"The Taylor Guitars Grand Concert 362ce is a new small-body 12-string guitar that’s extremely player-friendly."
-Guitar World, November 2017
Our Grand Concert 12-string guitars have been a revelation to players who’ve otherwise avoided 12-strings due to their traditionally bulkier size. In addition to the compact cutaway body, the 12-fret neck and 24-7/8-inch scale length translate into a physically inviting playing experience with a supremely comfortable handfeel. Sonically, the smaller body produces a more controlled 12-string voice that sits beautifully in a mix for recording applications. With the 362ce, a hardwood mahogany top (paired with blackwood back and sides) lends a bit of natural compression to the response, helping to create a balanced output across the tonal spectrum while still capturing the 12-string’s beautiful octave shimmer. Visually, the shaded edgeburst top and all-satin finish conjure a dusky vintage look. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s ES2 electronics and includes a deluxe hardshell case.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Blackwood produces a strong volume, with a focused midrange and rich top-end shimmer.

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
