A 12-fret Taylor with Wonderful ToneTaylor's 12-Fret acoustic-electric guitar gives you the perfect blend of mellow tone, vintage style, powerful projection, and modern electronics. Its comfortable Grand Concert body style joins the neck at the 12th fret, giving the Taylor 12-Fret a remarkably strong voice, despite its smaller-than-average size. A solid Western red cedar top and a tropical American mahogany back and sides also add brilliant warmth to its naturally balanced tone, making it a perfect choice if you're a singer-songwriter. What's more, it comes loaded with Taylor's Expression System electronics, so the Taylor 12-Fret even sounds amazing plugged in.
Taylor 12-Fret Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
12-fret Grand Concert body style provides phenomenal volume and balanced tone
Taylor's 12-Fret's Grand Concert body style is a take on a body style that was popular back in the days before onboard electronics or even PA systems - back when musicians had to rely solely on the acoustic projection of their instruments. This body shape effectively moves the bridge back on the 12-Fret's soundboard, dramatically increasing its volume. It also brings out naturally warm midrange tone, along with deep bass and clearly defined highs. On top of all of that, you'll find the 12-Fret's Grand Concert body shape remarkably comfortable to play, making it an absolutely fantastic acoustic-electric guitar!
Western red cedar and mahogany are a singer-songwriter's dream come true
If you want an acoustic guitar that takes a mild touch and provides a smooth and mellow tone, the Taylor 12-Fret is it! The combination of a slightly dark mahogany body with a lyrically warm Western red cedar top has been a combination of tonewoods favored by singer-songwriters throughout history. But you don't have to be a solo performer to fall in love with the 12-Fret's tone - its also a great for accompanying another guitarist playing a spruce-topped guitar.
Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 12-Fret's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve. Unlike standard onboard electronics, the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 12-Fret from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
