Overview

456ce 2014

The cutaway 12-string 456ce showcases solid African ovangkol’s responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. Like all Taylor models, the sleek profile and low action of the neck makes our 12-strings incredibly comfortable to play, with crisp tonal separation. White binding applies a clean counterpoint, while the Expression System delivers high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound.

Features

Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Ovangkol

Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System®

The proprietary, all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup/preamp works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound.

Venetian Cutaway

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.
