The Taylor 712ce Western Sunburst top embodies Taylor's V-Class bracing which, when combined with the Grand Concert body shape, yields a nice, balanced tone that is ideal for fingerstyle players or musicians who need a comfortable guitar. The 712ce can easily fit in a live audio mix with its unique sonic footprint. V Class bracing greatly increases sustain and volume while improving intonation stability.
The guitar features the grand concert body shape, a smaller, more comfortable body size and the 24 7/8" short scale neck reduces tension and creates an inviting playing experience that reduces hand fatigue. Solid rosewood back and sides produce a rich bass response, sparkling high end, with a slightly scooped midrange tone. The guitar also features a solid Lutz spruce top, a hybrid of white and Sitka spruce, giving the player more headroom. Additional features include a full-gloss body with a western sunburst top, V-Class bracing, koa binding with douglas fir herringbone trim, abalone reflections fretboard/peghead inlays, and award winning Expression System 2 electronics. The 712ce V Class ships in a deluxe hard shell case.
