Grab the Updated First Edition 812ce Before It's Gone!

Taylor's 812ce First Edition acoustic-electric guitar celebrates the first run of the new Grand Concert series. The 812ce First Edition features Indian rosewood back and sides, premium-grade Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, and a pearl inlay design. Taylor went back to the drawing board to create custom bracing for each guitar model to give you the most out of your guitar. 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. The Taylor 812ce First Edition Grand Concert has a robust output, dynamic range, and sensitive response for all types of players.

Taylor 812ce Grand Concert First Edition 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
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. The 812ce First Edition 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 First Edition 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 First Edition 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 First Edition 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 First Edition'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 812ce First Edition has the sound you want.
