The 712ce 12-Fret blends sophisticated tone with an exceptionally relaxed, compact feel. The rosewood/Lutz combo generates a sparkling tone with strong definition and low-end warmth, plus lots of headroom for dynamic playing styles. The 12-fret-to-neck configuration results in an intimate feel with lower string tension that makes for slinky fretting. That articulation and clarity make this Grand Concert model a great option for fingerstyle players, but thanks to the V-Class bracing inside, it can also pump out enough volume for strummers and flatpickers playing solo or with other instruments. Wood-centric appointments give this guitar an organic visual character, and the built-in ES2 pickup provides faithful plugged-in tone.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
This natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce also shares characteristics with Adirondack spruce, responding with power, richness and volume.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
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.
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.
