Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String

The Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String is a very good sounding guitar and demonstrates the added projection and sustain from the new V-Class bracing pattern.  Starting from the Grand Concert design, a soft Venetian cutaway is added, and the body is built using a Sitka Spruce top paired with traditional Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.  The 12-fret neck is Mahogany, with Ebony used for the headplate, bridge,  and bound fingerboard.
