If you’re on the hunt for a bold 12-string guitar, then you’ve got to check out the Taylor 356ce. No matter what style of music you play, the feel and the tone of the 356ce is a great fit. It features a Sitka spruce top and Sapele back and sides – a tonewood combination that’s extremely well rounded. Taylor’s Grand Symphony body shape also gives the 356ce an amazing balance of sparkling highs and satisfying lows with plenty of punch and projection. Top it off with Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics, and you’ve got an acoustic-electric 12-string guitar that sounds as good plugged in live as it does unplugged.
