The mahogany-top cutaway Grand Concert 322ce will appeal to rootsy fingerstyle players craving a comfortable playing experience. The 24-7/8-inch neck makes fretting and bending strings easier, while the blackwood/mahogany wood pairing yields a surprisingly warm and dynamic tonal response for a smaller body, bolstered further by this year’s addition of V-Class bracing.
Our new bracing pattern, which enables the soundboard to produce a more orderly response to the string vibration, translates into greater volume and projection with longer sustain, enhancing this guitar’s already warm, sweet response. A smooth shaded edgeburst adds a tasteful vintage look that complements the rich-grained mahogany top.
Appointments include a black pickguard, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, black binding with crisp white top trim, 3-ring rosette, and satin finish. The guitar comes equipped with a Venetian cutaway and Expression System 2 electronics for organic plugged-in acoustic tone.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Tropical Mahogany Top
The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Tasmanian Blackwood Body
Blackwood produces a strong volume, with a focused midrange and rich top-end shimmer.
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.
A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
