Big-bodied tone in a more compact, playable body design with an eye-pleasing finish.
Part of Taylor's 300 Series Special Edition models, the 322ce SEB features a mahogany-top cutaway Grand Concert body that's perfect for rootsy fingerstyle players in search of a comfortable-size guitar. The short-scale neck makes fretting and bending strings easier, while the mahogany/sapele wood pairing yields a surprisingly dynamic tonal range for a smaller body. A smooth shaded edgeburst adds a tasteful vintage look that complements the dark and rich-grained mahogany top.
Appointments include a black pickguard and binding with crisp white top trim and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar also comes equipped with Expression System 2 electronics for a smooth plug-and-play experience.
The smallest of Taylor' full-size body shapes. Its compact dimensions make for a physically comfortable guitar with an intimate feel and sound. The smaller footprint keeps the overtones in check, contributing to a focused, articulate sound that' well-suited for recording and stage work.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won™t yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
Sapele' tonal output is consistent and balanced across the tonal spectrum, making it compatible with a diverse range of playing styles. It' comparable to mahogany but its higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more top-end shimmer.
Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.

Comments about Taylor 322ce SEB Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
The only downside I experienced is that as soon as I unpacked my 322ce, all my other guitars became jealous.
I mostly play at home in an acoustic setting. I found that due to its size, when played as a straight acoustic, the 322ce has less volume than my Martin 1-Series OMC-1E. That was my initial reaction, but as I have had more time with it, its not something I notice as much. Maybe I adjust a little bit in my playing style?
In any event, having the electric option is kind of necessary if you are a performer anyway, and its in there, so no big deal. The battery in the pickup is designed intelligently so that it only activates when a cable is inserted. That's the problem with guitars with built in tuners, they tend to burn out your 9V. For this reason, I'm glad it doesn't have a built-in tuner. Just throw a Snark in your case.
The 322ce is fun to play, stays in tune and came with a beautiful hardshell case. I know that it has nothing to do with sound, but this instrument is very easy on the eyes. Quite a beauty. It feels like the kind of guitar I'm going to keep forever.
