A Top-notch Guitar with a Shorter Scale Length
The 712ce is one of Taylor's 12-fret Grand Concert models, where the body meets the neck at the 12th fret rather than the 14th. The shorter scale length lessens string tension, making hammer-ons, pull-offs, bending, and just general playing easier. Using a classic Taylor combo of rosewood spruce, the GC body plays incredibly, keeping the low end in check and having a well balanced tone.

Grand Concert Body
The Grand Concert is Taylor's smaller body shape, in contrast to dreadnoughts and jumbos. Preferred by fingerstyle players for its wider neck and slim bout, the smaller body keeps the low end and overtones in check, letting the highs ring out and shine. The shorter scale length makes fretting easier and lessens string tension, making hammer-ons, pull-offs, and bending immensely easier.
Sitka Spruce/Indian Rosewood Tone Woods
The 814ce's sides and back are made of indian rosewood, which has a midrange similar to that of mahogany's, but expands the low and high end. Now, to give it that signature Taylor tone, the guitar is topped with sitka spruce, Bob Taylor's favorite wood for an all-around great guitar. There really isn't anything this wood is bad for, it can suit flatpickers, aggressive strummers, or even fingerstyle players, and everything in between.
Taylor Expression System 2 Pickup
The 322e comes equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 Pickup and onboard preamp. Three individually calibrated piezo sensors sit behind the saddle to capture a dynamic range of acoustic sound. You can be sure that the same sound you hear acoustically will be there when you plug in to a PA, acoustic amp, or even straight to recording software.
