The richness of the solid-wood acoustic experience begins with Taylor's 300 Series, of which this model is part of. The Taylor 312ce has mahogany's bright tonal response and, together with a gloss-finish Sitka spruce top, rings out with a liveliness and clarity that give these guitars a definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele's ribbon-like grain, with large pearl fretboard dots adding a traditional touch.

Sitka Spruce Top, African Mahogany Back and Sides
The warm tone and open midrange of African mahogany on the 312ce acoustic-electric guitar balances the bright and snappy characteristics of a Sitka spruce top. The resulting combination provides the perfect guitar for strong, rhythmic playing styles.

The Taylor Grand Concert Body
The Grand Concert is the quintessential small-bodied guitar. Its comfortable shape delivers clarity and a balanced response for an unforgettable player experience. The scaled-down proportions make the Taylor 2012 312ce Grand Concert ideal for fingerstyle playing.

Taylor Expression System Electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 2012 312ce uses Taylor's own ES Expression System to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

Satin Finish with Gloss Top
The finish on the Taylor 312ce Grand Concert creates this guitar's textured satin back and sides. The lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra-violet cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
