With the 612CE, Taylor have taken their maple/spruce Grand Concert guitar, and revoiced it to produce tones that are richer, warmer and more complex. This has been been achieved through a new back bracing profile, a specially rosted top - for that aged tonal character - , protein glues to optimise the tonal transfer, and an ultra-thin 3.5mm gloss finish.
Spruce / Maple construction, Short Scale Neck, and a Stage-Ready ES-2 Pickup system
The 612CE also comes with a whole host of premium appointments, a hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar" stain to its back and sides, and - quite simply - plays like a dream.
The 612CE's Sitka Spruce and Maple tonewood combination results in a guitar with a broad dynamic range, with plenty of warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness, making it perfectly accommodating for a versatile range of playing styles.
Sitka Spruce is one of the most commonly used tonewoods for acoustic guitar tops, and helps generate a broad dynamic range, acommodating numerous play styles, whether you want to go with all-out aggressive strumming or light-fingerpicking.
Guitars with Maple back and sides are renowned for their naturally clear, linear tonal qualities. Featuring a crystal-clear high end, with plenty of rich lows, Maple guitars are voies to be reflective of the guitar players technique, making it perfect for players who vary their picking attack dynamics.
With Taylor's very own ES2 (Expression System 2) you get a revolutionary pickup design that's been engineered to deliver the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guita amplification. Complete with a patented behind-the-saddle pickup with three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors, the ES2 captures a much more dynamic range of acoustic sound than any of its predecessors.
The ES2 is complimented by Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp, which produces a highly-responsive and incredible amplified tone. The combination of the ES2 with this preamp ensures that whether you're on stage and playing through a PA or amp, or even recording in the studio, your guitar signal is recreated as faithfully as possible.
Other Premium Appointments
The 612CE comes complete with a whole host of premium-grade appointments, which add the finishing touches to this beautiful guitar. These include: new-grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays; an inlaid abony backstrap; ebony binding with grained ivoroid purfling; an ebony/grained ivoroid rosette; striped abony pickguard; and a hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar" stain on the guitar's back and sides, which really brings out the striking figure of the Maple, giving it a violin-hued appearance.
