Another super sweet limited edition Taylor Guitar. This time we have a 4 series grand concert model with a 12th Fret neck join.
So what is the difference between a 12th and 14th fret neck join? Well, It refers to the position where the neck meets the guitar body. On other Taylor steel-string models, the neck meets the body at the 14th fret. A 12-fret neck is also slightly shorter than their 14-fret necks, with two fewer total frets (18 versus 20). The different positioning of the neck relative to the body shifts the bridge location away from the soundhole, closer to the center of the lower bout. This gives the guitar a distinctive musical personality.
The scale sis slightly shorter at 24 7/8 inches rather than 25.5 inches. Which give the guitar a super sweet musical treble.
Here's what Taylor have to say about the 412ce 12 fret Limited:
