6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Mahogany Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, and Ebony Fingerboard – Shaded Edgeburst
Taylor’s Bold All-mahogany Statement
Taylor’s 322ce 12-fret acoustic-electric guitar features unique mahogany/blackwood construction and a 12th-fret setup for enhanced midrange and relaxed strings. Perfect for fingerpicking or those who prefer smaller guitars, the small but mighty 322ce features new Taylor V-Class bracing for added resonance and sustain. This playing machine features Taylor’s comfortable Grand Concert body style with a Venetian cutaway and a satin finish for fast fretting and even access all the way up the neck. Balanced, lightweight, and sleek, the Grand Auditorium design keeps tone focused and articulate with low string tension and a timbre that plays well with other instruments. When players need an acoustic guitar built for fingerstyle expeditions into lands unknown, the 322ce 12-fret’s surefire playability and rich tone deliver the goods.
Mahogany body for midrange punch and top-end sparkle
The 322ce 12-fret features a resonant mahogany top with mahogany back and sides. Mahogany delivers round and full tone with exceptional definition, with earthy midrange and bold sustain. Guitarists find the 322ce 12-fret has a slightly darker more vintage sound than a typical spruce top Taylor guitar. It still delivers the signature treble sparkle that Taylors are known for but with additional midrange punch from the mahogany and 12-fret setup.
Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
Need to plug in? Then you’re going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 electronics built into the 322ce! The ES2 system features a revolutionary segmented pickup located behind the bridge saddle; this pickup position delivers remarkably accurate and clear sound production that’s authentic to your playing. Each ES2 system features a handy master volume knob for fast level adjustments, in addition to a 2-band EQ for independent treble/bass adjustments to get the sound you need. Plus, the ES2 system also has a built-in phase switch, which offers essential feedback suppression whenever the system is active.
V-Class bracing: a sonic innovation
Bracing supports each and every acoustic guitar’s interior, and, though it’s almost invisible, bracing shapes guitar acoustics in a big way! X-shape bracing was standard on acoustics for over a century, but Taylor’s revolutionary V-bracing is able to tease more volume and sustain out of a guitar’s sound chamber. V-bracing allows wooden acoustic tops to vibrate with more richness, projection, and sustain with more space inside the sound chamber for note maturation. And if that wasn’t enough, this groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation and adds more overtones — those subtle harmonic eccentricities that add sparkle to top-of-the-line acoustic guitars like the 322ce.
