Taylor 512ce – Acoustic Review

Here’s our latest review looking at a Taylor 512ce, featuring…

  • Solid Urban Ironbark back & sides,
  • Solid Torrefied Sitka Spruce top,
  • V-class bracing,
  • Grand Concert body,
  • Tropical mahogany neck,
  • West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard,
  • 1-3/4″ nut,
  • 24-7/8″ scale length,
  • Includes ES2 electronics and deluxe hardshell case.

Taylor says...”The 512ce is one of our first models to feature back and sides of solid Urban Ironbark, a dense, hard tonewood that yields a rich, sophisticated response with a deep low end and high-fidelity voice reminiscent of Indian rosewood, along with some of mahogany’s midrange punch and focus. The Grand Concert 512ce pairs Urban Ironbark with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, lending a played-in character that makes for a warm, piano-like sound with remarkable balance across the tonal spectrum. With V-Class bracing inside, this compact acoustic-electric serves up room-filling projection and blooming sustain, offering a muscular quality that remains sensitive to a soft touch. Appointments include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, a single-ring abalone rosette trimmed with maple and black purfling, and a tastefully subtle edgeburst. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell guitar case.”
