OVERVIEW

Supreme comfort with the warmth of sapele and peerless craftsmanship.

The Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is easy to hold and always fun to play. This small-bodied beauty features elegant black fiber binding, a gloss top, Venetian cutaway, and the Taylor Expression System for unparalleled amplified performance. The warm tone and open midrange of the guitar's sapele back and sides balances the bright and snappy characteristics of a solid Sitka spruce top. Rupert Neve-designed Expression System electronics with Dynamic Sensors and tone controls capture top and string vibration like never before. The finish used to create the 312-CE acoustic-electric's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. The ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

FEATURES
  • Solid Sitka spruce top
  • Sapele back and sides
  • Ebony fretboard and bridge
  • Tropical American mahogany neck
  • Expression System electronics
  • Chrome hardware
  • 25-1/2" scale

The perfect guitar for strong, rhythmic playing styles. Make it your one and only today.

312-ce

By cody myers

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Overall, the guitar is amazing. anyone not wanting to spend a fortune on a great guitar, should definitely check this out. I promise you wont be disappointed.
Went into altomusic today, was deciding between a Taylor or a Martin. Martin's Dcpa4 vs Taylor's 312ce.The Taylor blew the Martin away effortlessly. It was much smoother than the Martin, there isn't as much bass, but it's so clear.I didn't want to put it down, i talked about it for at least 3 hours after i left the storeIt's not the most flashy guitar, but its beautiful in it's own way. it was a hundred times better than i expected it to be.definitely getting this for myself for christmas.
Play it for yourself and see how great it is/feels
I played a couple higher priced guitars, and in my opinion, there was little to no difference at all. except for the lack of bass in the taylor.

Awesome, Just Not as Awesome as the 310ce & 314ce

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The Taylor 312ce Grand Concert is an excellent guitar. It has a crisp, clear sound and feels nice and light in your hands. The body is simply gorgeous. Each curve is precisely constructed and shows an extreme attention to detail. The neck is also something to marvel at. It feels so comfortable changing notes and allows you to slide up and down the guitar with wonderful ease. The guitar also comes with the Taylor Expression System, which produces a full, dreamy sound when playing through an amp.The 312ce does have a few drawbacks, however. This is a small body guitar through and through. The depth and length of the body are thinner and shorter than most acoustic guitars, so it might take a little getting used to. Yet it still manages an impressive sound. The neck is also slightly shorter than most acoustics (24 7/8 inches versus 25 1/2 inches). The shorter distance makes the strings feel tighter and slightly less bendable.Before you commit to purchasing this guitar I would take a very close look at the Taylor 310ce and 314ce. Both are in the same price range as the 312ce and both have more of a smooth punch to their unplugged sound. Both have slightly bigger bodies and, as such, produce more bass and volume. With that said, if you plan to do the majority of your playing through an amp then you won't hear a difference. Even with the few drawbacks, this is still an exceptional instrument.

314-ce is outstanding

By TonyF-U7hhA

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have owned many guitars. This is by far the best overall guitar I have ever owned. The sound is incredible both acoustic and amplified. The action is second to none! The sound in relation to the size is very impressive. Anyone looking a reasonably priced upper end guitar will be very pleased with this guitar.

Perfect size with perjection

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The 312CE is the perfect guitar if you don't need the full size of a drednaught. The scalloped braces create an awesome sound. The ES audio system is like using a microphone without the hassel. The neck is just different and I can't tell you why.

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Awesome guitar all around! Great tone! For those of you who have problems with too much bass or feedback problems from the bass tone, I suggest cutting off the frequencies below 50-60hz. I plug this directly into the PA and use a low cut-off and it sounds great. I have a 312 with a Fishman Prefix pick-up. The Prefix-plus is also a nice pick-up and worth the extra money. All around a great guitar!

Coolness

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The description of this guitar completely underrates it. This is an amazing guitar that people only get one of in their life because it defines exactly what anyone would want in a guitar. The fact that it has the expression system is enough to convince any acoustic-electric player that this is a superior instrument. Electric this sounds much better than anything that is currently on the market. Acoustically it is outstanding. The smaller body really gives the trebles and midrange a voice that any other body style can't, but on the same note you don't get bass that is below par in exchange. The grand concert is definitely better, in my opinion, than the dreadnought, grand auditorium, or the jumbo similar to it. The guitar is very light as well but not too light to where it feels cheap or incomplete. This guitar is a beautiful looking and sounding piece of art that speaks for itself and lives up to any expectation once it is heard. You really can't go wrong with such a model.

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've had mine for a year and a half now. I love it! I checked out a lot of other acoustics, but when I picked this one up it felt great and sounded great. I knew this was the one for me.I did have a problem with the expression system after about eight months, but I took it back to the shop I bought if from and they replaced the entire system under warranty in only a week. It's good to know that Taylor stands behind their stuff.

A Guitar You Will Never Sell...

By Sammy J

from Miamisburg, OH

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar because I had recently purchased the Taylor NS62-CE and was blown away. So I decided to get a steel string. Well after around 50 different 6 string guitars in the last 4 years this is one guitar I WILL NEVER SELL! I have owned an played up to $4,000.00 guitars and I ain't ever played a guitar that feels, sounds and plays so well. Unplugged it rings out every note with complete detail. Plug it in and you will melt into this guitar and become one. Play it and you will know that I am underestimating this blessed axe.

A wonderful instrument.

Comments about Taylor 312-CE Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. The only problem I've had is that you get a lot of feedback when you have it amplified, unless you use a FeedBack Buster. Other than that, this guitar is great. It gets a beautiful tone, and plays very smoothly. It comes with Elixer Nanoweb strings, which I use anyway, and they last two to three times longer then any other strings I've played. Overall, this guitar is awesome.
