Get Traditional Taylor Feel And Sound With The Taylor 812ce 12-Fret V-Class Acoustic Guitar

If you like a slightly darker, punchier quality in a small guitar, the 812ce 12-Fret is a great choice.

The Grand Concert’s intimate body size and short-scale neck make for a comfortable playing experience that fingerstyle players are bound to love. This 12-fret version of the 812ce yields a slightly different character than the 14-fret because the bridge position is closer to the center of the lower bout and because the bracing profile was modified to emphasize a bolder attack.

Players can expect plenty of the Grand Concert’s signature articulation with a slightly meatier, more robust tonal output. This edition features the V-Class bracing design, which bolsters this small-bodied guitar with added projection and sustain, bringing out more of Indian rosewood’s harmonic complexity.

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Expression System 2

The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.

V-Class Bracing

A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
