We’ve made the evocative tone of a nylon-string guitar more accessible to steel-string players by crafting our nylon models with signature Taylor playability. The Grand Concert 812ce-N features a 12-fret, 1 7/8-inch neck and a radiused fretboard (20-inch), along with a cutaway and our ES-N® pickup for easy amplified tone. Premium appointments include maple binding, rosewood top edge trim, and Taylor’s Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl.
