Taylor's new 512ce combines Urban Ironbark back & sides with a torrefied Sitka Spruce top, producing a voice that's powerful and balanced across all frequency ranges. As Grand Concert-sized guitars go, the 512ce displays impressive volume and a crisp, woody tone that stands up equally well to fingerpicking and flatpicking. Beautiful appointments and Taylor's ES2 electronics make this a perfect stage guitar for anyone interested in a small-bodied gigging guitar that won't sacrifice tone for looks. Priced with hardshell case.
From Taylor: The 512ce is one of our first models to feature back and sides of solid Urban Ironbark, a dense, hard tonewood that yields a rich, sophisticated response with a deep low end and high-fidelity voice reminiscent of Indian rosewood, along with some of mahogany's midrange punch and focus. The Grand Concert 512ce pairs Urban Ironbark with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, lending a played-in character that makes for a warm, piano-like sound with remarkable balance across the tonal spectrum. With V-Class bracing inside, this compact acoustic-electric serves up room-filling projection and blooming sustain, offering a muscular quality that remains sensitive to a soft touch. Appointments include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, a single-ring abalone rosette trimmed with maple and black purfling, and a tastefully subtle edgeburst.
