12-string Acoustic-electric Designed for Fingerstyle
Traditionally, 12-string guitars have dreadnought body shapes that produce a powerful and boomy low end. For fingerstyle players, the huge bass response isn’t always desirable. That’s where the Taylor 362ce 12-string acoustic-electric guitar comes in. It’s built with a Grand Concert body shape that tightens up the bass and provides a more balanced tone. This is thanks to the warm mahogany top and sweet treble of the Tasmanian blackwood body. The 362ce has a 12-fret neck joint and condensed 24-7/8" scale length that make the strings feel slinky and easy to fret. Designed for fingerstylists, the Taylor 362ce may be the best-playing 12-string Taylor yet.
Unique tonewood combination produces sweet tone
Taylor has embraced many alternative tonewoods in their quest for creating the perfect acoustic. For the 362ce, Taylor paired a tropical mahogany top with Tasmanian blackwood back and sides. Blackwood, a cousin of koa and a Sweetwater favorite, is known for its rich midrange, clear bass, and singing treble. When combined with the warmth of mahogany, the 362ce showcases a well-balanced tone with a textured voice.
Taylor ES2 electronics deliver natural and dynamic amplified sound
Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the Taylor 362ce’s natural-sounding Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics. This system features a 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar’s saddle to better capture the natural vibrations of the saddle. On the upper bout, you have access to a master Volume, Bass, and Treble controls. Once you plug in your ES2 electronics, you’ll hear the difference.
Cutting-edge bracing pattern
Taylor has been introducing innovations since they burst onto the guitar market. From glue-less neck joints to advanced pickup designs, Taylor consistently brings cutting-edge innovations to traditional guitar-building techniques. V-Class bracing is Taylor’s proprietary bracing pattern that provides a more orderly sound and better intonation. V-Class guitars produce strong volume and sustain much longer than their traditionally braced counterparts.
