The cutaway 12-string 456ce-R blends solid Indian rosewood’s sweeping tonal range with the shimmering richness of the 12-string voice. Like all Taylor models, the sleek profile and low action of the neck makes our 12-strings incredibly comfortable to play all the way up the fretboard, with crisp tonal separation. White binding applies a clean counterpoint, while an all-gloss finish on the body enhances rosewood’s dusky beauty. Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics respond with high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound that will make any performance or recording shine.
