Taylors innovative V-class bracing is housed brilliantly in the 12 fret 312ce. Each note carries an amount of crisp, bright, tonality that you just cannot get enough of, that is just a Taylor though. Due to the 12 fret body design, those crisp notes are allowed to sustain forever and a day if you let them. The other area that the 12 fret design stands out is in the action on the neck; it takes no pressure at all to fret the strings on this gorgeous instrument!
