The Taylor 856ce 12 String Acoustic Electric guitar is built with a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. 1.875" Nut Width is wide enough for an easy playing 12 string but thin enough to manage for those of us with smaller hands. The Grand Symphony body style with a cutaway give you fantastic projection with a more expressive upper register.
Some 12 String Guitars have a large sound but lack articulation. Not the 856. From the wood selection, to the body choice and the bracing, every step along the build process has been taken to provide the best possible tones possible. On top of a rich tonal palette this is easily one of the more playable 12 string acoustic guitars we have had inquire a long time. All Taylor's play great but when you find a 12 that's is this easy, you've found something special!
Taylor’s 12-string 856ce blends power, balance and crystal-clear articulation, harnessing rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range to give players an expressive 12-string. An ultra-playable Taylor neck and Florentine cutaway make for easy fretting into the upper register, and proprietary Expression System 2 acoustic electronics translate all the sonic detail into a rich amplified sound. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.
