Description

Introducing the new Taylor Urban Ironbark 512CE Grand Concert guitar with cutaway and electronics. Formerly featuring Mahogany back and sides, Taylor's popular 500 Series now boasts back and sides of Urban Ironbark, an all-new tonewood sourced from Taylor's always-growing urban wood initiative. As a back and side wood, Urban Ironbark yields a bold, rich and sweet voice that's sure to impress players of all styles, giving these guitars piano-like clarity with a smooth character that amplifies each player's unique touch. For these new guitars Taylor has paired the Urban Ironbark with torrefied spruce tops for an extra seasoned tone, adding up to a supremely balanced sound that performs exceptionally well on stage or in the studio. If you're looking for a guitar with a totally original, unexpected musical personality, look no further than the 500 Series. The 512ce is one of Taylor's first models to feature back and sides of solid Urban Ironbark. The Grand Concert 512ce pairs Urban Ironbark with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, lending a played-in character that makes for a warm, piano-like sound with remarkable balance across the tonal spectrum. With V-Class bracing inside, this compact acoustic-electric serves up room-filling projection and blooming sustain, offering a muscular quality that remains sensitive to a soft touch. Appointments include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, a single-ring abalone rosette trimmed with maple and black purfling, and a tastefully subtle edgeburst. Urban Ironbark models serve up a deep, clear sound with a smooth attack, piano-like fidelity and a muscular, loud voice. All 500 Series models are crafted with Taylor's V-Class bracing architecture for improved volume, sustain and tunefulness across the frequency range. Meanwhile, the easy-playing Taylor neck makes for a pleasingly relaxed handfeel while fretting. Taylor's proprietary Expression System 2 behind-the-saddle acoustic pickup translates the complex tones of the 500 Series into rich, organic live sound when playing through an amp or PA. Standard 500 Series models sport an all-new Aerial inlay pattern in Italian acrylic and faux pearl, along with a single-ring abalone rosette, and a full-gloss body finish with a subtle reddish stain for the Urban Ironbark back and sides. All models in the 500 Series ship with a deluxe hardshell guitar case for protection during transport and storage.
