Taylor's Amazing 612ce Grand Concert

Taylor's 600 Series guitars are incredibly popular, combining tasteful aesthetics, tone-enhancing details, and amazing value. The solid torrefied Sitka spruce top of the 612ce Grand Concert V-Class acoustic-electric pairs beautifully with richly grained solid maple back and sides to deliver a delicate, beautifully nuanced sound with punchy midrange focus and clear treble — a sound forged by Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing and amplified flawlessly by the onboard Expression System 2 electronics. As your eyes drink in this instrument's understated elegance, your hands savor its flawless playability and your ears revel in its rich, organic tone. Taylor's 612ce Grand Concert V-Class is a feast for the senses.

Ideal for fingerstyle and tracking

For fingerstyle and tracking, Music Now's guitar gurus favor Taylor's Grand Concert body style, which 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. 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 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.

V-Class Bracing: a sonic revelation

Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar’s sound: volume and sustain. The guitar's top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here's where the trade-off comes in: when something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa). V-Class bracing changes all that.

With Taylor's V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and hence sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It's the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation: not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain — but more in tune with each other. V-Class bracing boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. Pick up a Taylor with V-Class bracing, and experience it for yourself.

Exceptional tonewoods deliver timeless tone

Maple is known for its sonic transparency, which makes it highly reflective of your personal playing style. Used for the back and sides of this 612ce, solid maple is complemented by a solid torrefied Sitka spruce top. As a top tonewood, Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity that delivers a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation that’s ideal for a wide range of playing styles, from delicate fingerpicking to aggressive flatpicked strumming. Together with V-Class bracing, these premium tonewoods make for a highly responsive and expressive instrument. The 612ce is one of the most touch-sensitive models Taylor makes. Whether you play fingerstyle or strum in alternate tunings, this guitar conveys every nuance of your playing.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 612ce. The key to this fantastic 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 let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet polarity switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
