OVERVIEW

Exotic ovangkol body coupled with industry standard Sitka spruce top for a well-balanced attack.

Taylor’s Grand Orchestra 12-strings are voiced to pump out a powerful sound loaded with lush detail and richly ringing octave shimmer. The ovangkol/spruce 458e leverages ovangkol’s naturally full-range tone profile — similar to that of rosewood with a bit more midrange — to create an expansive, well-balanced 12-string sound. Lively strummers will enjoy exploring the expressive musical personality of this big-bodied acoustic. With Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 electronics, all that double-course detail will translate into a clear amplified voice.


Includes a hardshell case.

Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Ovangkol
An African relative of rosewood, ovangkol shares many of rosewood’s tonal properties, including a wide spectrum from lows and highs. Differences include a slightly fuller midrange and a bright treble response resembling that of koa.

Expression System 2
Taylor’s 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.
