Taylor 312ce 6-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 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 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 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 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'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 6-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
This super-comfortable Taylor 312ce acoustic-electric guitar absolutely rings out with brightness and clarity!

Acoustic sweetness

I'm in my 60s. Been playin since I was 10. Gig regularly solo and with groups. Have owned dozens of guitars and do all of my own setups. This is the only acoustic I ever got that was perfect right out of the box. I expected a lot for a guitar in this price range.. Not the loudest acoustic unplugged but the dynamics of this instrument really shine plugged in. . Totally satisfied.
