If you're new to Taylor's 400 series, then you're in for a treat. Your Taylor 412ce Grand Concert cutaway acoustic-electric follows in an impressive line of acoustic-electric guitars that bring pristine tone and unparalleled playability to the table with every strum. This comfortable small-bodied axe features a surprisingly big-sounding Grand Concert body shape with a Venetian cutaway, a Sitka spruce top, ovangkol back and sides, a tropical mahogany neck, a smooth-as-glass ebony fingerboard, 20 frets with tight and comfortable action, a slick white fiber binding, Taylor's sonically appealing Expression System electronics, and a secure and stable ebony bridge. Get into the acoustic-electric groove with this beautifully electrifying axe.

Grand Concert Body Shape

Your Taylor 412ce is cut into an compact Grand Concert shape that rests comfortably against your body. Each strum is resonated and projected in clear and powerful fashion, whether you're amped or going unplugged. Your 412ce's body also features a Venetian cutaway that allows you easier access to your higher frets for those more poignant leads.

Solid Sitka Spruce and Ovangkol Tonewood Pairing

Your Taylor 412ce's solid ovangkol body is topped with Sitka spruce. Spruce does a good job of adding a pleasant mellowness with a slower response to your playing, and it also gives your guitar a nice aesthetic look with its appealing and distinctive grain patterns. Ovangkol emphasizes the mids and lows of your playing in a slightly less dark fashion than mahogany. Together, these woods project a warm full-bodied tone with every note.

Tropical Mahogany Neck and Ebony Fingerboard

A sturdy tropical mahogany neck fits comfortably around your hand as your fingers glide across its smooth ebony fingerboard of 20 frets. A tight action and ultimate playability are always at your fingertips every time you wrap your hand around this wonderfully crafted appendage. Mahogany offers your notes a pleasant lasting sustain and adds a slight dark color to each note. Ebony also wears well and stands up strongly to divots and nicks.

Taylor Expression System Electronics

The crowning jewel on your Taylor 412ce is Taylor's Expression System electronics. Designed with the help of the renowned Rubert Neve, this system uses Taylor's patented Dynamic Sensors to soak in the warm full-bodied tone resonated by your 412ce's Grand Concert ovangkol and sitka spruce body. You haven't heard how pristine an acoustic-electric can sound until you've shouldered this beauty and plugged it in for the first time.

Product Description

A smaller body highlighted by a Venetian cutaway and the Expression System, this Grand Concert shines as either a fingerstyle guitar or a light strummer. The quick, articulate response of Sitka Spruce is combined with the warmth and sparkle of Ovangkol, giving the 400 Series a tone reminiscent of Rosewood, yet uniquely its own.

Grand Concert

The Grand Concert is the quintessential small-bodied guitar. Its comfortable shape delivers clarity and a balanced response for an unforgettable player experience. Scaled-down proportions make the Grand Concert ideal for fingerstyle playing.

Taylor Expression System

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

Satin with Gloss Top

The finish used to create this guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. Available in natural finish.

400 Series

The 400 Series boasts backs and sides of solid Ovangkol, an African tonewood with Olive-Brown coloration, intensely varied grain, and Rosewood-like tone. Features include a solid, gloss-finished Sitka Spruce top, white fiber binding, an Ebony fretboard inlaid with pearl dots, and the Expression System, now standard on all ce models.
