The Builder’s Edition 912ce WHB is a Grand Concert acoustic-electric designed to Taylor’s highest standards of craftmanship and playability, boasting back and sides of Indian rosewood paired with a Lutz spruce top. That tonewood combination generates a beautifully textured, articulate sound with warmth in the low end and sparkle in the treble range around slightly scooped mids. V-Class bracing serves up more power and sustain, and the compact body shape makes for a tonal clarity that’s ideal for fingerstyle arrangements. Features include a beveled cutaway and armrest, chamfered body and fretboard edges, the noise-reducing Silent Satin finish and a dusky Wild Honey Burst color treatment. It ships with our ES2 pickup in a deluxe hardshell case.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
This natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce also shares characteristics with Adirondack spruce, responding with power, richness and volume.

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design
Our beveled cutaway design provides a more player-friendly feel for guitarists who utilize every inch of the fretboard. It features a compound design with a smoothened edge along the corner of the body between the end of the cutaway and the neck heel, providing a more comfortable feel for the fretting hand.
Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
