Price: $3,898 US MSRP / Series: 700
712e 12-Fret

On Taylor’s 12-fret Grand Concert models, the neck meets the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th, and the bridge position is closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is a splash of extra tonal depth. The classic pairing of rosewood and spruce yields a full-range acoustic voice, while the smaller body keeps the overtones in check and fits nicely in a mix with other instruments. A short-scale 24-7/8-inch neck adds comfort to the playing experience. A Vintage Sunburst top and neck, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and grained ivoroid Heritage Diamond fretboard inlays evoke an old-soul persona. Stage-friendly Taylor Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics translate the acoustic dynamics and tonal detail into exceptional amplified tone.
