Thanks to Taylor's upgraded Advanced Performance Bracing system, ES2 electronics and 12-fret neck joint design, this 2014 re-issue of the Grand Concert Taylor 812e has become an instant hit with anyone who demands Taylor's trademark 'big body' sound but from a smaller, more manageable acoustic body.
Due to the 24.875" scale length, smaller players or recording artists will instantly appreciate how easy it is to fret and play this model. It's articulate and intimate, with the Grand Concert body very similar to their Baby BT series for focused, direct tonal response that fits really well with other instruments and traditional fingerpickers. The 812e 12-Fret's modified bracing and shorter scale length give you a darker and punchier tone than the standard 14-fret model, enhanced by the Rosewood back & sides that provide a more rich, chocolately aesthetic appeal too. Not only the body wood, but the 812e 12-Fret also includes a rosewood pickguard and top edge trim for real sophistication. Combined with a traditional Sitka Spruce top, Rosewood's 'throaty' growl and high-end snap make the 812e a superb all-rounder and offers a nice warm, balanced tone response.
The 812e 12-Fret also embodies Taylor's proprietary Expression System 2 pickup, which has won the hearts of live sound engineers and artists alike thanks to an upgraded, hotter pre-amp gain signal (up to 25% louder than its predecessor), easy-to-use tone/volume control knob system, and a patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The end result is that your natural acoustic tone isn't lost as soon as you plug it in, and you've got peace of mind that your sound is as good as it can possibly be.
