What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

A very special piece, this MGCC is crisp, powerful, and brimming with sustain. The combination of Engelmann and Curly Maple has such clarity and power that virtually any style of play is instantly "more". While some guitars demand a certain approach from the player, we passed this one through the hands of several players around the office and it took everything we could throw at it!

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.
