Solid woods, compact dimensions and a comfortable 12-fret- neck-to-body configuration make this Grand Concert acoustic-electric an alluring choice for virtually any type of player. Urban Ironbark paired with torrefied Sitka spruce add up to an enticing mix of power, top-end clarity, played-in warmth and remarkable balance, with our V-Class bracing architecture inside to coax out louder volume and longer sustain. The 12-fret setup helps enhance this model's playability, bringing your hands closer together for a more intimate, accommodating feel and a dash of extra midrange punch. With its subtle appointment package and rich red hues, the 512ce 12-Fret also boasts a classic yet updated aesthetic that looks beautiful in any scenario.


Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Urban Ironbark

This tonewood from our urban wood initiative yields power, fidelity and depth for a supremely balanced, muscular sound.

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.

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.

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
