OVERVIEW

A compact and beautiful nylon-string that combines Sitka spruce, Hawaiian koa and Taylor Expression System electronics.

The Taylor 2012 312ce-N-LTD Spring Limited Edition Koa Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Nylon Guitar is available in limited numbers and is a member of the Hawaiian Koa 300 Series for 2012.

Hawaiian koa occupies rare air among tonewoods, and for good reason: Its tone is crisp and complex, its figure can be variegated and striking, and it is among the more difficult woods to procure. Though its normally reserved for the upper end of the Taylor line, years of buying whole koa logs can sometimes yield sets of wood that have all the tonal character and charm of premium koa but arent quite as figured as the most prized sets reserved for the Koa Series. Thats where the 300 Series Koa Limiteds come in, offering a special treat and a great value.

Grand Concert (GC)
Body Length: 19 1/2" / Body Width: 15" / Body Depth: 4 3/8"
A smaller bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

The small-body Grand Concert debuted in 1984 to meet the needs of a new wave of adventurous acoustic fingerstyle players. In contrast to the traditionally darker, boomier voices of bigger body styles like dreadnoughts and jumbos, the GCs compact size and tapered waist kept the overtones in check. It was also more comfortable to play while sitting down, and the guitars slightly wider neck gave players more room for complex fingerings. The GCs smaller sonic footprint also fit cleanly in a mix with other instruments when tracking in the studio and with a band on stage, making it a useful tool for professional session and side players. Taylor's current generation of GC models continues to accommodate fingerstylists with finger-friendly traits like a shorter 24 7/8-inch scale length, which makes fretting easier and adds a slightly slinkier feel on the strings due to the lighter string tension. If you feel more comfortable with a small body or favor controlled overtones, a Grand Concert is a great option.

ES-N
Like the the ES-T, The ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer, but the preamp design and tone controls were customized to complement the nylon-string voice. Our standard ES control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic. Installed on nylon-string models.
