Taylor 500 Series 512ce 12-Fret Acoustic Electric Guitar

The Taylor 512ce acoustic electric guitar is a fingerstylist's dream. This Taylor features a Western Red Cedar top wood with a Mahogany body wood that packs a ton of comforting mids into a playable package. The Grand Concert is slightly smaller as well as the slightly slimmer neck makes for a very intimate playing experience. The cedar top wood has tons of responsiveness in its midrange especially for those players with a light touch. The location of the bridge close to the center of the lower bout adds extra warmth while the cutaway on this 512ce opens up the fretboard while the bracing inside broadens the dynamic range providing more power to the player. The Expression System 2 electronics allow you to take this guitar to any setting and rock! Aesthetic visuals on the 512ce feature faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.

In getting rid of the generic under-saddle piezo transducers, Taylor added their state of the art Expression System 2 pickups in their acoustic electrics. Not only are the 3 pickups individually calibrated but they are positioned precisely sensors that react organically to the guitars energy as it moves through the saddle. Taylor also has a custom preamp that not only boosts up to 25% of hotter signal but also gives you a more natural sounding acoustic with more range and responsiveness to your play.
