Taylor Guitars is excited to extend the offerings of their 400 Series line with the addition one of the most popular tonewoods in acoustic guitar history: Indian rosewood. Although they have a slightly different sonic profile than the African ovangkol models, the 400 Series Rosewood models still showcase all of the standard 400 Series appointments including a full-gloss body finish, Italian acrylic dot inlays, white binding, a three-ring rosette, and more! If you're looking for a more accessible solid spruce/solid rosewood Taylor model, the 400 Series Rosewood models are an excellent choice.

A 12-string with a rich voice, an outstanding tonal range, and a beautiful 12-string chime, the 456ce-R Rosewood features a Grand Symphony cutaway body made with rosewood back & sides and a Sitka spruce top. Taylor 12-strings are widely known for their incredibly comfortable, superbly playable necks, and the 456ce-R remains true to this reputation. When you plug into an amp or PA system, the voice of the 456ce-R is faithfully amplified thanks to onboard Taylor Expression System 2. Comes complete with an ebony fingerboard & bridge, Taylor nickel tuners, a Tusq nut, and a Micarta saddle. Includes hardshell case.

If you are looking for an axe with distinction, ease of play, look no further...this is it. Only problem, the bass control cuts in-and-out...Taylor customer service is very good...lots of dealers...only 77 of these made as of late 2019...they may be back in production again...compared this to a 562 and a top-of-the-line Breedlove...no comparison.
