Taylor describes their 512ce 12-Fret as a "fingerstyle dream", and we absolutely agree. The western red cedar soundboard and mahogany back and sides ensure a tone that is warm yet focused - perfect for complex, nuanced fingerpicked arrangements - while the 12-fret construction gives this guitar a boost in power and volume. The smaller Grand Concert body sizing and the shorter 24 7/8" scale length ensure a comfortable playing experience. All in all, this guitar is a musical package that will have you happily picking through your whole repertoire. And with the built-in Expression System 2 electronics, you can take to the stage with ease. Priced with hard case from Taylor!
