Upping the ante with a sleek Venetian cutaway and the Expression System pickup, the 455CE performs well onstage, in studio, or at home. The quick, articulate response of Sitka spruce is combined with the warmth and sparkle of ovangkol, giving this 12 string an expressive and pleasing tone.
The Jumbo delivers the extra-deep resonance and volume that come with a larger sound chamber together with its own signature subtleties. With a huge presence, the Jumbo is perfectly suited for aggressive strumming.
The finish used to create this guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

My 12 strings have been Ovation, Ibanez, Yamaha, Takamine,and a few other off brand names. My fingers would bleed after a few hours of live performance,save for the Ovation shallow bowl, but it lacked a full rounded tone. None of them emulated the deep tones I wanted so badly to hear. I had to switch back to the 1778 to make it through the show. The Taylor 455-ce has brought the haunting full bodied tones I have searched for and you can tweek it to your hearts content. This guitar kicks out the full bodied sound that is advertised and I strum hard on the cover tunes without fret buzz, its perfect. Best of all the action is supreme so my fingers dont bleed. Access up the rock solid neck to the third position is better than any of the other 12's I have. Get one and experience the thrill of a true 12 string made for people searching for the right sound and feel. THIS IS IT!
