Description

It is alway a pleasure to find ourselves with a Taylor 12-string in the shop; in fact, we've had several Koa 12s through in the past few months, and this one's sure to move just as quickly. That's because, plain and simple, Taylor makes a killer 12-string. Hands down. This 2001 K-65ce is a real show stopper in immaculate condition, despite its 14 years. Whereas many 12-strings struggle to perform well as a dynamic instrument, this K-65ce has a robust reportoire up its Tortoise-style sleeves and performs equally well for a big, loud strummer or an articulate and subtle fingerstylist. The voice is rich and detailed, and sounds fabulous for darker passages or brighter, livelier arrangements. The projection is as magnanimous as you'd expect from a Taylor 12-string Jumbo with Koa back, sides, and top--and it has a quick responsiveness to match. This one, in particular, is setup glossy smooth and practically plays itself. This guitar comes with onboard Fishmann Prefix Plus-T electronics (both pickup and preamp) and the original hardshell Taylor case.

Taylor 12s blow the competition away--far, far away. I love how nuanced their sound is, capable of so many different voices, without becoming a brick wall of sound. I found myself tending toward darker, introspective passages on this guitar, but I know for a fact that major arrangements sound equally impressive.
 
Nice jangly 12-string sound that is clear as a bell and easy to play.
