Taylor 456CE Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar
Recently Updated For 2015, Check Out The Re-Vamped Taylor 456CE 12-String Acoustic Guitar!The cutaway 12-string 456ce showcases solid African ovangkols responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. Like all Taylor models, the sleek profile and low action of the neck makes our 12-strings incredibly comfortably to play, with crisp tonal separation. White binding applies a clean counterpoint, while an all-gloss finish on the body enhances ovangkols beautiful variegation. Taylors onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics respond with high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound that will make any performance or recording shine.
Expression System 2 Electronics Now Available On The 600 SeriesThe Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylors ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylors proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylors custom-designed “professional audio?-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
Ovangkol Wood ConstructionOver a decade ago, Taylor introduced the guitar world to a sustainable tonewood known as ovangkol. An African relative of rosewood, it's a great sounding wood that shares many of rosewood's tonal properties, with a slightly fuller midrange and a top end that's not quite as bright as maple. Being lesser known than rosewood, ovangkol has been a sleeper hit over the years, asserting itself as an instant contender among unsuspecting players who test-drive a variety of Taylor models. Goes Well With: Most applications. Players who perhaps don't have predefined tonal preferences, who may be generalists in their style of play, and who are looking for a well-rounded, all-purpose solid wood guitar. It works well with different body shapes.
