OFFLINE Taylor 812ce 12-Fret Grand Concert Electro Acoustic Guitar


The Taylor 812ce 12-Fret Grand Concert Electro Acoustic Guitar offers a rich, warm tone, thanks to the tonewood creating a matured mid-range, and a loose luxurious low end.

Fingerpickers will experience true bliss as every single note projects an excellent tone. There's plenty for strummers too, with a warm and deceptively large sound emanating from the small body. This stunning guitar also features the built-in Expression System 2, delivering clear, natural-sounding amplified tones for gigging or recording, enhancing your playing experience. With its rosewood pickguard and trim, maple binding, element inlays, and classic chrome tuners, this Taylor model is a visually stunning instrument, showcasing Taylor's high build quality and design.

Grand Concert Body

The 812ce has a grand concert body, which is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable design. Built with a tapered waist and shorter scale, as well as a lighter string tension, the grand concert shape is perfect for in the studio and on stage. Fingerpickers will fall in love with the clarity and precision of this exceptionally designed guitar body.

Sitka Spruce & Indian Rosewood

The Taylor 812ce 12-Fret features a beautiful sitka spruce top, offering a broad dynamic range and yielding crisp articulation. Sitka spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. This stunning tonewood is contrasted with Indian rosewood back and sides, providing the Taylor with a throaty growl. Rosewood is a versatile tonewood that offers a wide range of possibilities and is an ideal choice for blues and bluegrass players, as it delivers a full low end with a bright treble, and clear articulation.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines, creating a visually stunning look that is recognisable on any body. This type of cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets for a comfortable play, and enables you with more freedom throughout the fingerboard.

The Perfect Guitar Neck

For ultimate playability and peace of mind, the 812ce 12-Fret guitar features Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
