700 Series 12-fret Grand Concert

Taylor's 712e 12-fret acoustic-electric guitar combines specifically voiced tonewoods and one of Taylor's most comfortable body styles to give you an instrument that's perfect for a wide range of playing techniques and musical styles. With a 712e, you get the bright and airy sound of a Lutz spruce top accompanied by the powerful and clear voice of Indian rosewood back and sides. You'll be able to translate that woody tone live through the guitar's Expression System 2 electronics. And the Grand Concert body and 12-fret neck make the Taylor's 712e one of their most comfortable guitars.

Taylor 712e 12-fret Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A powerful tonewood combination
  • Comfortable Grand Concert body
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
A powerful tonewood combination

Nothing beats the sound of rosewood topped with spruce like you'll find on the Taylor 712e Grand Concert. The Lutz spruce used for the top is a natural hybrid of Engelmann and Sitka. Lutz has a similar tone with more high-end clarity, which gives you wonderful projection and the perfect amount of sparkle. And construction appointments such as the 712e's Indian rosewood back and sides and revoiced performance bracing ensure you'll fall in love with your guitar's voice.

Comfortable Grand Concert body

Taylor's Grand Concert body design is well suited for fingerstyle players who want a focused tone that brings out the best in their technique. The guitar's neck attaches to the body at the 12th fret for a vintage feel and look. And fretting is extremely comfortable due to the 24.87" scale length's narrower fret spacing. The controlled, rich tones and effortless playability of your 712e 12-fret Grand Concert acoustic-electric guitar need to be experienced to be believed.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the natural-sounding Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics onboard the 712e. This system features a 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar's saddle for clear and accurate sound reproduction. Contoured master volume and tone controls let you tweak your sound and output from the stage and are very low profile, never interfering with your performance. And a phase switch helps you squelch feedback before it starts.

Taylor 712e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Small-bodied acoustic with a clear and bold tone
  • 12-fret neck attachment for a vintage tone and feel
  • Grand Concert body style is pronounced sounding and extremely comfortable
