Grand Concert Body
The 322e 12-Fret guitar 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 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.
Tropical Mahogany and Tasmanian Blackwood
The Taylor guitar’s body is crafted from a tropical mahogany top and tasmanian blackwood back and sides, delivering an incredibly dark, dry tone with beautifully balanced frequencies. The mahogany top features a stiffness to create a bright tone that gradually gets deeper. The more the mahogany is played, the more it develops overtones to add fullness and richness to the overall tonality. The blackwood provides a strong midrange focus, adding extra dryness and warmth to the guitar’s sound. The tonewood also produces incredible projection and volume, delivering a splash of top-end shimmer with beautiful richness.
Mahogany Neck and Ebony Fingerboard
Tropical Mahogany is used for the Taylor guitar’s neck, delivering a soothingly warm and mellow tone with good presence in the lower mids. Taylor’s unique NT neck design provides players with a perfectly straight and stable guitar neck, enhancing its resistance to common problems such as changes in humidity. An ebony fingerboard provides the acoustic guitar with extra tightness and clarity, creating a fast attack for added definition.
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.
