Taylor 522CE 12-Fret

 

Like Taylor’s other 12-fret models, this all-mahogany edition takes playability to another level with a slinky handfeel on the strings and a surprisingly warm and powerful voice. The 24-7/8-inch scale length condenses the fret spacing and reduces the string tension, and the more central bridge position on the lower bout enables the top to pump out a stronger response. With the new Performance bracing on the 500 Series, each model is uniquely optimized to boost the volume, projection and warmth. Aesthetic refinements include a shaded edgeburst body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. A Venetian cutaway gives you more access to the upper register, while Taylor’s stage-ready Expression System 2 electronics capture the guitar’s tonal nuances in a natural way.

Grand Concert

Shapes

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Western Red Cedar

Top Woods

A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.

Tropical Mahogany

Body Woods

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Expression System® 2

Electronics

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

Cutaways

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.
