Celebrate 50 years of Taylor with this limited-edition 12-string packing vintage looks and modern innovations for exceptional tone.

Celebrate five decades of Taylor's innovative craftsmanship with the limited-edition 50th Anniversary 858e. This 12-string Grand Orchestra acoustic-electric guitar pairs the responsiveness of solid koa back and sides with the projection of Sitka spruce for a shimmering tone that rings out with clarity. Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing and proprietary pickup system ensure this guitar delivers the same full, balanced sound plugged in as it does when playing unplugged.

Premium Koa Wood Construction

The 50th Anniversary 858e exudes sophistication with its solid koa body, offering aesthetic beauty matched by resonant tone. Koa's dense grain produces rich overtones and a wide range of tonal colors. When paired with Sitka spruce, the result is a sound with tight lows, sweet mids and articulate highs that shine through on every strum. The slim mahogany neck offers a fast, comfortable playing experience so you can express yourself fully.

Revolutionary V-Class Bracing

At the heart of the 50th Anniversary 858e is Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing. This patented architecture liberates the soundboard to vibrate more freely, enhancing volume, sustain, pitch accuracy and touch sensitivity. On a 12-string guitar, V-Class bracing helps each course ring clearly while preventing muddiness. The end result is a perfectly balanced "wall of sound" with shimmering highs and a robust low end.

Cutting-Edge Pickup System

Taylor's ES2 electronics capture this 12-string's dynamic acoustic properties with stunning realism. Featuring three uniquely positioned sensors, ES2's behind-the-saddle pickup enables a wide range of tones when plugged in. On stage or in the studio, ES2 translates every nuance of your playing for an experience as rewarding as playing unplugged. EQ controls provide additional tonal shaping to suit any musical situation.

Limited-Edition Touches

As part of Taylor's 50th Anniversary celebration, the 858e receives several special appointments. These include gold frets, an abalone rosette and mother-of-pearl "Progressive Diamond" fingerboard inlays. A beautiful floral case and commemorative guitar label complete this limited run. If you seek a premium 12-string guitar to inspire creativity for years to come, this 50th Anniversary 858e delivers Taylor's signature blend of beauty, playability and tone.
