12-Fret | Taylor Guitars

    •  thumb-wood-sitka-spruce-250x250Sitka Spruce

    • The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.


       thumb-wood-indian-rosewood-250x250 Indian Rosewood

    • Indian rosewood’s sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum has made it one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods. Its deep lows can assert a throaty growl, while bright, sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.

         thumb-electronics-es-250x250 Expression System

    • Taylor’s all-magnetic acoustic pickup works like a microphone to produce a warm, natural acoustic sound. The ES1 incorporates two magnetic sensors: a body sensor mounted to the soundboard and a string sensor under the fretboard, with an onboard preamp and volume, bass and treble controls.



thumb-cutaway-venetian-250x250 Venetian

 Standard on “ce” models in the 300 Series and up, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. The Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, and Grand Symphony have a steeper slope, while the Dreadnought is a bit flatter. Our Grand Concert nylon-string models also feature a subtle, flatter slope, while our 100 and 200 Series cutaway models incorporate our flattest slope.
