The Taylor 812ce 12-Fret V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar is a professional-quality, Grand Concert-style guitar, with plenty of articulation and exquisite tonal qualities. This ever-popular instrument has now been upgraded to include the new V-Class bracing system, and as such as more tonally robust than ever.

A Smaller Guitar, With a Darker, Punchier Quality

Taylor's illustrious 800 Series plays host to the company's flagship Rosewood/Spruce acoustic guitar models. Each and every component on these guitars has been chosen and refined to bring you the very best playing experience.

With the 812ce 12-Fret V-Class, you get a shorter-scale Grand Concert guitar, topped off with beautiful aesthetics. This supremely-comfortable-to-play instrument is ideal for fingerpickers, and thanks to the inclusion of an ES2 electronics system, live performance and studio time has never been easier.

Taylor 812ce 12-Fret V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar Highlights

  • Premium-grade short-scale guitar that's perfect for fingerpickers
  • 12-fret neck join results in less string tension and a meatier, more robust tonal output
  • Solid Sitka Spruce top with a Solid Indian Rosewood back and sides
  • Features the new V-Class bracing design
  • Venetian cutaway to the lower bout results in easy access to the guitar's upper frets
  • ES2 pickup and preamp makes live performances and studio work easier than ever
  • Includes deluxe hard shell case
  • Home Delivery options available

Classic Tonewood Pairing

Combining the correct tonewoods is arguably the most important factor in the creation of any acoustic guitar, with the most popular combination over the decades being that of Spruce and Rosewood.

Using Rosewood for the body will see the guitar produce an array of versatile, harmonically rich tones. Regarded by many to be a "tonewood superstar", Rosewood is unfortunately reserved for only the finest of guitars due to preservation fears.

For the top piece, Sitka Spruce is as close to an "Industry Standard" as you will get for an acoustic guitar. This wood combines perfectly with the Rosewood body to produce a responsive guitar, with a broad, dynamic range.

All-New Bracing System

Taylor's innovative V-Class bracing system introduces an all-new framework to the inner workings of the guitar.

This bracing transforms the way in which the Spruce top wood vibrates, resulting in notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with one another.

Professional-Grade Preamp

At the heart of the Taylor 812ce 12-Fret you'll find the innovative ES2 pickup and preamp. This incredbile electronics system offers a more dynamic range of acoustic sound than ever before!

Simply plug your Taylor 812ce 12-Fret into a front of house PA system, your favourite acoustic amp, or even directly into recording software, and you'll be guaranteed a faithful conveyance of your guitar's gorgeous tone.
