The Taylor 712ce combines a classic acoustic voice with the modern short-scale playability of a Grand Concert body shape, perfect for the player who wants to add a vintage voice to their existing acoustic lineup without sacrificing comfort or versatility.
The warm, rich hues of Taylor's select Rosewood back & sides offer a very similar tonal response to a Mahogany body, but with an extended frequency response in both directions. The end result is a sparkling top end, but an equally warm and rich bottom end without the emphasised mid-range boost that a hog top offers. Rosewood also looks superb when contrasted with the Vintage Sunburst glossy finish, allowing the detailed grain structure to breathe for that trademark Taylor old school aesthetic look. A solid Sitka Spruce top stays nice and rigid, whilst remaining lightweight for comfort and clear tone projection.
Creamy ivoroid outlines the body, fretboard, headstock and soundhole, and also is used for the neo-traditional Heritage Diamonds fretboard inlay.
With Taylor's continual refresh and re-voice of their guitars over time, the 712CE has now inherited Taylor's patented Expression System 2 pickup, which offers one of the industry's best preamp systems. This makes the 700 series a no-brainer for recording artists and live players who want an authentic reproduction of their guitar's natural tone as soon as they plug in. A patented behind-the-saddle design, with carefully placed internal body sensors and an upgraded pre-amp (which makes it 25% hotter for plenty of gain headroom), mean you can be sure every nuance of your technique will be heard regardless of your playing style.
The vintage sophistication of the 712ce is rounded off with a stylish venetian cutaway, which offers a unique tone projection and plenty of upper fret access.
