Taylor’s 12-fret guitars update a classic steel-string design with signature touches that combine a slinky handfeel with impressive tonal power for the compact Grand Concert body size. The 312ce 12-Fret’s slightly condensed 24-7/8-inch scale length makes the fretting experience more accessible, while the solid sapele and Sitka spruce pairing produces a vibrant midrange with pleasing focus and projection. V-Class bracing bolsters the projection and sustain, adding sonic headroom for lively players looking for mix-leading sound from a small, comfortable frame. Appointments include satin back and sides with a gloss top, black binding, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, a 3-ring rosette, a Venetian cutaway, and Taylor’s stage-ready ES2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
