The Taylor 312ce 12 Fret LTD NAMM Exclusive Electro Acoustic Guitar in Honey Sunburst is a sublime model for players who want a model that balances power and versatility to perfection. Whether played fingerstyle or with a pick, the 312ce is a glorious model that allows you to sail through performances in style. Each model is supplied with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case to keep your guitar safe at home or on the move.
Comfortable Grand Concert profile
The 312ce is built with the Grand Concert body profile, which is smaller in proportion when compared to a dreadnought. The scaled-down dimensions make it a joy to perform with both in a seated or a standing position, accommodating flatpickers and fingerstyle players perfectly.
The body back and sides are built using Tasmanian blackwood, which offers a rich tonal foundation with a midrange focus and shimmering high-end. Paired with the body is a Lutz spruce top, which produces an impressive output thanks to its ability to project with confidence. The soundboard is reinforced using performance bracing, which is designed to encourage greater output power and louder tones. The 12th fret design shifts the bridge further down the lower bout, which in turn translates to greater tonal depth, increased warmth and a delightfully responsive output.
Unique features for the limited-edition NAMM exclusive 312ce include faux tortoise shell binding, 3-ring faux tortoise shell rosette, and all-satin coating to promote a smooth playing feel.
Sleek neck and fingerboard partnership
Joined to the body at the 12th fret is a sturdy yet highly flowing feel along the neck, which is shaped with a slightly wider profile to accommodate complex chord fretting, as well as elaborate fingerstyle technique and tapping. The Venetian cutaway body profile makes it easy to reach the highest frets in total comfort, with Italian acrylic Gothic Diamond inlays to guide your way. The 12th fret design affords a slinkier feel across the strings, which allows your fingers to fret notes and move around with less effort.
Taylor's proprietary ES2 system
The 312ce electro-acoustic is home to Taylor's Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics, which features a combination of a behind-the-saddle pickup and custom-designed "professional-audio"-grade preamp. Thanks to some ingenious design on Taylor's part, the ES2 system faithfully translates the rich acoustic timbre of the guitar when performing via an amplifier. The intuitive control layout allows you to deftly attenuate the guitar's output to suit any performance environment.
The 312ce LTD NAMM Exclusive is equipped with Taylor slot head tuning machines with ebony buttons, which uphold tuning integrity with precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The bridge provides a flush connection between string and body to maximise resonant transfer to improve sustain. Whether you're chilling out at home, laying down tracks in the studio, or performing on a stadium-stage, this little beauty is built to last and is a dream to play.
