While most Taylor 12-strings feature their Grand Symphony body style, this special edition Dreadnought 12-string offers players a uniquely compelling sound to explore. The dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with a powerful lower register, which adds authority to the 12-string' shimmering character. The sapele/mahogany wood pairing yields a clear, woody and dry midrange that' emphasized with the mahogany top. The mahogany also helps unify the volume balance across the tonal spectrum.
Players can expect an exceptionally clear and powerful 12-string sound with smooth string-to-string balance. Taylor' Expression System 2 electronics bring all that acoustic detail into a dynamic amplified sound for performance and recording. Earthy, neo-vintage aesthetic touches include a shaded edgeburst, satin finish, and black pickguard.
Taylor' refined take on the classic dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes, retaining the essence of the balanced Taylor sound. The guitar will appeal to flatpickers and lovers of traditional guitar shapes and tones.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won™t yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
Sapele' tonal output is consistent and balanced across the tonal spectrum, making it compatible with a diverse range of playing styles. It' comparable to mahogany but its higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more top-end shimmer.
Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
