Taylor’s 12-string 856ce blends power, balance and crystal-clear articulation, harnessing rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range to give players an expressive 12-string. An ultra-playable Taylor neck and Venetian cutaway make for easy fretting into the upper register, and proprietary Expression System 2 acoustic electronics translate all the sonic detail into a rich amplified sound. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.
