This Taylor 512ce Urban Ironbark Acoustic-Electric Guitar is brand new and comes with its original hardshell case and manufacturer's warranty. Urban Red Ironbark is used on the 2022 model 512ce for its back and sides. This responsibly sourced wood from Southern California is the latest addition to the Taylor line-up and it must be heard!
With a Janka Hardness rating closer to Ebony than Rosewood, Ironbark provides a dense, harmonically rich tone that is loud and muscular, yet sweet, and piano-like with complexity and depth across the entire spectrum.
The wood selected for the top is Torrefied Spruce. The torrefication process helps reduce moisture content and eliminate sugars and starches within a piece of wood. Learn more about the process and check out Matt's Blog about this very subject!
The neck is made from Mahogany and carved to Taylor's Standard Profile. This is a very comfortable neck that feels familiar the moment it hits your hands. The fingerboard is made from West African Crelicam Ebony as is the bridge. 1.75" nut width provides the perfect amount of space to work with and 25.5" scale length gives the strings some real snap and a crisp sound.
Of course, the Taylor Expression System 2.0 is a thing of beauty. Easy to use, sounds phenomenal, and it's easier to work on than many other antiquated systems out there. This guitar is ready for anything you can throw at it from the minute you crack open the case.
