Overview

This 12-fret edition of the classic Taylor 812CE is an ideal choice for anyone who wants a robust, full tone from a smaller package

Classic tonewoods and a Grand Concert bodyshape combine beautifully for vintage Taylor tone, but the 12-fret version allows for a more intimate playing experience perfectly suited for fingerpickers and smaller bodied players. By attaching the neck to the body at the 12th fret, instead of the regular 14th, it offers a short-scale playing style and offers more focus on the top end tone, some melodic finger style runs sound sweet and sharp. Combine this with an alternative bridge position on the bout, venetian cutaway and optimised body bracing, and the 812CE is instantly transformed into a punchy tone machine!

The Sitka Spruce / Indian Rosewood edition of this guitar offers a perfect balance between top end chime and mid-range consistency, and is frequently used by Taylor for their complementary tonal properties. It pairs really well with this Grand Concert body, and this should definitely be on the radar for country pick style players who need presence as part of an instrument mix or for recording applications.

It's amazing to think that such a small adjustment in the set-up of the neck can make such a vast difference to the playability and tone of your guitar. The 812ce 12-fret is proof that Taylor's acute attention to detail and craftsmanship really allow you to find your perfect fit, and is certainly worth playing alongside the regular 812ce in your local PMT Store and see if this is the right one for you!
