Taylor 312ce-N 12-Fret Electro Acoustic Guitar Natural
With the 312ce-N, Taylor have managed to find the perfect balance between Sapele's bright and focused tonal response, with the naturally mellow flavours of a nylon string guitar's sound, housed in their comfortable Grand Concert acoustic guitar body-type.
Comfortable to play, premium-quality, Nylon String electro-acoustic Guitar
Taylor's Grand Concert body shape is relatively small and comfortable compared to it's big brother (the Grand Auditorium), and has been designed specifically with acoustic fingerstyle players in mind. The tapered waist design helps keep the guitar's overtones in check, resulting in a sound that's both clear and tonally balanced in a comfortable-to-play package.
The 312ce-N's construction pairs both a Sitka Spruce top - one of the most popular tonewoods around - with Sapele back & sides - widely regarded as one of the best all-around tonewoods there is. The solid Sitka Spruce top combines both strength and elasticity, which results in a broad dynamic range with bright articulation, helping to really project the guitar's voice with plenty of clarity.
Sapele is not only tonally comparible to Mahogany - albeit with a little extra treble zing - but is also highly sustainable too, making it an environmentally responsible wood choice. Together with the Sitka Spruce top, the Sapele body helps the 312ce-N deliver a sound that's not only as mellow as you could want a nylon-stringed guitar to be, but with enough dynamic clarity to sit well in the mix, whether you're in the studio or performing live with a band.
Taylor ES-N Electronics
The ES-N is an under-saddle transducer pickup system, with a preamp design and controls that have been customised to fully compliment a guitar with nylon strings. The standard control knobs help you shape the tone whilst preserving the natural design aesthetic of the guitar. Whether you're performing live or in the studio, the ES-N pickup system makes the experience that little bit more comfortable.
Whilst the price of the 312ce-N may seem a little out of reach for some guitarists, it's certainly an investment worth making for those that are serious about their craft. To help with this though, here at PMT we have a range of finance options available (including 0% interest), allowing you to spread the cost over several months.
