Great Sound and Killer Playability!

Taylor's Spring 2014 Limited Edition 456ce-SLTD 12-string acoustic-electric guitar gives you a wonderful blend of classic tonewoods and modern electronics. With a 456ce-SLTD, you get a gorgeous solid Sitka spruce top complemented by ovangkol back and sides. You'll love the way this 12-string guitar sounds unplugged, but it also comes loaded with Taylor's updated Expression System 2 electronics, so it also sounds fantastic when you plug in onstage. And thanks to its Grand Symphony body style, the 456ce-SLTD provides you with both an excellent tonal balance and powerful projection. If you're looking for a 12-string acoustic guitar that's ready for any playing style or venue, the Taylor Spring 2014 Limited Edition 456ce-SLTD is a great choice!

Taylor 456ce-SLTD Spring 2014 Limited Edition Acoustic-electric 12-string Guitar at a Glance:
  • Elegant tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets ovangkol
  • Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection
  • Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Elegant tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets ovangkol

When you pick up a Taylor, you can expect outstanding tone - and one of the leading reasons behind that signature Taylor voice is the use of high-quality tonewoods. This particular Taylor, the 12-string 456ce-SLTD, is a prime example of just that. It features the quick, articulate response of Sitka spruce, combined with the warmth and sparkle of ovangkol, giving the 400 Series a tone reminiscent of a rosewood instrument, yet uniquely its own. The Taylor 456ce-SLTD also features a Tropical American mahogany neck, which is lined with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 12-string 456ce-SLTD, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the 456ce-SLTD a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style. Forward shifted bracing lets the Taylor 456ce-SLTD's top vibrate more giving you an enhanced tone. This bracing technique also uses Taylor's patented relief rout that increases your guitar's volume and bass while keeping a balanced tone.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.
