Taylor 812ce 12-Fret LTD Redwood Top Guitar
The Taylor 812ce 12-fret LTD combines the intimate size of the Grand Concert body with a short-scale neck making a compact guitar that is very comfortable to play. The addition of a 12-fret neck and a redwood top to the package produces a guitar with more volume and a more calibrated bass to treble response then any small guitar has a right to. The 812ce has Taylor’s Advanced Performance bracing with the relief rout and hide glue construction, a setup that allows the top to respond quickly to even the lightest touch and enhances the guitar’s clarity and articulation.
The simple cosmetic appointments focus your attention on the natural beauty of the wood. The rich color of the redwood top is subtly framed by the pale maple binding which also contrasts nicely with the Indian rosewood sides and back. The fretboard is made from a striking of figured ebony. This guitar is fitted with Taylor’s Expression 2 pickup, a system that faithfully amplifies the guitar’s exquisite tone. This variation of the 812ce will only be produced in limited numbers.
