The Taylor 812ce 12 Fret LTD NAMM Exclusive Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a compact masterpiece that is perfect for hitting the road or the studio with. The comfortability of this model can't be overstated, and you're afforded the pure unadulterated joy of kicking back and playing. Each model includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case to keep your model in pristine condition wherever your music takes you.
Sleek Grand Concert body
The 812ce is shaped to the Grand Concert body profile with scaled-down dimensions and a tapered waist that makes it a fantastic model for acoustic fingerstyle guitarists. Whether played in a seated or standing position, the Grand Concert sits snugly against the body to maximise playing comfort.
The body back and sides are crafted using Indian rosewood, a classic tonewood that generates a hearty low-end energy with crisp highs. Paired with the rosewood is a redwood top, which produces exceptionally warm tones for a delightfully complex character. The subtle nuances of your performance are captured with impressive clarity. Reinforced using performance bracing with hide glue and top braces, the soundboard resonates freely whilst maintaining a sturdy hold. The 12-fret design realigns the position of the bridge by putting it closer to the lower bout, which changes the way in which the soundboard moves to produce a striking amount of power, warmth, and sustain considering the size of the guitar.
Unique features for the limited-edition NAMM exclusive 812ce include pale, non-figured maple binding, rosewood top edge trim, single ring abalone rosette edged with rosewood, and abalone-dot bridge pins.
Comfortable neck and fingerboard
Joined to the body is a sturdy yet highly responsive neck, which is shaped with a slightly wider profile to accommodate complex chord fretting, as well as elaborate fingerstyle technique and tapping. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous smoky ebony fingerboard, which is home to 18 frets that are adorned with mother-of-pearl Element position inlays. Thanks to the Venetian cutaway, each and every fret is within easy reach to encourage dynamic performances.
Taylor's proprietary ES2 system
The 812ce 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 812ce LTD NAMM Exclusive is equipped with Taylor slot head tuning machines, 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. The result is a truly remarkable model that can keep up with the most enthusiastic of guitarists.
