Taylor Guitars debuted a new acoustic guitar, the 12-Fret.


The 12-Fret was inspired by Taylor’s 35th anniversary in late 2009, when the company built a series of commemorative guitars in limited quantities, including a 12-fret Grand Concert model.

As the neck meets the body at the 12th fret instead of the 14th, the altered geometry of the neck, body and bridge in relation to each other creates a sweet spot of sound – deep and warm on the low end, with crisp, articulate trebles and an impressive
overall volume, the company says.

The Grand Concert body features a back and sides of Indian rosewood and is complemented by a creamy Sitka spruce top, and a cutaway designed to allow access to the upper register. Appointments include Ivoroid binding, an abalone rosette with an Ivoroid-bound soundhole, and abalone-dotted ebony bridge pins. The mahogany neck features a 24 7/8-inch scale length topped with a slotted peghead and crowned with Indian rosewood. On the inside, the guitar’s voicing is enhanced by a special
12-Fret bracing pattern and Taylor’s Expression System pickup to amplify the guitar’s tonal nuances.

The 12-Fret guitar joins the Baritone 8– and 6-String models, announced earlier this year, as part of the company’s series of Specialty guitars.

Pricing & Availability
The new guitar will be offered at a suggested retail price of $3,898 and will be available at bothdomestic and international dealers in late spring.
