With its accommodating Grand Concert body, solid tonewoods and V-Class bracing, the 312ce 12-Fret offers pro-level performance regardless of your ability. Sapele and spruce team up for a rich tone profile characterized by woody lows, pristine highs and a meaty midrange. The 12-fret configuration makes this model even more appealing, with a slightly more relaxed feel for your fretting hand than you'll find with standard models. With V-Class bracing for extra power and sustain, a built-in ES2 pickup and a hardshell case, the 312ce 12-Fret strikes a balance between functionality, comfort and value.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, sapele will deliver for any playing style.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.
