Description

You are looking at a Taylor 856ce Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1102176013. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

The Taylor 800 Series Models gives their flagship rosewood/spruce 800 series guitars a whole new twist, offering up an expansive array of tone-enhancing refinements by optimizing virtually every element of the guitar's material construction. These refinements include customized bracing and wood thickness' for each shape to bring out the best tonal qualities of each, animal protein glue adhesive for superb tonal transfer, a thinner gloss finish and groundbreaking Expression System 2 electronics, all packaged together with a refreshed design aesthetic. With the rebirth of the 800 series, Andy Powers, designer/luthier behind these instruments, sought to highlight the distinctive characteristics and unique acoustic voice of each different body shape.

Harnessing the full-spectrum tonal range of rosewood, the expressive Taylor 856ce 12-string is the perfect mixture of power, balance, and crystal-clear articulation. Combined with Advanced Performance bracing with the tone-enhancing Relief Rout, the 856ce has a richer, sweeter sound with more low-end rumble than ever before. The 856ce will give you the full, rich response that you'd expect from a larger-body 12-string for strumming chords, while providing a thick, swirly, powerful response when flatpicking or playing fingerstyle arrangements. For a beautiful glossy luster without sacrificing tonal response, the body of the 856ce is all dressed up in a 3.5 mils full-gloss finish that's over 40 percent thinner. A smooth venetian cutaway offers comfortable access to the higher frets.

The ultra comfortable Taylor 12-string neck of the 856ce is topped off with a light-marbled ebony fingerboard. The fingerboard boasts elegant mother-of-pearl Element fingerboard inlays that were inspired by the diamond-like shape of the various 800 series inlays over the years.

This tastefully appointed 856ce Grand Symphony makes use of some of the finest materials available—the body, peghead, fingerboard and heelcap are all bound by pale maple and a matching pale maple back strip adds a nice touch. To showcase the rosewood-rich heritage of the 800 series and the wood's natural beauty, the 856ce is adorned with stunning rosewood accents which include a rosewood trim along the top edge, a gorgeous rosewood pickguard that's perfectly matched with back and sides, and a stunning green abalone rosette outlined with rosewood.

This Taylor 856ce Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric guitar comes with the full protection of a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
