Overview

512ce 12-Fret LTD

Hawaiian koa and Western red cedar is a delightful tonewood combination that we haven’t utilized in years, so getting to pair them up in this limited edition Grand Concert was an exciting opportunity. Cedar’s soft-touch response and low-end warmth makes it an ideal counterbalance as a guitar top with back and sides of koa, since the Hawaiian tonewood tends to be brighter and more articulate. The 12-fret configuration makes a difference here, since the shifted bridge position opens up greater depth and presence in the midrange, while also giving the guitar a slinky, relaxed fretting feel. Details for this model include faux tortoiseshell body binding and West African ebony fretboard binding, along with Century inlays in grained ivoroid and a shaded edgeburst finish treatment that gives the entire guitar a dark, alluring sheen. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

Features

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Hawaiian Koa

Few woods carry the allure of Hawaiian koa, with its gorgeous figure and sweet, complex tone.

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.

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.
