Get Astounding Taylor Sounds With The Taylor 812CE 14-Fret V Class Deluxe Acoustic Guitar

This cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert blends incredible playing comfort-the result of the compact 12-fret design, slinky handfeel, and an ergonomic radius armrest-with a tonal response that's impressively bold, warm and punchy for its intimate body size. The neck's 24-7/8-inch scale length heightens the physical playing comfort, while the different positioning of the bridge on the soundboard-closer to the center of the lower bout compared to a 14-fret model-helps generate a meatier, more robust response. That boldness is enhanced on this Deluxe model by newly added V-Class bracing, which provides a boost to this guitar's projection and sustain and generates surprising power from a small frame. Its blend of physical comfort, responsiveness to a light touch, and complex tonal output make this a remarkably expressive guitar. Refined appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim with a matching rosewood armrest veneer, a rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Taylor's ES2 acoustic electronics.



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.
