Details


712ce
The rosewood and Lutz spruce 712ce pairs Taylor’s cutaway Grand Concert body with a shorter scale length of 24-⅞ inches for a physically compact and intimate playing experience, making fretting chords easier and reducing the guitar’s string tension for a slinky fretting-hand feel. Taylor has now added V-Class bracing, the new interior sonic engine, which brings new levels of power and sustain to this small-bodied guitar. Fingerstyle players will love the Grand Concert’s responsiveness together with the articulate sonic detail of the rosewood/Lutz spruce wood combo, and the Venetian cutaway offers more room to play up the neck. Wood-rich aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while a new “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim. Taylor’s onboard ES2 electronics add a pro-grade pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.

FEATURES

  • Grand Concert: A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
  • Lutz Spruce Top: This natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce also shares characteristics with Adirondack spruce, responding with power, richness and volume.
  • Indian Rosewood Back & Sides: The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
  • Expression System 2 Electronics: The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
  • Venetian Cutaway: The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
  • V-Class Bracing: A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
