The Taylor 322ce 12-Fret Acoustic-Electric combines the comfortable Grand Concert Body Shape with Taylor's Award-Winning V-Class Bracing for an incredibly voluminous, warm, and rich-sounding small-bodied guitar. With Blackwood Back and Sides combined with a Mahogany Top, just about everything sounds like a lullaby on this beauty!
Taylor's V-Class bracing lends extra power, sustain, and sweetness to this cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert, broadening its musical range. Blackwood back and sides produce a strong voice—even in small-body GC—with a meaty midrange focus and a splash of top-end shimmer. The mahogany top adds a touch of natural compression to smooth out the response.
The combination of a 12-fret neck, slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, and a shifted bridge position (closer to the center of the lower bout) produces a slinkier left hand feel. This makes an excellent choice for players who crave the comfort of a compact frame. If you experience neck or shoulder issues while playing a 14 fret guitar, a 12 fretter could be the answer!
With its microphone-friendly voice, it also makes a great choice for recording, and with the ES2 electronics, produces a clear, flavorful amplified sound. This guitar shows up ready to roll on stage, at the studio, or on the couch!
The dark and earthy aesthetic incorporates a shaded Edgeburst top over the dusky mahogany top, black binding, an all-satin finish, a black pickguard, and small diamond inlays in Italian acrylic.
