Cedar-topped Mahogany Yields Smooth Tone

The Taylor 512ce Grand Concert 6-string acoustic-electric guitar's cedar-topped tropical mahogany body delivers a smooth, mellow sound that's accented by warm, rich undertones. While its smaller Grand Concert shape is extremely comfortable to play, the 512ce's Advanced bracing yields a surprising amount of projection and volume for such a little guitar. An extremely comfortable ebony fingerboard is adorned with eye-catching grained ivoroid Century inlays. And for stage-ready sound, the Taylor 512ce Grand Concert 6-string acoustic-electric guitar is equipped with Expression System 2 electronics.

Taylor 512ce Grand Concert 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Cedar and mahogany are a singer-songwriter's dream come true
  • Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound
Cedar and mahogany are a singer-songwriter's dream come true

If you want an acoustic guitar that takes a mild touch and provides a smooth and mellow tone, the Taylor 512ce is it! The combination of a slightly dark mahogany body with a lyrically warm cedar top has been a combination of tonewoods favored by singer-songwriters throughout history. But you don't have to be a solo performer to fall in love with the 512ce's tone - its also a great for accompanying another guitarist playing a spruce-topped guitar.

Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance

Arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style, the 512ce's smaller than average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. At Sweetwater, we've found that the 512ce makes a particularly good fit if you're a fingerstylest or if you have shorter arms.

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 the 512ce. 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 the 512ce'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 let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.

Taylor 512ce Grand Concert 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Cedar and tropical mahogany provide a smooth tone with warm undertones
  • Smaller than average Grand Concert cutaway body style is extremely comfortable
  • Performance Bracing yields a rich, vibrant voice
  • Ebony fingerboard provides phenomenal comfort and playability
  • Grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlays creates an eye-catching appearance
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound
  • All-gloss finish offers protection and good looks
The Taylor 512ce Grand Concert 6-string acoustic-electric guitar is a fingerstylist's dream!
