456ce 2014
Price: Discontinued / Series: 400
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.
