You are looking at a Taylor 812e 12-Fret Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1106035151. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

The Taylor 800 Series Models gives their flagship rosewood/spruce 800 series guitars a whole new twist, offering up an expansive array of tone-enhancing refinements by optimizing virtually every element of the guitar's material construction. These refinements include customized bracing and wood thickness' for each shape to bring out the best tonal qualities of each, animal protein glue adhesive for superb tonal transfer, a thinner gloss finish and groundbreaking Expression System 2 electronics, all packaged together with a refreshed design aesthetic. With the rebirth of the 800 series, Andy Powers, designer/luthier behind these instruments, sought to highlight the distinctive characteristics and unique acoustic voice of each different body shape.

The Grand Concert body of the 812e 12-Fret is crafted from a Sitka spruce soundboard that's beautifully complemented by Indian rosewood back and sides. The 812e 12-Fret still has that focus, balance and articulation that fingerstylists adore, but now combined with revoiced Advanced Performance bracing with the tone-enhancing Relief Rout, the 812e 12-Fret has a some extra warmth in the midrange with impressive volume and a wide dynamic range despite its smaller body size. In addition, the 12-fret construction provides a bolder attack and a slightly meatier, more robust tonal output in comparison to the standard 812e. The 812e 12-fret is also strung up with a set of Elixir HD Light strings that'll thicken up to your trebles. For a beautiful glossy luster without sacrificing tonal response, the body of the 812ce 12-Fret is all dressed up in a 3.5 mils full-gloss finish that's over 40 percent thinner.

The fingerstyle-friendly short-scale neck of the Taylor 812e 12-Fret is topped off with a light-marbled ebony fingerboard. The fingerboard boasts elegant mother-of-pearl Element fingerboard inlays that were inspired by the diamond-like shape of the various 800 series inlays used throughout the years.

This tastefully appointed 812e 12-Fret Grand Concert makes use of some of the finest materials available—the body, peghead, fingerboard and heelcap are all bound by pale maple and a matching pale maple back strip adds a nice touch. To showcase the rosewood-rich heritage of the 800 series and the wood's natural beauty, the 812e 12-Fret is adorned with stunning rosewood accents which include a rosewood trim along the top edge, a gorgeous rosewood pickguard that's perfectly matched with back and sides, and a stunning green abalone rosette outlined with rosewood. When you want to plug into a PA system or your favorite acoustic amp, onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics offer exceptional plugged-in performance. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
