Here for sale we have a Taylor 712e 12-Fret electro-acoustic guitar in Gloss Natural finish. Made in the USA in 2021, this guitar features an all-solid construction comprising a Lutz Spruce top with Koa binding and Douglas Fir rosette, Indian Rosewood back and sides. A Tropical Mahogany neck is joined to a 18 fret Abalone fret marker West African Crelicam Ebony fingerboard with matching bridge along with a set of open gear tuning machines. The electronics featured in this guitar consists of a Taylor Expression System 2 with controls for volume, bass and treble.

The Tropical Mahogany neck plays very well, with a Soft ‘V’ profile that fills the hand, feeling thick enough to inspire confidence and feel dependable without being cumbersome. The West African Crelicam Ebony fingerboard feels smooth to the touch, and with the 14" radius provides a playing surface capable of a wide variety of playing styles, whilst fretting is a breezy and sumptuous affair in any register. The 12-fret body design feels great in both seated and standing positions, making this guitar great for long durations of playing. 

The voice of this guitar is warm and detailed, with the Indian Rosewood back and sides producing a punchy and responsive midrange. The Lutz Spruce top provides a balanced, seasoned tone with plenty of low end power and warm detail. The understated high end of this guitar remains detailed but subtle, adding unique character to this instrument. This guitar features a V-Class Bracing design which results in more flexibility for the top to resonate, delivering more volume and a well-defined, full tone. The Taylor Expression System 2 captures the natural voice of the instrument, whilst providing the user to sculpt their desired sound all from the instrument. Overall an excellent guitar, great for all sorts of genres but particularly excelling in singer-songwriter rhythm styles.
