Taylor Builder's Edition 912ce forms the top model of the high-end series of guitar-building talent Andy Powers. A small Grand Concert body shape makes the guitar not only particularly handy but also offers the best conditions for picking fans. The wood combination of Lutz spruce and Indian rosewood give the instrument a very balanced and mid-range sound that is very assertive and powerful despite the small design. Especially the high and mid frequencies appear very clear and differentiated due to the high grade of the wood. The Builder's Edition 912ce is equipped with a very playable neck made of mahogany and an ebony fingerboard which in combination with the V-Class bracing and the slightly beveled cutaway guarantees perfect intonation up to the higher registers and highest playability. The slightly rounded edges and the armrest indicate that the overall concept of the company Taylor is very much focused on the well-being of the guitar player. As you can see on the elaborate bindings, the soundhole rosette and the inlays in the Bellefleur design inlays in Bellefleur design, special attention was paid to the exterior appearance of the guitar. This is rounded off with a finely tuned, matte Wild Honey Burst finish on the top and a Kona Edgeburst finish on the back & sides. The guitar is equipped with a reliable ES-2 Expression System and comes with especially precise Gotoh 510 tuners with 1:21 ratio, so that the guitar guarantees a professional and safe stage use. Another highlight is the accompanying case, which is decorated with floral patterns and ensures the best protection during transport and storage.

Taylor - The epitome of fine quality

As one of the largest guitar manufacturers, Taylor is truly an authority in the production of first-class instruments. Thus, professional manufacturing by skilled craftsmen results in the very finest products for life, whose value is always maintained - or even increased! This is due in equal part to exquisite tonewoods, which do not warp due to long storage and selected quality and as a result can hardly be surpassed in terms of high quality. Only spruce, mahogany, cedar or Koa of proven quality are used for the tops. By the way, careful production in combination with the best materials does not only apply to guitars. Guitar bags and all accessories are also of first-class quality. Finally, a conscientious final inspection does not let even the smallest defects pass and ensures absolutely flawless guitars even before shipment.

And that's not all: Taylor also attaches great importance to environmentally conscious actions.

Ebony & Koa: Sustainability at Taylor Guitars

Uncontrolled clearing of forests and overexploitation lead to massively endangered wood species, which can no longer regenerate due to the high pace of mining. These include ebony and koa in particular, whose dwindling stocks and the resulting ecological problems have prompted a rethink at Taylor Guitars.

Taylor Sustainability

Sustainable ebony cultivation in Cameroon

Because ebony's hard, supple texture makes it particularly finger-friendly, it has long been the preferred choice for making fingerboards. Its attractive appearance is also extremely popular for bridges, headstock rests, bridge Pins and Bindings. However, high demand and a thriving black market outstripped stocks, landing Ebony on the Red List of Endangered Species in 1994. Moreover, only the jet-black heartwood, which makes up only a fraction of the tree, was used, resulting in a disproportionately large amount of waste in production. To protect the forests, Taylor has thus been working since 2011 with the Crelicam Wood Mill in Yaoundé in Cameroon to promote controlled consumption by processing waste products.

"We need to use the ebony that the forest gives us" - Bob Taylor

Siglo Tonewoods Project

Koa acacia populations have also suffered severe losses over the last 20 years. Unsustainable forestry as well as overexploitation led to a decline that can only be stopped by proactive action and reforestation. Therefore, Taylor Guitars together with Pacific Rim Tonewoods founded the Siglo Tonewoods project, which aims to rebuild the Hawaiian virgin forest. This is a large cultivation area for koa acacia and other species, which allows the use of koa wood on a controlled scale.
