The Taylor 400 series allows players to enjoy solid African ovangkol's responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs beautifully with Sitka spruce and will satisfy a wide range of players. Each instrument comes standard with a three-ring rosette, a tortoise pickguard and white binding that applies a crisp complement against the mottled brown hues of ovangkol. New for 2015, all of the Taylor 400 series instruments now feature a beautiful full-gloss body finish, Italian acrylic dot fingerboard inlays, and Taylor's premium Expression System 2 electronics for peerless plugged-in performance.

Players who feel more comfortable with a smaller-sized body and short-scale neck will fall in love the 412e. The most compact of the 400 series line up, the 412e takes form in Taylor's Grand Concert body shape. Paired with solid ovangkol back & sides, a Sitka spruce soundboard and forward shifted bracing with Taylor's tone-enhancing relief rout, the 412e packs more volume and tone than you'd typically expect from a guitar of its size. The 412e has a surprisingly full low-end, a potent midrange and a nice treble sparkle that makes it perfect for those elegant fingerstyle arrangements or bluesy flatpicked riffs. At the same time, it also has enough power for strumming chords despite its smaller body dimensions. The shorter 24-7/8"-scale tropical mahogany neck is carved into an exceptionally comfortable profile and sports an ebony fretboard with 20 frets. Whether you're recording in the studio, playing a small coffee shop gig, or playing on stage in a mix with other instruments, the onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics will faithfully convey the 412e's natural acoustic voice through any acoustic amp or PA system. A set of Taylor nickel tuners, a Tusq nut & saddle, and an ebony bridge round out this attractive, performance-ready package. Includes hardshell case.
