362ce

"The Taylor Guitars Grand Concert 362ce is a new small-body 12-string guitar that’s extremely player-friendly."

-Guitar World, November 2017

Our Grand Concert 12-string guitars have been a revelation to players who’ve otherwise avoided 12-strings due to their traditionally bulkier size. In addition to the compact cutaway body, the 12-fret neck and 24-7/8-inch scale length translate into a physically inviting playing experience with a supremely comfortable handfeel. Sonically, the smaller body produces a more controlled 12-string voice that sits beautifully in a mix for recording applications. With the 362ce, a hardwood mahogany top (paired with blackwood back and sides) lends a bit of natural compression to the response, helping to create a balanced output across the tonal spectrum while still capturing the 12-string’s beautiful octave shimmer. Visually, the shaded edgeburst top and all-satin finish conjure a dusky vintage look. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s ES2 electronics and includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Reviews

The 362ce is browner sounding and has a bit softer response; and while the righteous 12-string majesty is fully present, the 362 compresses more readily than the 352, and you have to pick a bit harder to make lead lines pop. Nevertheless, it sounded very deep and full-bodied in a mix with fiddle...
Taylor Guitars' 362ce has a compact cutaway Grand Concert shape and features solid Tasmanian blackwood back and sides and a mahogony top. The lap friendly Grand Concert is a pleasant departrure from the traditionally beefier size of bigger-bodied 12-strings making it easier for players to set...
The lap-friendly Grand Concert is a pleasant departure from the traditionally beefier size of bigger-bodied 12-strings, making it easier for players to set the strings in motion.
The combination of the 12-fret neck and the 24-7/8-inch scale length also gives players a comfortable hand feel that makes fretting easier.
The spruce-topped 352ce is more responsive and dynamic, especially when played fingerstyle, and the mahogany-topped 362ce offers the slight natural compression that hardwood tops are known for when strumming or playing with a heavier attack.
Not only do the short 24⅞-inch scales result in more manageable finger stretches and lower string tension, the combination of the guitars’ small bodies and 12-fret neck joints makes the instruments incredibly compact, so you won’t expend unnecessary energy just holding the guitar.
