Unlock a world of organic acoustic tones with the Taylor PS12ce Grand Concert.

The Taylor PS12ce showcases the finest tonewoods and appointments, providing an inspiring playing experience for serious musicians. This compact yet powerful acoustic-electric guitar features a solid Honduran rosewood back and sides paired with a sinker redwood top, creating a warm yet articulate tone with shimmering highs, rich lows and a blooming midrange. The smaller Grand Concert body provides comfortable playability with a focused tone that cuts through a mix, ideal for fingerstyle and light strumming.

Premium Tonewoods Shape a Luscious Tone

The PS12ce's tonewood combination produces a complex tone reminiscent of the finest concert violins. The sinker redwood top adds a touch of softness for a played-in sound with rich overtones, while the Honduran rosewood back and sides provide low-end warmth and sparkling highs. Together, these tonewoods create a nuanced timbre with musical depth that inspires creativity.

V-Class Bracing Unlocks the Guitar's Potential

Taylor's innovative V-Class bracing helps the PS12ce reach its full tonal potential. This asymmetric bracing design provides more volume and sustain than traditional bracing, enhancing the rosewood and redwood's natural resonance. Notes bloom openly with shimmering clarity and chords ring with piano-like richness. Whether playing solo or with others, the PS12ce cuts through with focus and power thanks to V-Class bracing.

Hybrid Electronics Blend Acoustic and Electric Tones

The PS12ce's ES2 electronics system lets you dial in the perfect mix of acoustic and electric tones. It features three undersaddle piezo pickups and two proprietary humbucking pickups. Blend the piezos and humbuckers using the control knobs and three-way switch to produce tones ranging from authentic acoustic to fat electric sounds. On stage or in the studio, the ES2 system provides flexibility and responsiveness for any musical situation.

Luxurious Appointments Complement an Exquisite Instrument

With premium tonewoods and innovative bracing, the PS12ce achieves a violin-like resonance. Intricate California vine inlays adorn the ebony fingerboard, headstock, bridge and pickguard in mother-of-pearl and abalone. An contoured armrest, ebony binding and lightly shaded edgeburst provide visual flourishes. The PS12ce ships in a deluxe hardshell case and includes a certificate of authenticity. For players seeking an inspiring, handcrafted instrument, the Taylor PS12ce is a masterpiece.
