DISC Taylor 612ce Electro Acoustic Guitar

Details
The Taylor 612ce Electro Acoustic Guitar pushes the tonal capabilities of a maple body, offering the classic bright and focused sound but adding richness and depth to create an incredibly striking sound. The sitka spruce top provides a recognisable feel and tone to the guitar, enhancing the natural properties of the maple while offering a broad dynamic range, perfect for fingerpickers. The hard rock maple neck and ebony fingerboard complement each other, with the maple offering bright tones and the ebony filing up the low end, creating soothing tones that have plenty of sparkle and punch. Its grand concert body and Venetian cutaway offer an incredibly comfortable play, allowing the guitar to sit comfortable in both standing and sitting positions, while the cutaway provides smooth access to the upper frets. Using Taylor's expression system 2 allowing for faithful reproducing of the guitar's sound when amplified, the Taylor 612ce guitar is the perfect companion for any fingerpicking player who wants to enhance their playing style.

Grand Concert Body

The 612ce has a grand concert body, which is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable design. Built with a tapered waist and shorter scale, as well as a lighter string tension, the grand concert shape is perfect for in the studio and on stage. Fingerpickers will fall in love with the clarity and precision of this exceptionally designed guitar body. The Taylor’s maple body makes the guitar bright and loud, allowing each note to sing clearly when playing chords, while its figuring creates a visually stunning and unique appearance. The solid spruce top enhances the natural maple tones whilst providing an incredibly broad dynamic range that yields crisp articulation, perfect for the fingerpicking player.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines, creating a visually stunning look that is recognisable on any body. This type of cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets for a comfortable play, and enables you with more freedom throughout the fingerboard.

Unique Bracing Pattern

The Advance performance bracing pattern features customised bracing profiles and placement for each body shape to optimise their inherent strengths. This bracing pattern uses side braces as well as the standard setup, adding rigidity and helping to maximise both top and back movement. The overall effect is an enhanced midrange, sustain, and tone that features plenty of warmth.

The Perfect Guitar Neck

For ultimate playability and peace of mind, the 612ce guitar features Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
