Description

What a gem! This fiesty little picker from Taylor in 2008 plays like a jackrabbit, all bright and punchy and responsive, with that easy Taylor playability. Decked out with East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides with a lively Sitka Spruce top, this 12-Fret from Taylor has an excellent blend of warmth, articulation, and energy. The smaller body is supremely comfortable to play, and the trebles in particular are sweet and controlled, with a subtle twist of upper register overtones. Fingerstylists and flatpickers both will enjoy playing this one--the lively tone begs to be played. With Taylor's simple but sturdy built-in preamp and pickup Expression System, this guitar is well-suited for playing at home or gigging out. This package comes in a pretty bow--Grained Ivoroid bindings and a Mother-of-Pearl rosette--and in its original Taylor hardshell case.

You've got to hand it to the guys at Taylor Guitars: they know how to consistently build quality guitars. This 12-Fret has got all of the Taylor superlatives--playability, projection, shimmering bright tone--in a smaller, even easier to hold, body.
 
This would be a cool gigging guitar its compact and easy to play and is versatile as well. The 12-fret design and thin body combine to make it very comfortable.
