A classic Taylor design with red ironbark back and sides for richness and density.

The Taylor 512ce Grand Concert acoustic-electric guitar is crafted with red ironbark for its back and sides, sourced in southern California through Taylor’s urban wood initiative. Red ironbark features the sonic richness of Indian rosewood, combined with the density and hardness of ebony to push your sound to the next level. Paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top and Taylor V-Class bracing, the 512ce’s sound is both muscular and sweet, with piano-like fidelity and strength across the entire frequency spectrum.

The 512ce’s finish is designed to preserve the traditional aesthetic of the wood, with subtle decorative touches to complement and highlight. The back and sides feature a stain that deepens ironbark’s natural reddish and golden-brown hues. The body and neck also feature a lightly shaded edgeburst, with a gloss-finished body and satin-finished neck. Additional appointments include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic and faux pearl, faux tortoise binding and pickguard, a single-ring abalone rosette with maple and black purfling, and Taylor nickel tuners. The 512ce comes with a Venetian cutaway and onboard ES2 electronics, and ships with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
