Taylor 812ce Grand Concert Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
- A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to custom bracing
- Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage
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. The 812ce acoustic-electric guitar's smaller body and tapered waist not only make it the ultimate studio and stage guitar, but its short scale and lighter string tension also make it a fingerstyle favorite.A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to custom bracing
You'll notice that the Taylor 812ce 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 bracing pattern gives the 812ce a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."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 812ce 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 812ce'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.
