Taylor 512ce 12-Fret - V-Class Bracing
12-frets Grand Conert ideel for fingerspill med Cedertre topp og ES2 elektronikk
Denne fingerspillende-drømmen blander den fysiske komforten til den kompakte Grand Concert-kroppen, med den varme og responsive tonen til mahogny toppet med sedertre i lokket. Den slankehalsprofilen, den nette kroppen og en litt kortere mensur (24-7/8") gir en lettspilt og uttrykksfull 6-strenger.
En oppgradering fra tidligere modeller er den banebrytende V-class bracingen, som gjør gitaren enda mer dynamisk, direkte og sørger for bedre intonasjon over hele gripebrettet. Konfigurasjonen med 12-fret. som posisjonerer broen lengre bak på kroppen, fremkaller ekstra varme, punch og en enda mer raffinert tone. Visuelt sett har den en slotted headstock, ivoroid Century innleg, faux tortoise shell binding og plekterbrett i en neo-vintage stil parret med moderne detaljer som venetiansk cutaway og Taylor sin ES2 elektronikk.

Taylor's Delectable 12-fret Grand Concert
Combining tasteful aesthetics, tone-enhancing details, and amazing value, Taylor's 500 Series guitars are incredibly popular. The richly grained western red cedar top of the 512ce 12-Fret Grand Concert V-Class acoustic-electric pairs beautifully with tropical mahogany 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 512ce 12-Fret Grand Concert V-Class is a feast for the senses.
Ideal for fingerstyle and tracking
For fingerstyle and tracking, 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. 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 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
The Taylor 512ce combines a western red cedar top with tropical mahogany sides and back. Thanks to cedar's quick response and midrange overtones, we regularly recommends cedar-topped acoustics for fingerstylists and other players with a light touch. As a back and side tonewood, mahogany generally serves up a focused sound with a full midrange. In the 512ce, the sonic attributes of these two premium tonewoods join forces with V-Class bracing, which gives this small-bodied guitar surprising punch and presence that belies its diminutive size.
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 512ce 12-Fret. 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 lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet polarity switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
