512ce 12-Fret

This fingerstyle dream blends the warm and responsive voice of mahogany topped with cedar, the physical comfort of our compact Grand Concert body, and the slinky handfeel of the 12-fret 24-7/8-inch scale length neck to offer players an effortlessly expressive 6-string. The location of the bridge near the center of the lower bout elicits extra warmth, power and sweetness, especially with Taylor’s Performance bracing under the hood. Visually, the slotted headstock, grained ivoroid Century inlays, and faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard outfit the guitar with neo-vintage aesthetic appeal, while modern features include an elegant Venetian cutaway and proprietary Taylor Expression System® 2 electronics.

FEATURES

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Western Red Cedar

A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.

Expression System® 2

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

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.
