Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Handselected

This is a hand selected masterpiece from the makers at Taylor Guitars. Everything about this 12 fret works and works in spades. The tone is clear and piano like with a strong balance. The highs and lows are there with a perfectly and slightly scooped mid. The grain on the spruce is fantastic and beautiful. This is there perfect finger picker with fantastic overtones, punch, and clarity. The grain on the fretboard is gorgeous with the slight stripping and the neck fits like a glove. The rosewood really does a great job on pushing out the lows on this small bodied Taylor as well. If you are looking for a small bodied instrument this is one of the best available and we absolutely love love love playing her.
From Taylor: 812ce 12-Fret

The Grand Concert’s intimate body size and short-scale neck make for a comfortable playing experience that fingerstyle players are bound to love. The 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 year’s edition features our V-Class bracing design, which bolsters this small-bodied guitar with added projection and sustain, bringing out more of Indian rosewood’s harmonic complexity. If you like a slightly darker, punchier quality in a small guitar, the 812ce 12-Fret is a great choice.
