The Taylor 612ce 12-Fret Electro Acoustic Guitar in Brown Sugar finish, is a heavenly model that adheres diligently to Taylor's exemplary craftsmanship. Built with the finest tonewoods, equipped with gig- and recording-ready hardware, and completed with the highest quality appointments, the 612ce 12-fret is the stuff of dreams. Once you pick it up, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one of these beauties in your arsenal.
Grand Concert body
The 612ce is shaped to the Grand Concert body profile, which offers a smaller-bodied guitar that is perfect for fingerstyle. Lightweight and compact in shape, it is perfect for those with a shorter playing reach. The 12-fret design harks back to traditional models, with the bridge set slightly further down the lower bout, which enhances the timbre immensely. The playability of the neck is also easier on the fingers thanks to the neck joint placement at the 12th fret rather than the 14th.
The body back and sides are constructed using revoiced maple, which is designed to enhance warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness. The top is built from Sitka spruce (a Taylor favourite), which is reinforced with advanced performance bracing with relief rout. The bracing enables the soundboard to resonate freely to produce an enviable projection. You can rest assured that the subtle nuances of your performance will sing out beautifully.
Fitted to the body via a scarf joint is a supple yet supportive maple neck. The neck has been treated to a satin finish to prevent unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement along the neck. Paired with the neck is a delightful ebony fingerboard, which is adorned with Ivoroid wing inlays to guide your way in style. Ebony binding ensures smooth transitions between each and every fret. The elegantly shaped Venetian cutaway makes it even easier to reach the upper frets.
Expression System 2 Electronics
Taylor's exclusive Expression System 2 pickup is fitted in the 612ce to give you unparalleled amplification. The ES2 pickup features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors that faithfully transmit the natural tones of the 612ce through recording equipment or an amplifier. Taylor have patented this behind-the-saddle design and it is one which captures all the tone on offer from the 612ce.
The gloss body finish protects the aesthetically pleasing brown sugar stain from premature wear, enabling it to age gracefully. Ebony binding encircles the top, whilst an ebony/ivoroid/abalone rosette decorates the soundhole. The ebony bridge features abalone dot bridge pins that complement the striped ebony pickguard. The headstock is fitted with Taylor slot head tuners, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout each and every performance.
Taylor have ensured that you can keep your 612ce 12-Fret electro acoustic guitar well-protected and safely stored by including a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
