One of two Grand Concert 12-strings offered within our 300 Series, the cutaway 352ce features sapele back and sides paired with a Sitka spruce top. The lap-friendly body is a welcome antidote to the bigger body styles traditionally used for 12-strings; the result is more physically accessible option, especially with the 12-fret neck and slightly condensed 24-7/8-inch scale length. The smaller body makes it easy to set the strings in motion, and sonically, the controlled acoustic voice won’t overpower a mix, making it a wonderful choice for adding 12-string texture to a recording or accompanying other instruments live.
V-Class bracing brings an entirely new sonic dimension to this model, delivering enhanced volume and sustain while smoothing out intonation up and down the fretboard for a seamlessly musical sound. Compared to the mahogany-top 362ce, this spruce-top edition will tend to produce a slightly brighter sound, with appealing dynamic range and crisp articulation. Our onboard ES2 electronics capture all that natural 12-string detail for amplified playing applications. The guitar comes with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Grand Concert Shape
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Sitka Spruce Top
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, sapele will deliver for any playing style.
Expression System® 2 Electronics
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
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.
A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
