    Delivers shimmering clarity and full bass that's surprising in this smaller-bodied instrument

    The Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar has volume that belies its size. The slotted peghead and short-scale neck deliver a more "woody" tone and an unbelievably easy feel on the fretboard. The time-honored tone of an Indian rosewood and Western Red cedar pairing is a mainstay of nearly every high-end guitar builder. Taylor sources the finest quality materials to deliver all the clarity, sustain, and bass response one would expect from this classic combination. Other features of the GA7 include an Ivoroid bound neck, heel, and body, Indian rosewood headstock overlay, and a beautiful abalone rosette and fretboard dots, and a traditional slotted peghead.

    Because of its smaller size, the Taylor GC7 Grand Concert is a curvy and comfortable, "intimate" guitar—something to wrap oneself around. Its clarity, balanced response, scaled-down proportions, and scalloped bracing make it ideal for fingerstyle playing. Stage performers appreciate its body-friendly size and contours, and those who work in the recording studio love its controlled overtones

    The sounds of a sunset

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    This guitar is an intimate guitar; it should be played in a chamber, a living room, a porch; for close friends or a good dog. It is like a personal conversation, not to be shared with a crowd. To my ears, it sounds good playing classical pieces, modern finger-style folk or slack key. It does fall apart a bit during strumming with a plectrum; it's really suited for the hand.
    The sound. If you have ever had the luxury of witnessing a sunset on or very near a tropical beach, then you will understand; specifically I'm speaking of the thirty minutes before and the thirty minutes after sunset. The colors intensify in a way that it feels as though one's vision changes. Greens are brighter, blues are deeper, there are oranges, pinks, violets not visible during normal daylight hours; life seems to sparkle. With this guitar, the Taylor Company seems to have taken the colors of a tropical beach sunset and converted them to sound. The GC7 is sweet and pure, deep and rich, full and alive with complex tones not found in many guitars. I assume it's the combination of cedar/rosewood tone woods coupled with the concert design, but maybe it's the engineering and care during design/construction. Whatever it is, it's beautiful to the ears.
    This guitar is flawless in presentation. I have scrutinized it under bright indoor light as well as sunlight. I was unable to find even the most remote of imperfections.
    It is made in the U.S.A.; there was a day that stood for something and meant one would receive an outstanding product at a fair price. The GC7 delivers on the product, but not at what I would consider a fair price, when foreign competitors are delivering similar guitars at literally half the price. I would like to add however, when compared to other American guitar manufacturers, it is quite a bargain.

    Not Impressed with Sound!

    By Kiva238

    from Arizona

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    I ordered this model Taylor GC7 and it arrived in perfect condition and well set up. Pretty as a picture to look at and I so wanted it to sound great. It didn't and I returned it within a few short days.
    Unfortunately for this Taylor, I had a 2007 Martin 000-28VS there to compare it to and there was no comparison! The Martin ate the Taylor for lunch. The Taylor was bright, thin and brittle when A/B'ed with the Martin. I fingerpick quite a bit and found the narrower neck on the Taylor to be a bit too narrow for my liking. The Taylor sounded like a middle of the road, generic acoustic compared to the lush fullness of the Martin. I played them for friends and the opinion was instantaneous and unanimous. Quick end to the Taylor experiment.
    Since that time, I have purchased another 000-28VS(2001 vintage) which is even better sounding than the one I first compared the Tayor to, as well as a newer 000-15s. While the 28's are 50% more expensive than the Taylor and should be expected to sound great, the 15s is equally great sounding, in a different way, and only about half the cost of the Taylor. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another 000-15s, and would not buy the Taylor. I expected better tone for the money.
    Love the slotted headstock and lack of pickguard.
    No complaints here. Perfectly put together and a delight to the eye.
    I suppose value is relative, and as a work of guitarmaking it is top notch. But I have to offset that with the fact that it sounds mediocre for the $$$ invested.

    A Taylor that sounds a lot like a Martin

    By FrankK

    from Midwest.

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    I'm definitely a Martin guy, but I love this Taylor. I walked into my local music store earlier today to try a Martin OM-28v and a Martin OMJM (I have a birthday coming up). The sales guy asked if I wanted to try this Taylor and I said, "No thanks, I don't like Taylors." He replied, "Why don't you try this one?"So I sat down with the GC7es and after playing it for a couple minutes said, "I can't believe how much I like this guitar." It's really a very nice marriage of Taylor playability and Martin tone with the added adornments that Taylor throws in A LOT cheaper than Martin does (abalone inlays, tusk nut and saddle, neck binding, ebony fretboard, etc.).The small body, wide nut, short scale neck, neck shape, and the binding around the neck, make for a very, very comfortable and easy to play guitar. In addition, these can be setup very low without getting fret buz. All I can say about the tone is it is very near that classic Martin tone that so many fall in love with. It has a voice that is different from other Taylors I have played.Bottom line: at this price point, this guitar is a great value and something that might do the impossible -- satisfy Martin fans and Taylor fans simultaneously.

    Taylor GC7 - Marvelous Small Wonder

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    I've owned several guitars including the Taylor 810ce, 414ce ltd, 412ce, GC5, an Ovation Baladeer, Martin Alternative X and a high-end Alvarez Yairi dreadnaught. My style is moderate strumming with finger style too in the context of alternative acoustic songs (think acoustic Tragically Hip, or BNL). Observations of the GC7:* Unusually lightweight!* Well balanced sound including ample low end.* Smooth feel, especially neck.* Sounds great with the Expression System.This is a guitar that is remarkable in terms of tone. Changing strings requires fiddling in order to work around the slotted headstock, but is worth it.

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    Great fingersttyle guitar. Cedar top is fabulous. It has a warm sound. Rosewood body delivers highs and lows well. Over priced (As most acoustics are)

    Beautiful Guitar

    By Waterboy156

    from Ottawa, ON

    Comments about Taylor GC7 Rosewood/Cedar Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar (2010 Model):

    I just tried this guitar at a local store. It is one of the most comfortable acoustics I have ever played. I compared it to the Eric Clapton Martin, although the Martin was louder I did perfer the tone of the Taylor. Its an easy player and feels so natural. It has an ebony board which looks beautiful. Im selling my PRS McCarty (electric) to buy this one. Id highly recommend trying it out.
