This non-cutaway take on our 800 Series Grand Concert offers an alternative playing experience for those seeking the traditional full-body aesthetic. Made with all-solid Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, the 812e boasts a harmonically textured, overtone-rich sound with a warm low-end response and clear, chime-like trebles. The compact body shape provides tonal definition that will please fingerstyle players, while the V-Class bracing inside dials up more volume and sustain. With a rosewood radius-style armrest for an even smoother feel, this model sports Element inlays in mother-of-pearl, along with a smoky ebony fretboard and weathered rosewood pickguard, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
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.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
