Full balanced tone swells from this 12-fret guitar, with Taylor's dynamite craftsmanship, and beautiful appointments to satisfy the most discerning guitarist.
The 12-Fret acoustic electric guitar is a Taylor sound like no other. As a result of joining the neck to the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th and moving the bridge farther back on the soundboard, the guitar's tone sounds wonderfully aged right out of the case. The "modern vintage" voice blends warmth and depth on the low end with crisp, snappy treble and surprising overall volume. If you've been craving something new to stimulate your creative juices, you'll want to take the Taylor 12-Fret guitar for a spin.
Grand Concert body
This guitar shape defines intimacy in both its size and its sound. The Grand Concert acoustic electric guitar is dynamically responsive to a lighter touch and is well-suited for fingerpicking. With clarity and balance, it's also perfect for mic'ing and home recording.
Indian rosewood back and sides; Sitka spruce top
Indian rosewood seems as if it were created to be on a guitar. The clarity, balance, sustain, and bass response is excellent, while the Taylor 12-Fret guitar's wonderful coloration design presents a rare instrument with masterful appointments and construction. Paired with Sitka spruce, it's an unstoppable combination.
Using proprietary pickup technology from Taylor, the Expression system amplifies your 12-Fret guitar with an unrivaled, natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, emotionally clean amplified sound.
Gloss top, back, and sides
The finish used to create this Taylor guitar's lustrous glosss top, back, and sides was developed for maximum durability, and resistance to cold-checking. This 12-Fret guitar's ultra-violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
Taylor's Specialty models
Taylor's Specialty guitars stand out for having distinctive design properties that translate into a unique playing experience. The Specialty category was inspired by several models that were developed to commemorate Taylor's 35th anniversary. Each delivered a fresh acoustic voice that was unlike any other guitar in Taylor's production lineup. The more the 12-Fret acoustic electric guitar and other models are played, the more they deserved a place in the Taylor line. Each Specialty acoustic electric guitar embodies the best of Taylor innovation and promises to inspire guitar players in a whole new way.

I first saw and heard this guitar at the Taylor Road Show in Knoxville at Pick 'N Grin. As they demonstrated the sounds from the different sizes and body styles, when he played the 12 fret all heads turned. Towards the end I got my hands on it and it blew me away. I might be biased because I'm not a big strummer, I'm more of a "fill in the sound" with a little bit of lead thrown in kind of player and this smaller body feels and sounds perfect for that. The most impressive thing to me were how the fingerpicked notes jumped off the body and fingers. It's unique enough to stand out with the classical headstock, but still familiar enough to know it's Taylor. It might not be for everyone, but pick it up and try it out. It may turn into your favorite guitar.
