Sitka Spruce Top - African Mahogany Back and Sides

The Taylor Grand Concert Body

Taylor Expression System Electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 2012 312ce Grand Concert Acoustic Electric Guitar uses Taylor's own ES Expression System to capture top and string vibration like never before.

Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
Satin Finish with Gloss Top
The finish on the Taylor 2012 312ce Grand Concert Acoustic Electric Guitar is 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.
