Taylor 312ce-N Sapele Acoustic Electric Guitar

Our compact Grand Concert body shape is a natural fit with nylon strings, generating an articulate, snappy sound that will inspire classical players and steel-string enthusiasts alike. The 312ce-N boasts solid sapele back and sides with a Sitka spruce top, offering a punchy midrange and clear highs ideal for fingerstyle play. The 1-7/8" nut width helps keep the strings adequately spaced for fingerpicking without putting strain on your fretting hand, and the Grand Concert's dimensions make for a pleasingly accommodating feel. Our ES-N electronics faithfully amplify the 312ce-N in live situations, and its clean appointment package offers a traditional, performance-focused aesthetic. It ships with a hardshell case.
