712e 12-Fret (Western Sunburst)
A Western Sunburst top and slotted headstock bring refined modern-vintage appeal to this Grand Concert, featuring Indian rosewood paired with Lutz spruce. Rosewood back and sides flavor the sound with a sweeping frequency range, while Lutz spruce yields a dynamic response. The compact body emphasizes clarity and balance, and helps keep the overtones in check, making this a great option for recording both solo and with other instruments. The 24-7/8-inch neck adds slinky comfort to the playing experience. Wood-rich aesthetic details include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while the “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim. Taylor’s onboard ES2 electronics supply a top-notch pickup and preamp for impeccable amplified acoustic tone.
