The Taylor 212ce Acoustic-Electric Guitar offers considerable bang for the buck. Made in the Tecate Mexico Factory, this guitar offers a Sitka Spruce top married to layered Indian Rosewood back and sides. This is a lush-sounding guitar that has a rich warmth to it that'll keep you strumming for hours!
The combo of Sitka Spruce and Rosewood has been perhaps the most desired wood pairing throughout the history of the acoustic guitar. The solid Spruce top pumps out sound beautifully and efficiently. While the layered Indian Rosewood back and sides add harmonic density and complexity to the mix.
Taylor Guitars seem to be the most consistent feeling and playing guitars on the market today. If you like the way one Taylor plays, you'll probably like most of them. The 212ce features a slim Taylor neck made from Neo-Tropical Mahogany that is topped with a Crelicam Ebony fingerboard. 24 7/8" Scale length provides less string tension making it easier on the fingers and a little less twangy.
From the Taylor Website... With a solid Sitka spruce top, layered rosewood back and sides, and an easy-playing Taylor neck, the 212ce offers an exceptionally comfortable playing experience paired with bold sound. Players will notice a clear, balanced response with an articulate character that's perfect for fingerstyle play and recording applications. A slightly narrower neck width means easy fretting, making this a great choice for players of all skill levels. Onboard ES2 electronics faithfully translate the 212ce's tone whenever you need to plug in and play. Traditional appointments and a structured gig bag for storage and transportation round out the package.
