512ce
Taylor’s mahogany/cedar Grand Concert packs a lot of midrange warmth into a comfortable, player-friendly package. The smaller body and short-scale neck make for an intimate playing experience, and the cedar top responds well to fingerstylists. The elegant cutaway opens up the fretboard, while Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup gives you a smooth amplified acoustic playing experience. The neo-vintage appointment package includes a grained ivoroid rosette, grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay.

FEATURES

Grand Concert
The smallest of Taylor’s full-size body shapes. Its compact dimensions make for a physically comfortable guitar with an intimate feel and sound. The smaller footprint keeps the overtones in check, contributing to a focused, articulate sound that’s well-suited for recording and stage work.

Western Red Cedar
Cedar is less dense than spruce, and its relative softness adds warmth to a guitar’s tone, especially for players with a softer touch, like fingerstylists or light to moderate strummers and pickers. Players with a strong attack are often better paired with spruce.

Tropical Mahogany
Mahogany is known for its meaty midrange character, featuring a strong fundamental focus often described as “punchy,” “woody,” or “dry,” because it doesn’t produce a lot of ringing overtones. Mahogany’s earthy voice has been featured on many roots music recordings over the years.

Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.

Venetian
Standard on “ce” models in the 300 Series and up, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. The Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, and Grand Symphony have a steeper slope, while the Dreadnought is a bit flatter. Our Grand Concert nylon-string models also feature a subtle, flatter slope, while our 100 and 200 Series cutaway models incorporate our flattest slope.
