What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
African ebony fretboard and bridge Enhances the definition and clarity of notes
Indian rosewood back and sides Articulate mids, big lows and smooth highs
Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
V-Class bracing V-shaped design; excellent projection and sustain

The Taylor 812e 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 812e 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 Sitka spruce top, an amazingly versatile wood for many types of playing. Additional features include a full-gloss body, V-Class bracing, maple binding with a rosewood radius armrest, abalone element fretboard inlay, and award winning Expression System 2 electronics. The 812e V ships in a deluxe hard shell case.
