The cutaway 12-string 456ce showcases solid African ovangkol’s responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. Like all Taylor models, the sleek profile and low action of the neck makes our 12-strings incredibly comfortable to play, with crisp tonal separation. White binding applies a clean counterpoint, while an all-gloss finish on the body enhances ovangkol’s beautiful variegation. Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics respond with high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound that will make any performance or recording shine.
