712e 12 Fret-FLTD

Price: Discontinued / Series: 2014 Fall Limiteds
712e 12 Fret-FLTD

This limited edition 12-Fret model matches our short-scale Grand Concert body with visually stunning blackheart sassafras back and sides and a Sitka spruce top. The sassafras imparts a blend of low-end warmth, mahogany’s woodiness, and rosewood’s top-end sparkle, yielding a voice with impressive overall focus and projection. In addition to the 12-fret design, the guitar also features our Advanced Performance bracing, borrowed from our 800 Series. As a result of both, players can expect a slightly bolder, meatier quality to the sound, which can handle fingerstyle, picking and strumming with ease. Elegant aesthetic touches include rosewood binding, rosewood top edge trim, an abalone rosette outlined in rosewood, mother-of-pearl Heritage Diamond fretboard inlays, and a pickguard-free top. The guitar includes our Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
