Taylor 500 Series | 512ce

Torrefied Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Solid Urban Ironbark Back & Sides

The 512ce is one of Taylor's first models to feature back and sides of solid Urban Ironbark, a dense, hard tonewood that yields a rich, sophisticated response with a deep low end and high-fidelity voice reminiscent of Indian rosewood, along with some of mahogany's midrange punch and focus. The Grand Concert 512ce pairs Urban Ironbark with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, lending a played-in character that makes for a warm, piano-like sound with remarkable balance across the tonal spectrum. With V-Class bracing inside, this compact acoustic-electric serves up room-filling projection and blooming sustain, offering a muscular quality that remains sensitive to a soft touch. Appointments include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, a single-ring abalone rosette trimmed with maple and black purfling, and a tastefully subtle edgeburst. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell guitar case.

  • Solid Urban Ironbark yields power, sweetness and balance
  • Torrefied spruce top for played-in, mature sound
  • Grand Concert body offers comfort and responsiveness
  • Tonewoods yield piano-like fidelity with wide dynamic range
  • Includes ES2 electronics and deluxe hardshell case
  • Responsibly Sourced Materials

Grand Concert - A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Urban Ironbark - This tonewood from our urban wood initiative yields power, fidelity and depth for a supremely balanced, muscular sound.

Sitka Spruce - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System 2 - The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway - The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.

V-Class Bracing - Taylor's 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.
