Lefthanded Classic Taylor 412ce-N LH
Bob Taylor is known for his innovations in guitar construction. There are enough examples of this: whether it is an expression pickup system or a bolt on neck, the American manufacturer is not one of the leaders of his guild for nothing.
So now there is the Taylor 400 series also as concert guitars. The 412CE-N LH is a left-handed guitar with nylons strings in Grand Concert design. Its smaller body makes it ideal for finger picking.
The back and sides are made of Ovangkol, a hard, but also elastic tropical wood, reminiscent of walnut. The sound is more comparable to rosewood, but with more sparkle in the middle frequencies. In combination with the spruce top, a versatile guitar with a wide sound spectrum has been developed.
The expression pickup system makes the nylon string an absolute stage guitar: a unique sound experience!
But this guitar is not just an audible, but also a visual feast. The white binding forms a fresh contrast to the spruce top and the dark tone of the sides. The simple elegance of this concert guitar is loosened by mother-of-pearl inlays in the fingerboard. This Lefthand version is available including hard case.
