Taylor 700 Series 712e 12-Fret Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/ Case
Taylor 700 Series 712e 12-Fret Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar w Case
Taylor’s redesigned rosewood/spruce 700 Series guitars are the latest in the Taylor line to showcase an inspiring tonal and visual makeover. The result is a bolder musical voice with a refreshed visual aesthetic that blends rootsy appeal with warm, wood-rich details to give the series a distinctive musical personality. Tonal upgrades include a switch from Sitka spruce to Lutz spruce, which produces a powerful tonal response comparable to older, high-grade Adirondack spruce, and gives players a higher volume ceiling. Two other tone-enhancing refinements include Taylor’s new Performance bracing and the use of protein glue for the bracing and bridge. Together with the Lutz top they optimize the tonal response, capturing all of rosewood’s classic richness and strengthening the fundamental focus. These guitars promise to give back to players everything they put in and then some. New appointment details include non-figured koa binding; a 3-ring herringbone-style rosette featuring mirrored, bias-cut Douglas fir with maple/black trim; top edge trim of bias-cut end-grain Douglas fir with maple/black accents; a new “Reflections” fretboard inlay in pale green abalone; and a new weathered brown pickguard with a matte finish. A new Western sunburst top option is also available, adding an earthy honey-brown complexion for a darker vintage look. The 712e also includes Taylor Expression System 2 electronics.
