing lyrical treble, with excellent sustain, and is comfortable to hold. Though it is a small guitar, the Grand Concert does not exhibit the tight nasal tonal quality in the midrange and bass that is generally associated with smaller guitars.

"ideal for the fingerstylist and the flatpicker, with the appropriate tonewoods"

While the Grand Concert series is considered ideal for the fingerstylist due to its sensitive, dynamic responsiveness, it is equally appropriate for the flatpicker or plectrum player with the appropriate tonewood combination. It is prized by Bluegrass flatpickers and has even been said to surpass large-bodied dreadnought guitars with respect to its clarity, sustain, and powerful projection.
