Taylor 12 String Acoustic Guitars
For a student or a 6 string player looking for an introduction to the 12 string world, the Taylor 150e is a solid, accessible choice. This instrument features a familiar dreadnought shape for a powerful tone and ease of articulation. The layered sapele wood construction delivers exceptional tone and ensures durability, making this a great instrument for transporting to and from classes. The onboard Expression System® even delivers naturally warm amplified sound for live playing.
A more serious instrument for an intermediate player, the Taylor 456ce is a gorgeous, versatile guitar. The grand symphony shape offers larger dimensions for more fullness, volume and sustain, while the Ovangkol body shares many tonal properties of Rosewood, but with a fuller midrange. Meanwhile, the advanced Expression System 2 boasts a piezo pickup to capture and amplify a more dynamic range of tones.
If, however, you're a seasoned professional searching for a truly special instrument, the Taylor 956ce is a stunning performance guitar you won't want to miss. This model shares the advanced Expression System 2 but boasts a real Indian Rosewood body, a popular, traditional choice, for bright treble, a strong midrange and full low-end tones. Additionally, the red purfling accents and abalone top trim add beauty and elegance to its appearance.
The 12 string guitar is a whole new frontier for many guitarists, and its doubled tones vibrating slightly out of phase produce a full, distinctive sound that's unlike anything the 6 string is capable of. Once you hear it, you're sure to join the likes of Dave Matthews in a newfound love for the Taylor 12 string acoustic guitar sound.
