Taylor 352ce V-Class 12-Fret Grand Concert 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar w/ Case
Building remarkable 12-strings is part of Taylor's heritage, and V-Class bracing now resolves some of the tuning idiosyncrasies unique to 12-string guitars. Strings will be heard as very in-tune, whether unison or octave, and are chimey, crystalline and shimmery. The new double-mounted string anchoring design features a shared anchor point for each string pairing. With a single row of bridge pins, the strings all have a consistent break angle over the saddle, which contributes more tonal consistency in the guitar's voicing. The bridge pins are the same as those used on six-string models.
Taylor 12-string guitars are famous for their ease-of-play, their neck stability, their intonation and their overall tone, making them the most popular 12-strings on the market. Taylor's slim neck profile and neck-to-body system allow precise and low action, resulting in the most comfortable "handfeel" possible in a 12-string guitar. Taylor's 300 Series has introduced countless players to the pleasures of the all-solid-wood acoustic experience; it's the entry point to Taylor's USA-made instrument line.
Players who step up to a 300 Series instrument will be rewarded with a guitar-for-a-lifetime that will only sound better with age. It doesn't take but a few strums to learn how the mix of tone woods, construction and appointments combine to make Taylor's famous playability, intonation and tone. The 300 Series has everything you need and nothing you don't need in a fantastic sounding and playing instrument. All 300 Series instruments ship in a deluxe hard shell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.
