Taylor 552CE 12-String

 

Taylor’s compact Grand Concert 12-fret guitars deliver a uniquely inspiring playing experience. The shorter 12-fret neck and 24-7/8-inch scale length create a slinky handfeel that makes fretting and bending strings easier, and the different bridge placement articulates the top in a way that produces a remarkably powerful voice for a small body. Under the hood, Taylor’s Performance bracing is optimized for each particular model, and on this all-mahogany 12-fret, players can expect more warmth, power and responsiveness than ever. Noteworthy aesthetic touches 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. With Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 pickup and preamp, all your expressive playing nuances will translate into your amplified sound.
