With all the greatest features from one of the greatest companies in the acoustic game, the Taylor 312ce 12-fret leaves little to be desired. With its Sitka spruce top and 12-Fret Grand Concert cutaway body, excellent features including Taylor's V-Class bracing, and remarkable ES2 electronics, this Taylor is likely to become the go-to finger-style guitar in any collection.

Sitka Spruce Top and 12-Fret Grand Concert Cutaway Body
Grand Concerts are great in so many ways. The model is an indispensable part of Taylor's acoustic line. Giving genuinely beautiful tone and resonance, it's popular with finger-style guitarists, thanks to its petite body size. This 312ce 12-Fret is carved from Sapele, a wood that maintains lively highs. It's topped with Sitka spruce, an excellent choice for a resonant, vibrant soundboard. The neck meets the body at the 12th fret, giving it a compact feel that most guitarists find very comfortable—and because the body features a Venetian cutaway, you can still attain easy upper fret access.

Excellent Features Including Taylor's V-Class Bracing
The V-Class bracing system from Taylor increases resonance and volume concurrently. The V shaped bracing, running from a point at the end of the body around past the soundhole, allows the Sitka spruce to flex such that it can realize powerful volume, while the firmness in the center of the guitar produces notes that resonate for longer. V-Class bracing also removes interference, which can cause notes to sound slightly out of tune. Thus, this guitar will sound consistent anywhere on the neck. Additionally, this 312ce has lovely black binding, a West African ebony fretboard with gemstone Italian acrylic inlays, and a satin finish.

Remarkable ES2 Electronics
The Taylor 312ce 12-Fret features an amplification innovation by Taylor. The Expression System 2 was designed to capture all the attractive acoustic sounds from this guitar. Placed behind the saddle, the ES2 pickup has three well-positioned sensors to capture a dynamic range of sound like you'd never imagine. The onboard ES2 preamp allows you to modify your sound, with volume, treble and bass controls.
