Overview

458e-R (2018)

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.

Features

Grand Orchestra

Taylor's biggest body shape blends power, detail and balance across the tonal spectrum.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

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® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
