The 2018 Taylor 812CE 12 Fret DLX is the ultimate in design, sound, playability and comfort. This guitar is a true highlight of how far we have come in design. The end result gives you a compact 12-fret design, slinky handfeel and an ergonomic arm bevel — with a tone and articulation that’s bold, warm and punchy for being a smaller body size. The neck’s 24-7/8-inch scale length heightens the physical playing comfort, while the different positioning of the bridge on the soundboard — closer to the center of the lower bout compared to a 14-fret model — helps generate a meatier, more robust response. That boldness is enhanced on this Deluxe model by Adirondack spruce bracing, which raises the dynamic ceiling. For a small-body acoustic, the blend of physical comfort, responsiveness to a light touch, and tonal output make this a remarkably expressive guitar. Refined appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim with a matching rosewood armrest veneer, a rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Taylor’s Expression System 2 acoustic electronics just to take it all over the top.
