6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Spruce Top, Walnut Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Eucalyptus Fingerboard – Tobacco Sunburst

Articulate Tone Meets Top-notch USA Quality

The new Taylor AD12e potently pairs an elegant Grand Concert body style with value-packed American Dream features, including solid-wood construction and stage-ready electronics. A solid spruce top ensures a classic, bright but focused Taylor tone. Solid walnut back and sides round out the AD12e with crystalline clarity, similar to rosewood, but with warmer bass and a more present top-end that complements the Grand Concert shape. The AD12e’s smooth body edges and mahogany neck both deliver astounding instantaneous playing comfort that’s long been a player-favorite pick for the stage and studio. If you’re looking for bold acoustic guitar value at a great price, look no further than the Taylor AD12e from us!

Articulate Grand Concert comfort

For fingerstyle and tracking, guitar gurus favor Taylor’s Grand Concert body style, which gives you clarity and a balanced tone that lends itself to layering with other instruments in thicker arrangements where a larger-bodied acoustic would take up too much space. The AD12e’s smaller Grand Concert body and tapered waist not only make it a great studio and stage guitar, but its short scale and lighter string tension also make it easier to play — perfect for younger players with small hands. It also makes for a more efficient design in that the smaller body is inherently stronger, which enables it to be more lightly braced, making it easier to set the strings in motion.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics:

Amplified players are going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 electronics built into the AD11e! 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.

American Dream: guitars worth chasing

Taylor’s commitment to gigging musicians is nowhere more apparent than the American Dream series. Each American Dream acoustic guitar features gig-worthy solid-wood construction that yields rich, complex resonance fit for a pro. Available in a variety of body styles, American Dream guitars are built in Taylor’s flagship California facility for quality you can trust. Other noteworthy touches include smooth body edges for comfort onstage and a premium paper-thin .002-inch finish that optimizes acoustic resonance with the added feel of a light, true-wood acoustic guitar.
