612ce 12-Fret First Edition
Price: Discontinued / Series: 600
612ce 12-Fret First Edition

Our 12-fret Grand Concerts shift the neck’s position to the body, which drives the top in a way that adds extra midrange punch. Together with the revoiced design details of the 600 Series, players are in for a treat. The smaller body and short-scale neck make for an intimate and comfortable playing experience, while the tonal refinements to the bracing and other materials serve up an inspiring mix of warmth, richness and volume, especially for a small-body guitar. Every material component has been optimized, from the wood and finish thicknesses to the internal bracing — customized for each body shape — to the special roasting process used on the spruce tops to activate a super-responsive, played-in sound. Aesthetic upgrades include a rich, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides, a new fretboard inlay that carries over to include an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony and grained ivoroid trim, and a striped ebony pickguard. A Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup add playing range and performance versatility. Exclusive First Edition features include Adirondack spruce braces that boost the tonal output, a headstock inlay, a First Edition guitar label, and a commemorative First Edition nameplate on the deluxe hardshell case.
