Introducing the Taylor 500 Series, where craftsmanship, innovation, and urban sustainability unite to create an exquisite collection of acoustic guitars. At the heart of this series lies Urban Ironbark, the latest addition to Taylor's urban wood initiative, redefining the possibilities of tonewoods. Amongst the three new models, the Taylor 512ce 12-Fret stands as a testament to uncompromising quality and exceptional musical expression.

Crafted with precision and passion, the 512ce 12-Fret showcases a perfect harmony of design and materials. Its solid Urban Ironbark back and sides, paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, form a harmonious alliance that yields a lively, muscular sound with a lush resonance. Boasting a tone profile akin to the revered Indian rosewood, Urban Ironbark delivers a high-fidelity response, characterised by clear trebles, warm lows, and a captivating overtone character. This guitar's dynamic musical personality shines through, offering a complex sonic mix that remains balanced across the frequency spectrum.

Taylor's dedication to innovation comes to life in the 500 Series, with V-Class bracing present in all three models. The 512ce 12-Fret, alongside the Grand Pacific dreadnought 517e and the compact 12-string/12-fret 552ce, benefits from the bold projection and mature sweetness imparted by torrefied spruce. With V-Class bracing, these guitars exhibit increased volume, longer sustain, and clearer harmony between notes, allowing you to explore new dimensions of musical expression.

Strummers and songwriters will undoubtedly fall in love with the seasoned, blended sound of the 517e or the rich, clear shimmer of the compact 552ce. For fingerpickers, the 512ce 12-Fret is a dream come true, with its unique construction coaxing out more midrange power and a slinky, relaxed handfeel, providing the ultimate comfort during extended playing sessions.

Beyond its exceptional tonal qualities, the Taylor 512ce 12-Fret boasts an aesthetic allure that captivates the eye. The guitar features faux tortoiseshell binding with black acrylic and maple purfling, a single-ring green abalone rosette, nickel hardware, a faux tortoiseshell pickguard, and a subtle shaded edgeburst that beautifully highlights Urban Ironbark's natural reddish hues. Each model in the series is adorned with unique inlays: the 517e showcases a stunning Marquise design, while the 552ce and 512ce 12-Fret feature the Aerial pattern, all in elegant faux pearl Italian acrylic.

Designed for versatility, the Taylor 512ce 12-Fret features a comfortable Neo-Tropical Mahogany neck and a West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard, ensuring effortless playability and smooth navigation along the 24-7/8" scale length. The nut width of 1-3/4" provides ample spacing for intricate fingerstyle techniques, allowing you to express yourself with unparalleled finesse.

To complete the package, the Taylor 512ce 12-Fret comes equipped with the renowned ES2 electronics, ensuring that its captivating sound translates flawlessly to amplification systems, making it ideal for both studio recordings and live performances.

Ensuring the safety and longevity of this exquisite instrument, the 512ce 12-Fret comes with a Deluxe Hardshell Case, providing secure protection during transportation and storage.

In conclusion, the Taylor 512ce 12-Fret from the 500 Series is more than just a guitar; it's an unparalleled musical companion that elevates your playing to new heights. Its extraordinary craftsmanship, innovative features, and sustainable materials are a testament to Taylor's commitment to delivering high-quality, world-class instruments.
