The Taylor 812ce Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Natural offers premium tonewoods and one of the most comfortable combinations of body size, shape, and ergonomic upgrades! An Ergonomic Armrest, V-Class Bracing, The Expression System 2, and the Classic Tonewood Combo of Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood make this a phenomenal choice for any player. It's comfy on the couch, sweet on the mic, and a performer when plugged in!
Sitka Spruce is the most often used tonewood for the tops of any acoustic stringed instrument. This wood projects with impressive volume and allows tonal influence from the woods chosen as the back and sides. What do Acoustic Guitars, Mandolins, Ukuleles, Violins, Cellos, and Basses have in common? Sitka Spruce!
Indian Rosewood is another revered tonewood that adds exceptional depth, richness, and harmonic complexity. This wood has always been loved but it's never been so expensive! Not only has Rosewood, in general, experienced a rocky couple of years with supply, now with Covid and how bad things got in India because of Covid, but we have also already seen price increases on guitars built with it.
Taylor's Neck Profile is so nice, they basically put the same neck on every guitar and nobody seems to mind! The neck on this guitar is made from Tropical Mahogany and it is topped with a delicious Ebony Fingerboard with a 15" fingerboard radius. 24.8" scale length allows for a slinkier feel on the strings. They aren't as taut as you'd find on any guitar with a length of over 25". 1.75" Nut Width puts the strings right under your fingers. A Tusq Nut offers fantastic tone transfer and great tuning stability.
The Expression System 2 from Taylor is about as easy to use as pickups come these days. Being easy to use is worthless if the pickup doesn't sound good but Taylor has this covered! The Expression System 2 features controls for Volume, Bass, and Treble. Dialing in your tone is fast, easy, and predictable. This pickup system makes the guitar applicable no matter
