812e (2020)

Epitomizing Taylor’s focus on creating the ultimate playing experience, the 812e blends punchy acoustic tone with a relaxed, intimate feel that will impress players of all styles and skill levels. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides match up with a Sitka spruce top to serve up a lush blend of low-end warmth and top-end chime, all supercharged by the onboard V-Class bracing, which optimizes the soundboard’s vibration to produce more volume and longer sustain that encourages overtones to bloom as notes and chords resonate. To preserve a more traditional aesthetic and feel, we’ve left off the cutaway on this model, but added a radius-style rosewood armrest that updates this guitar’s already-comfortable package with an ergonomic design touch. Aesthetically, this Grand Concert guitar is appointed to catch eyes wherever it goes, with details such as maple binding, rosewood edge trim, an abalone rosette, a rosewood pickguard, smoked nickel tuners and a maple back strip. Taylor’s proprietary Expression System 2 pickup and preamp are on board to deliver faithful plugged-in tone. This model ships with a deluxe hardshell case.
