Taylor Guitars' master luthier Andy Powers talks about the tradition of the 12-fret guitar, how the design was lost in the 1920s as it gave way to the 14-fret neck, and why its unique tonal properties and handfeel have led to a revival among modern players. He also describes the playing comfort and surprising tonal properties that players can expect in Taylor’s small-body Grand Concert 12-fret models.
