The solid ovangkol/spruce 412ce features Taylor’s compact Grand Concert body shape, a short-scale neck, and a Venetian cutaway for an ultra-playable fretting experience. Ovangkol shares rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range, with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright, focused top end. The smaller body will curb the overtones and fit well in a mix with other instruments. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup delivers clear, natural sounding amplified tone for gigging or recording. Aesthetic details include white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a three-ring rosette, and a full-gloss body. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
