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.

The Taylor 812ce-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. This flagship, all solid wood instrument offers a great segue into the nylon string guitar world. All solid Indian Rosewood back and sides offer the traditional low end warmth with a nice scooped out midrange and top end sparkle 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, mother of pearl element inlays, gloss finish body, and 1 7/8" nut width, the 812ce-N will appeal to collectors and players looking for a top end nylon guitar. The 812ce-N ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
