The Quintessential Small-bodied Acoustic-electric Guitar
The one thing that all acoustic guitarists have in common, whether they are a beginner or experienced professional, is that once they pick up a Taylor, it's the beginning of a life-long love affair. Even the occasional player finds themselves devoting more and more time to playing their new Taylor. In fact, one such part-time player, a lawyer, wrote a letter to Taylor stating that he was spending more time playing his new Taylor and less time on his law practice. If you're looking for a small-bodied guitar with a big sound that you can fall in love with, then the Taylor 312ce Grand Concert is your guitar.Taylor Guitar 312ce at a Glance:
