The first Builder’s Edition guitar from the 900 Series blends the style and sound of a rosewood/spruce Grand Concert with inviting, player-friendly features. Built to the exacting specifications of comfort and tone developed by Andy Powers, this 912ce features back and sides of solid East Indian rosewood paired with a Lutz spruce top. The Grand Concert’s compact frame makes it an ideal choice for players who value finesse and a delicate touch, offering wide dynamic range to allow you to explore your musical ideas all the way across the tonal spectrum. V-Class bracing is a natural partner with Indian rosewood, helping that wood’s naturally textured overtones to bloom and resonate with greater sustain while adding overall volume and musicality. This Builder’s Edition is crafted for an optimal, seamless playing experience that allows you to sound and feel your best, thanks to a beveled armrest, contoured body and fretboard edges, and a beveled cutaway that makes it easier than ever to access the higher notes on the neck. Aesthetic appointments include stunning abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays in a new Bellefleur design. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
