The Beguiling Charms of Taylor's Smaller-bodied 12-string

If you've been avoiding 12-string guitars because of their traditionally bulkier size and tendency to overwhelm a track, Guitar World has a breath of fresh air for you: the Taylor 362ce. It's a 12-string acoustic-electric with Taylor's smaller Grand Concert body, a 24.875" scale length, and a 12-fret neck join that together, deliver an enticing playing experience with an amazingly comfortable handfeel. As a recording guitar, the smaller body projects a more controlled 12-string voice that plays nice with other instruments and sits pretty in the mix. The mahogany top, paired with blackwood back and sides, adds a taste of natural compression to the sound, balancing volume across the tonal spectrum while still delivering the classic 12-string octave shimmer — a glorious tone that is amplified flawlessly by the onboard ES2 electronics. And with its vintage-vibed shaded edgeburst top and all-satin finish, the 362ce is a guitar that looks as good as it sounds.

12-fret Grand Concert: perfect for tracking and fingerstyle

Want an acoustic-electric 12-string guitar that's perfect for tracking? Taylor's Grand Concert body style gives you clarity and balanced tone that lends itself to layering with other instruments in thicker arrangements where a larger-bodied acoustic would take up too much sonic real estate. And if you're into fingerstyle on a 12-string, its great for that, too. The 12-fret neck join gives this instrument an easy, relaxed handfeel, while the shifted bridge location dials up midrange assertiveness. This guitar's smaller Grand Concert body and tapered waist not only make it a great studio and stage guitar, but its short scale and lighter string tension also make it easier to play — perfect for younger players with small hands. It also makes for a more efficient 12-string design, in that the smaller body is inherently stronger, which enables it to be more lightly braced, making it easier to set the strings in motion.

A potent tonewood cocktail

In selecting tonewoods for the 362ce, Taylor went out of their way to bring something special to the party. With its strong midrange focus, Tasmanian blackwood, used for the back and sides, has a tonal profile resembling that of mahogany or koa — clear and dry, yet also warm — with an added splash of high-end shimmer and harmonic richness usually found in rosewood. A mahogany top adds a natural compression that helps produce beautifully balanced articulation across the tonal range. It all adds up to a highly musical tone that suits a variety of musical styles.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

The 362ce's tonewood combo delivers a smooth balance of power, articulation, and sustain — and with Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 electronics, all that rich tonal character is allowed to bloom without any bottom-end murkiness. The key to this sophisticated system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the guitar's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet polarity switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
