With all-star tonewoods, artful appointments, top-tier craftsmanship and a distinctively bold, contemporary voice, Taylor’s 800 Series blends a seamless playing experience with unmatched clarity and balance. The time-honored combination of solid Indian rosewood with Sitka spruce produces a versatile tone rich with harmonic texture and ringing overtones, with V-Class bracing inside most models to dial up greater volume and sustain. Sharp aesthetic details, the comfortable Taylor neck, player-focused features like the radius armrest and a wide selection of body styles, the American-made 800 Series sits at the intersection of craft and wide-ranging musical inspiration—whether you’re interested in our array of standard models or the ultra-refined pair of Builder’s Edition models.
Built on the all-star tonewood pairing of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce, the 812ce offers players a more compact take on the flagship Taylor experience. This compact Grand Concert acoustic-electric serves up a richly textured sound with lush overtones, crisp trebles and a warm low range, articulate enough for fingerstyle play but powerful enough for traditional strumming and flatpicking. V-Class bracing helps dial up more volume and longer sustain, and the radius-style rosewood armrest makes for an even more welcoming feel. Subtle, yet striking appointments include a smoky ebony fretboard, maple binding, an abalone rosette and a super-thin full-body gloss finish. The 812ce includes ES2 electronics and ships with a hardshell case.
