The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ Taylor 856ce 12-String Guitar Rosewood, 2014


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Taylor 856ce is based on the Grand Symphony body design delivering a full, rich voice with plenty of presence, and supporting the full range of raw sound that comes from a big 12-string guitar.

At one time, the benchmark for performance 12 string acoustics was the Guild jumbo line, particularly the F-412 and F-512. Taylor has taken that spot with well built, comfortable 12’s that are almost as easy to play as a 6.

This Taylor 856ce dates to 2014 and is in overall quite good condition. It features a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck with bound Ebony fingerboard. The headplate and bridge are also Ebony, and the rosette features an Abalone shell ring.   There is very little wear of any kind, including absolutely minimal fret wear.  

Here’s what Taylor has to say about the 856ce:

“Taylor’s 12-string 856ce blends power, balance and crystal-clear articulation, harnessing rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range to give players an expressive 12-string.

An ultra-playable Taylor neck and Florentine cutaway make for easy fretting into the upper register, and proprietary Expression System 2 acoustic electronics translate all the sonic detail into a rich amplified sound.

Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.”

The original hard shell case is included.
