Best Grand Concert Guitars With Mahogany Back in 2024

Here are the top Grand Concert style guitars with Mahogany back. This is the type of wood found in many top-of-the-line guitars, so that's a positive point for the build quality. This red-looking wood Mahogany is found in Africa and Central America and has great sustain and a warm tone due to its high density. The downside about this type of wood is that it's relatively heavy.
