The solid rosewood/spruce 412ce-R features Taylor’s compact Grand Concert body shape, a shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length for extra fretting comfort, and a Venetian cutaway that offers greater access to the upper register. Rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range features a splash of extra top-end sparkle, while the smaller body will accentuate crisp tonal detail, allowing the guitar to articulate well in a mix with other instruments. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup delivers clear, natural-sounding amplified tone for gigging or recording. Aesthetic details include white binding, Renaissance fretboard inlays, a three-ring rosette, and a full-gloss body. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case
