Deluxe Grand Concert Guitar

As a Grand Concert guitar, the Taylor 812ce 12-Fret DLX has a more focused sound than you get from larger sizes such as dreadnought and jumbo guitars.

With its direct, intimate and articulate sound, it is ideal for fingerstyle and solo performance as well as studio recording.

Crafting the Taylor 812ce 12-Fret DLX

Made with what many proclaim the ultimate acoustic guitar wood combination, the Taylor 812ce 12-Fret DLX has a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides.

Sitka Spruce is Taylor’s favourite top wood because of its broad dynamic range, rich tone and versatility.

Similarly, the Indian Rosewood used for the back and sides is extremely versatile and imbues your tone with rich character and extra volume.

A Venetian cutaway to the body adds modern playability giving you access to the higher frets while its elegant slope adds to the great looks of this gorgeous guitar.

V-Class Bracing

A great leap forward from more common X-style bracing, Taylor have launched their innovative V-Class bracing.

This new bracing type manages to keep the stiffness of the resonating top while allowing it to be extremely flexible.

As a result, you get a lot more volume and increased sustain. Furthermore; the top will be much more in tone with the strings so you get a crisper, less muddy sound from the guitar.

Playing Comfort

Adding to your playing comfort so you can play better for longer are a few great features.

One such feature is the ergonomic radius armrest which has Indian Rosewood binding tying it together with the overall aesthetic of the guitar.

Attached to the body via sturdy scarf joint is a Tropical Mahogany neck that has a super smooth Satin finish so your hand will just glide up and down it.

What’s more, with the neck joining the body at the 12th fret, it’s more compact and manageable to hold than its 14-fret counterpart.

Atop the neck is a beautifully smooth West African Ebony fretboard providing you with a great fingering area.

Expression System 2 Electronics

With many electro-acoustic guitars, while they may sound great acoustically, they lose all their character as soon as they’re plugged in and amplified.

That’s why Taylor have given you Expression System 2 electronics.

Boasting a new behind-the-saddle design, all the nuances of your performance and the character of the guitar itself can be captured.

Plus, thanks to the professional-grade preamp, with volume and tone controls, all that great sound Is retained and enhanced for you and your audience to enjoy.

Gorgeous Looks

Another great point that must be mentioned when discussing the Taylor 812ce 12-Fret DLX is that it has fantastic looks that match the great playability and tone it produces.

With wood binding used throughout and a Rosewood pickguard, the guitar has a gorgeously rich and woody aesthetic.

The Ebony fretboard is adorned with Mother of Pearl Element inlays while the soundhole boasts an Abalone 2014 800 Series rosette for added class.

Add It to Your Collection

The Taylor 812ce 12-Fret comes to you in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case; a fitting place for a deluxe guitar and the perfect way to protect your new Taylor guitar either at home or on the road.
