Revoiced in 2015 after meticulous research and refinement from Taylor's master craftsmen, the 612e now stikes the perfect balance between Maple's naturally bright acoustic tone and now a rich, warm mid range with bags of sustain. Aesthetically, The 612e beautifully highlights the natural wood figure thanks to a hand-rubbed Sugar Brown Maple stain on the back and sides, with matching pickguard for ultimate stage presence.
The smaller Grand Concert body of the 612e will appeal to players that prefer the down-sized acoustic model for a more comfortable fit. A slightly shorter scale length, combined with a slimmer body bout and waist, adds to the projection and snap of the top end tone that Maple and Spruce have to offer, great for fingerpickers or light strummers. Taylor's forward-shifted bracing with relief rout is a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin — it “loosens up” the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity.
Added appointments on the 612e include Gold tuners, Tusq Nut and Micarta Saddle, Twisted Oval inlay, Ebony Fretboard and an Abalone rosette. This guitar also comes with a Taylor branded hardshell deluxe case. Taylor's Expression System 2 electronic system now comes fitted with all 2016 electro acoustic models as standard, with their new behind-the-saddle piezo pickup design offering a far more responsive, accurate and louder signal for your live show or recordings than ever before.
The warmth, complexity and sustain offered by the new 600 Maple series really has to be heard to be appreciated. Your local PMT Store can help offer a full in-store demonstration, expert Taylor Acoustic advice and aftersales support, with added benefits of registering online, including a 10 year manufacturer's warranty.
