Check out This 12-fret Taylor A/E

Once considered "old-fashioned," 12-fret guitars are making a comeback - and Taylor is spearheading the resurgence. The Taylor 322ce 12-Fret acoustic-electric sports a somewhat shorter scale length that gives you enhanced responsiveness and a soft, slinky handfeel that many Sweetwater guitarists (including finger-pickers) are really enjoying. In spite of its smaller Grand Concert body size, the 322ce 12-Fret serves up powerful and alluringly warm tone with impressive sustain. Its blackwood back and sides provide robust midrange focus with a hint of high-end shimmer, while the mahogany top evens out the overall tonal response. Take the stage with the Taylor 322ce 12-Fret, and the onboard ES2 electronics amplify that great tone flawlessly.

Taylor 322ce 12-Fret Features:
  • Body joins the neck at the 12th fret
  • 24-7/8" scale length, for enhanced responsiveness and a soft, slinky handfeel
  • Comfortable Grand Concert body size
  • Tasmanian blackwood back and sides: robust midrange focus with a hint of high-end shimmer
  • Tropical mahogany top evens out the overall tonal response
  • Elegant Venetian cutaway provides upper-register access
  • Vintage-style slotted headstock
  • Taylor ES2 Electronics

Small Body - BIG Sound!

First – Chris Sonia and Scott Bennett at Sweetwater are freaking amazing! 4th guitar (I may be addicted) I have purchased from this company and as always, they seem to go above and beyond EVERY single time! Outstanding service! Now the guitar! A Taylor 322CE 12 fret has to be one of the most beautiful sounding guitars (in this price range) I have ever heard. Sound, comfort, playability and looks! It may be a small body, but do not let this fool you. It has a huge sound, long sustain and is loud. Honestly, I was a Gibson guy and never thought I would own a Taylor yet alone consider a 12 fretter until one day at a local shop. I just happen to pick up a 312ce 12 fret, which is a spruce top and instantly, I loved it. I wanted a warmer sound and decided to go with the tropical mahogany along with the blackwood. Don’t get me wrong, I love the “thump” of a Gibson, but this 322 is now my daily player. Could not be happier!

Very Nice Little Guitar

I like Taylors a great deal; they're American-made, pro-quality instruments. I've had custom handmade boutique guitars, small-shop Chinese guitars, and various factory guitars. Taylors are rock-solid dependable, visually appealing, and if you choose well, they have a balanced, even response that works well for most varieties of acoustic music. I bought this particular guitar because of its size, voice, ease of playing, appearance, and flexibility. Sweetwater gave me a good deal, and I was confident that it was going to arrive in good shape ready to gig with. It's a great little guitar with a large voice, excellent for fingerpicking, accompanying other acoustic instruments, and light strumming.
Music background: Pro, semi-pro.

322CE Update

Star rating unchanged; I did disengage the built in pickup system and installed the LR Baggs M1A, and it works wonderfully, though unlike the build in system, it is visible. I routed the plug in wire through the strap button just like Taylor did. I tried a plan G "10" set for a rock and roll "unplugged" show, and it's fine (plan G bends like your expect for rock and roll (and Ernie Ball set), but they are not very full, and kind of a one trick pony. I went back the Martin Vintage 12's and it sounds better. Still a great player and it just looks cool with the dark top.

Great guitar but...

Acoustically, a great guitar. 12 fret focus on the midrange is there. No, it's not as full as my Martin HD28, ut it's not supposed be. String spacing is a bit wider for finger picking.But...I mostly play with a pick, and the under saddle piezo pickup system amplifies string noise very unpleasantly. And if your pick slides across the strings at all, YIKES, very harsh transients. Pick type doesn't matter: nylon, tortoise (plastic), delrin, whatever. Even finger picking with my sometime calloused fingers, will give me harsh transients, and since I have callouses on my left hand, too, they occur there. I don't have this issue with the LR Baggs M1-A in my Martin, so I may retrofit this Taylor. I've tried using the treble control on the Taylor, and I can tame it a bit at the expense of presence (the Q is way to wide for that). I've tried a Para EQ from Sans Amp and LR Baggs, and can't notch it out. Makes no difference if I play into a PA directly, or into my Fender Acoustasonic 150. So for an otherwise wonderful guitar, the pickup system costs it a "star."
Music background: Played for over 40 years, mostly electric blues and rock.
