Taylor 612e 12-Fret Brown Sugar Stain
Our 12-fret Grand Concerts have been updated to feature V-Class bracing, a major development that radically improves the volume and sustain of these compact, comfortable guitars. Together with the revoiced design details of the 600 Series, the smaller body and short-scale neck make for an intimate and comfortable playing experience, while the tonal refinements to the bracing and other materials serve up an inspiring mix of warmth, richness and volume, especially for a small-body guitar. Every material component has been optimized, from the wood and finish thicknesses to the internal bracing — customized for each body shape — to the special roasting process used on the spruce tops to activate a super-responsive, played-in sound. Aesthetic upgrades include a rich, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides, a new fretboard inlay that carries over to include an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony and grained ivoroid trim, and a striped ebony pickguard. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup add playing range and performance versatility.
