Small-bodied Taylor with Maple Back and Sides

Get the punch of maple and the focused tone of a small body with the Taylor 612 Grand Concert acoustic guitar. The torrefied Sitka spruce top and Big Leaf maple back and sides deliver a full and articulate sound. A hand-rubbed stain on the back and the sides gives this guitar a unique look among maple-backed guitars. The Grand Concert body shape is a favorite among fingerstyle players for its focused voice and balanced tone. Expand your tonal palette with the Grand Concert-sized Taylor 612 acoustic guitar.

Taylor 612 Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing
  • Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
  • Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Big Leaf maple
A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing

You'll notice that the Taylor 612 boasts exceptionally vibrant tones with a unique character. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns, to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. In the words of luthier Andy Powers, the updated Advanced Performance bracing pattern gives the updated 612 a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."

Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance

Taylor's Grand Concert body style gives you clarity, focus, and balanced tone that sits beautifully in thicker arrangements where a larger-bodied acoustic would take up too much real estate. Arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style, the 612's smaller than average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. That makes the 612 a particularly good fit if you're a finger-stylest or if you have shorter arms.

Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Big Leaf maple

The 612 is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features torrefied Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle, and the 612's Big Leaf maple back and sides give it an extra bright and snappy tone. At Sweetwater we love expressive and toneful acoustic guitars, and the Taylor 612 acoustic definitely fits that bill.

Taylor 612 Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Grand Concert guitar with updated bracing
  • Smaller than average Grand Concert body style is extremely comfortable and naturally loud
  • Torrefied Sitka spruce top provides a light and expressive sound
  • Maple back and sides add chiming brightness to your sound
  • Includes hardshell case
If you're looking for an acoustic guitar with extra bite, then the Taylor 612 is just what you need!
