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 812e-N a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
Arguably Taylor's most comfortable body style, the 812e-N's smaller than average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. That makes the Taylor 812e-N a particularly good choice if you're a finger-stylest or if you have shorter arms. It features a beautiful Sitka spruce top, which gives you wonderful projection and the perfect amount of sparkle. Add to that the balanced tone and astonishing projection of the 812e-N's Indian rosewood back and sides, and you have a guitar with timeless tone.Exceptional tone, volume, and balance thanks to custom-tailored wood thickness
One of the things we like best about Taylor at Sweetwater is that their various body styles are designed for specific purposes, allowing you to choose a guitar that's the perfect match for your style. With the 812e-N, Taylor takes that to another level by carefully matching the thickness of the spruce top and rosewood back and sides to the body style. They determined what the optimum wood thickness for the 812e-N's Grand Concert body would be, to give you maximum tone and light weight while also being equally strong. Taylor is also using real animal protein glue (fish, in fact) instead of synthetic glue. Luthiers have been using protein glues for centuries for their incredible strength, and also for their tone. Protein glue optimizes transfer of vibrations and also holds amazingly well, which means you're sure to get a lifetime of fantastic tone from the Taylor 812e-N acoustic-electric guitar.Premium plugged-in tone with Taylor's ES-N electronics
