This exclusive Taylor Roadshow limited edition 12 fret guitar offers a great combination of tone woods. This guitar was built with a Torrified Sitka Spruce Top and AA figured Blackwood set for the back and sides. It looks a lot like Hawaiian Koa and has quite a similarly bright tonal quality. The addition of progressive diamond inlays are a classy touch to the cosmetics of the 712ce 12-fret. This guitar is seriously stunning!
The Torrified process is essentially roasting the woods at low temperatures for long periods of time. The result is a guitar that was made recently but sounds like it's 60 years old. All the big manufacturers are hip to how this process works and it's becoming more and more common, especially in the acoustic guitar world. The top has taken on a slightly darker complexion than that of an untreated Sitka top. This is normal for torrified woodsa, in fact the longer the roast the darker the tint. This guitar also comes loaded with the Expression System 2 pickup system.
Other notable features include a tropical Mahogany satin finished neck with an Ebony Fingerboard. A 24.875" Scale length and a 1.75" Nut Width combine for a super easy playing, smooth feeling neck that can be played comfortably for many fatigue-less hours. This guitar is part of a limited edition and was only offered to Roadshow Participants.
