A Full-voiced Acoustic-electric 12-string GuitarThe Taylor 856ce is an acoustic-electric 12-string guitar that's primed for brawny, full-voiced tone. That's because not only is it constructed with premier tonewoods - there are a solid Sitka spruce top, an Indian rosewood body, and a Tropical mahogany neck - but it also features a cutaway Grand Symphony body style in addition to Taylor's top-notch Expression System. Other appointments include gold-plated tuners, an ebony fingerboard, and maple binding. Take your Taylor 856ce onstage or mic it up in the studio - it's a fine example of Taylor's 12-string know-how.
Taylor 856ce 12-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
Choice tonewoods and GS body style give you big tone
Taylor's 856ce is designed to make the most of the beautiful 12-string sound, thanks to its Grand Symphony body style. You'll enjoy excellent articulation, but enhanced projection - it's a perfect guitar for laying down tracks in the studio, but it's also a great choice onstage. As far as tonewoods, the Taylor 856ce features a solid Sitka spruce top alongside an Indian rosewood body. The neck comprises beautiful Tropical mahogany that opposes a smooth black ebony fingerboard. And, a carefully carved Venetian cutaway gives you comfortable access to the 856ce's upper frets.
Taylor Expression System electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce the Taylor 856ce's native tone, the Taylor Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve - and the system is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
Exceptional Taylor quality and playability
There's nothing like a Taylor. Once you get your hands on the 856ce 12-string acoustic-electric guitar, you'll never want to play anything else! But, what is it that makes a Taylor acoustic so good? For starters, each Taylor is made out of premium tonewoods, for great sound that only gets better with age. You'll also love the easy playing neck. Even if you're primarily an electric player, you'll feel totally comfortable getting around on this neck. Another Taylor hallmark is their commitment to consistent quality and attention to detail. From the innovative neck joint to the durable, top-notch finish, your Taylor is built to play and sound absolutely great, right from the moment you pick it up. Don't settle for less; treat yourself to a Taylor!
