Super-comfortable Body, Vibrant Nylon-string Tone

Taylor's 312ce-N nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar satisfies the needs of both traditional nylon-string guitarists and steel-string players looking to branch out. In addition to its super-comfortable Grand Concert body, this instrument provides you with impressive dynamic range, with both clear brightness and rich depth. The combination of sapele - a mahogany-like tonewood - and a Sitka spruce top projects effortlessly and supplies an endless well of sonic warmth. Unplugged, this acoustic-electric guitar's Grand Concert cutaway shape offers exceptional tonal balance and volume, and thanks to its onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics, it also sounds fantastic when you plug in. Take it from Sweetwater - you'll love this Taylor 312ce-N acoustic-electric guitar.

Taylor 312ce-N Nylon-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
  • Sitka spruce and sapele provide balanced warmth and sparkle
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound
Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance

Arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style, this Taylor 312ce-N acoustic-electric guitar's smaller-than-average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. That makes this 312ce-N a particularly good fit if you're a fingerstylist or if you have shorter arms.

Sitka spruce and sapele provide balanced warmth and sparkle

This 312ce-N acoustic-electric guitar is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle. This acoustic-electric guitar's sapele back and sides also give it a warm and mellow quality, similar to that of mahogany, providing it with a well-balanced tone. Additionally, a satin finish with a gloss top offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into this 312ce-N acoustic-electric guitar. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into this 312ce-N's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.

Taylor 312ce-N Nylon-string Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Sitka spruce and sapele provide balanced warmth and sparkle
  • Ebony fingerboard provides phenomenal comfort and playability
  • Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound
  • Small diamond fingerboard inlay and Indian rosewood headstock overlay for elegant appearance
  • Satin finish with gloss top offers protection and good looks
