458e-R

Taylor’s Grand Orchestra 12-strings are voiced to pump out a potent wall-of-sound voice loaded with lush detail and richly ringing octave shimmer. The rosewood/spruce 458e leverages rosewood’s naturally full-range tone profile — from bellowing lows to brightly glimmering highs — to create an expansive, well-balanced 12-string sound. Lively strummers will enjoy exploring the expressive musical personality of this big-bodied acoustic. With Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 electronics, all that double-course detail will translate into a clear amplified voice.
