Taylor 312ce-N Grand Concert Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar (with Case)

For those who prefer the softer, warmer sound of nylon-string guitars, the Taylor 312ce-N is a great smaller-bodied classical model to have in your arsenal.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Solid Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
Solid sapele back and sides Rich, warm, and focused midrange; added sustain
African ebony fretboard and bridge Enhances the definition and clarity of notes
Taylor ES-N pickup system Customized for nylon-string amplification

The Taylor 312ce-N was designed with the steel string player in mind, offering an easy transition with a radius fingerboard and a slightly narrower nut width than a traditional classical guitar. Nylon string guitars have a fascinating way of changing the tone and mood of a song, even if you're not playing strictly classical or flamenco music. This makes a nylon string guitar an indispensable tool for songwriters or performers who wish to paint with different sonic colors.

This intermediate, all solid wood instrument offers a great segue into the nylon string guitar world. All solid sapele back and sides offer a dry, woody midrange while the solid Sitka Spruce top offers the complex tonal options and dynamic range all players will appreciate.

The smaller, more compact body shape makes this model super comfortable and with 12 frets to the body, the left hand position will feel more relaxed. With stage and studio ready ES-N nylon active electronics, venetian cutaway, Genstone inlays, gloss top, and 1 7/8" nut width, the 312ce-N will appeal to players looking for an exceptional value in a nylon guitar. The 312ce-N ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
