Overview

Taylor 322E 12-Fret Electro Acoustic, 2016 Model, Blackwood Back and Sides, Mahogany Top, Grand Concert Body Type, with ES2 Electronics

Taylor's 300 Series guitars are primarily aimed at the seasoned guitarist who wants to invest in their craft, with uncompromising appointments, trimmings and solid tonewoods for pristine tonal response.

Ltd Edition Premium-Grade Guitar, Perfect for Fingerstyle Playing

This Limited Edition model 322E 12-Fret features a Grand Concert body shape, 12-fret construction (neck joins the body at the 12th fret, rather than 14th), Tropical Mahogany wood top, Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides, ES-2 pickup system, and a Taylor Deluxe Hard Shell case. 

The comfortable body shape and wood choices makes the 322E appeal to more rootsy, fingerstyle players looking for that supremely comfortable playing experience, and playability is enhanced thanks to the "12-Fret" neck design (usually reserved for the smaller Grand Concert style guitars), slightly shorter scale length, and an elegant Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper note register.

Exquisite Tonewood Choices

This special  model comes with the unusual tonewood combination of Tropical Mahogany top and Tasmanian Blackwood back & sides.  As well as having stunning aesthetics though, the combination of the two provides a surprisingly rich yet articulate voice.

Mahogany, when used as a top wood, produces a natural compression, and while this means that your playstyle may not be quite so responsive as with a spruce-top guitar, it will produce a range of strong fundamentals with clear and direct focus.  This tends to be the top-wood of choice for traditional folk / blues musicians due to it's woody, dry tone.

As a tonewood, Tasmanian Blackwood's tone profile resembles that of Koa or Mahogany in its midrange focus, but with the added splash of top-end shimmer and richness usually found in Rosewood.  This results in a voice that's a little dry and clear, but also warm.

Cutting Edge Electronics & Aesthetics

Taylor’s breakthrough ES2 acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors on the 322CE captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.

As a great example of Taylor's focus on aesthetics, the sloping peak of the Venetian cutaway is elegant in its design, whilst serving as a functional way for performers to make the most of the upper fretboard notes.
