Sapele’s clear, balanced tonal properties are well-suited for a 12-string. The acoustic/electric 356e delivers plenty of midrange and top-end shimmer, balanced by the low-end power of the Grand Symphony body shape. An ultra-playable neck delivers an effortless fretting experience. Appointments include black binding, a black pickguard, pearl dot fretboard inlays, and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar features Taylor’s Expression System 1 pickup for a smooth plug-and-play experience, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
