712e 12-Fret

Made with a superstar tonewood combination and boosted by Taylor’s patented V-Class bracing, the 712e 12-Fret offers a versatile playing experience and rich, bold tone in a configuration that provides enhanced playability and a smooth, slinky feel.

Solid indian rosewood back and sides are matched with a Lutz spruce top, serving up warm lows and pristine highs around a slightly scooped midrange that leaves a nice spot for vocals or other instruments in the mix.

The 12-fret setup draws the bridge a bit closer to the center of the lower bout, opening up a bit more midrange presence and providing a more relaxed feel for the fretting hand.

Aesthetically, the 712e 12-Fret bears the hallmarks of its 700 Series companions, including Hawaiian koa binding, a three-ring Douglas fir herringbone rosette and edge trim, pale green abalone inlays in our Reflections design, and a weathered brown pickguard.

This non-cutaway guitar also features onboard ES2 electronics and comes with a deluxe brown Taylor hardshell guitar case.
