Introducing Taylor's brand new innovation - the ground-breaking V-Class Bracing System. Andy Powers has re-imagined the Taylor Guitar, designing a new "sonic engine" which transforms the way the top vibrates to dramatically improve the sound. This new innovation marks a bold departure from X-bracing, producing notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other. For a more detailed explanation of V-Class bracing, please visit Taylor's website via this link.
As of 2019, V-Class Bracing is now available on Taylor's smallest standard body shape - the Grand Concert. The Grand Concert is ideally suited to fingerstyle and to players with a lighter technique, and features a short scale and lighter string tension, making it easier to play. This 812ce is made from Indian Rosewood back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top. This tonewood combination is arguably the most versatile and dynamic, and is therefore perfect for a wide range of styles. The neck is made from mahogany, with a 24-7/8" scale and an ebony fretboard decorated with Element inlays. The 812ce is fitted with Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup - an under-saddle transducer which amplifies the true tone of each unique guitar. Also featuring premium appointments such as a stunning rosewood pickguard, abalone soundhole rosette, maple binding and back strip, smoked nickel tuners, as well as a new black graphite nut and new inner sticker featuring the signature of master guitar designer, Andy Powers.
