712e 12-Fret

Crafted without a cutaway to preserve a classic look, the 712e 12-Fret boasts a compact setup that brings the player's hands closer together for a more comfortable, relaxed feel that will especially appeal to fingerstyle players. Indian rosewood and Lutz spruce team up for a springy, articulate tone with rich low-end resonance and shimmering trebles. V-Class bracing increases power and sustain while making for a more in-tune sound down the neck, and the shifted bridge position of the 12-fret configuration adds a touch more midrange presence. Wood-focused appointments, ES2 electronics and a deluxe hardshell case complete the package.


Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Lutz Spruce

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.

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.
