512ce 12-Fret Urban Ironbark Grand Concert Shaded Edgeburst Item Description
This is the brand new 512ce 12-Fret Urban Ironbark Grand Concert from Taylor Guitars. Taylor has a long history of introducing new and sustainable tonewoods to the guitar industry, and this is its latest development that's being introduced in the 500 Series. Sourced in Southern California, the guitar uses 'Urban Ironbark' for the back and sides with a torrefied sitka spruce top and V-Class bracing.
What does Urban Ironbark sound like? Imagine the depth and richness of Indian rosewood pushed up to a new level. The Ironbarks hardness and density comparable to ebony, and with the torrified spruce top the 512ce 12-Fret creates a sound that's loud and muscular with a piano-like definition. For strummers with a smaller frame, the compact 12-fret neck can be more comfortable to play. Tonally the 12-fret neck joint gives you a warmer bass since the bridge is a bit closer to the neck and it gives the strings a looser feel: if you're a heavy handed strummer you're going to get the top vibrating a lot faster on a 12-fret guitar.
In a nod to the classic heritage of Taylor’s 500 Series, the new appointment package preserves a traditional aesthetic, updated with subtle decorative touches to complement the new wood pairing. The back and sides feature a stain that deepens ironbark’s natural reddish and golden-brown hues. The body and neck also feature a lightly shaded edgeburst, with a gloss-finish body and satin-finish neck. Other details include new Aerial inlays in Italian acrylic, faux tortoise binding and pickguard, a single-ring abalone rosette with maple and black purfling, and Taylor nickel tuners.
Includes: Hardshell Case and Paperwork
