Special-edition 412e with Indian Rosewood

The Taylor 412e-R acoustic-electric pairs Taylor's signature Grand Concert sparkle with back and sides made from Indian rosewood. This results in enhanced warmth, depth, and clarity. The Taylor 412e-R's comfortable, compact body exhibits excellent note definition, and its all-over gloss finish optimizes the guitar's tonal qualities and protects against damage. If you're looking for a tonally balanced acoustic guitar that fits well with other instruments, do yourself a favor and check out the Taylor 412e-R Grand Concert. Includes Taylor ES2 electronics for natural tone and dynamics in a stage-friendly direct out.

Taylor 412e-R Grand Concert Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood provide a well-rounded tone
  • Comfortable Grand Concert body style
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage
  • Breathable gloss finish
Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood provide a well-rounded tone

This Limited Taylor 412e-R acoustic-electric is a prime example of the quality tonewoods Bob Taylor and his team select for their instruments. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you projection with just the right amount of sparkle. And the Indian rosewood back and sides exude a vibrant quality that responds well to how hard you drive the strings. You'll find that this tonewood combination is a good choice for aggressive flatpickers and strummers who are looking for a well-rounded, all-purpose acoustic guitar.

Comfortable Grand Concert body style

The 412e-R acoustic guitar's smaller-than-average Grand Concert shape is arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style. It's the perfect fit for anyone looking for an instrument they can play for hours on end. The smaller dimensions and tighter waist cut down on excess overtones and enhance fundamentals. These tonal qualities make the Limited 412e-R a good choice if you play in a band or ensemble.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the natural-sounding Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics onboard the 412e-R. This system features a three-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar's saddle for clear and accurate sound reproduction. Discreet contoured master volume and tone controls let you tweak your sound and output from the stage, and a phase switch helps you squelch feedback before it starts.

Breathable gloss finish

The Taylor 412e-R's lustrous gloss finish provides a great blend of protection and tone. At about the thickness of a piece of paper, this finish allows the top, back, and sides of the guitar to move freely for the best possible tone. This allows the wood to breathe and, Sweetwater agrees, appears to have no negative impact on the tone. Thanks to this special finish, the Taylor 412e-R looks and sounds great from day one and is built to last a lifetime.

Taylor 412e-R Grand Concert Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Grand Concert body with tapered waist is full sounding and comfortable
  • Sitka spruce top is bright and bold, with impressive projection
  • Indian rosewood back and sides exhibit enhanced warmth, depth, and clarity
  • Short-scale tropical mahogany neck (24-7/8") is comfortable for smaller hands
