Special Order

Small-bodied Taylor Acoustic-electric with Maple Back and Sides

Get the punch of maple and the focused tone of a small body with the Taylor 612e Grand Concert acoustic-electric guitar. The torrefied Sitka spruce top and Big Leaf maple back and sides deliver a full and articulate sound. The Grand Concert body shape is a favorite among fingerstyle players for its focused voice and balanced tone. You'll love the sound of Taylor's updated Expression System 2 at your plugged-in gigs. Expand your tonal palette with the Grand Concert-sized Taylor 612e acoustic-electric guitar.

Taylor 612e Acoustic-electric 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
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage
A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing

You'll notice that the Taylor 612e 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 612e 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 612e's smaller than average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. That makes the 612e a particularly good fit if you're a finger-stylest or if you have shorter arms.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 612e acoustic-electric guitar. 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 612e'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. Sweetwater knows that your plugged-in tone is important to you, and we're confident that the Taylor 612e has the sound you want.

Taylor 612e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Grand Concert guitar with updated bracing and electronics
  • 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
  • Onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics give you natural sound even when plugged in live
  • Includes hardshell case
If you're looking for an acoustic-electric guitar with extra bite, then the Taylor 612e is just what you need!
