The 520 combines a classic Taylor body shape with the warm, robust presence found in all-Mahogany woods to produce a fine acoustic model that all levels or types of players can appreciate.
The Taylor 520 is particularly well suited to players who might switch between different playing styles, particularly harder strummers, Bluegrass players and flatpickers with a fast attack. Traditionally, Mahogany tends to offer 'dry' and 'woody' tone which is enhanced by the dreadnought's strong low end and midrange presence. Regardless of your playing style, if you simply appreciate the look and feel of a wider-waist on a dreadnought, this could be the one for you. The 520's clear and direct tonal character makes it a great option for playing with other instruments as part of a band mix.
Throwback appointments include a black pickguard, ivoroid binding, chrome tuners and the 'deluxe' Heritage Diamonds fretboard inlay in ivoroid. Also comes with a hardshell case.
Taylor’s commitment to conservation-minded tonewood consumption has led to some industry-leading initiatives. One is a pioneering mahogany sourcing partnership with remote forest communities in Honduras. The well-managed program has become a model of sustainable social forestry and enabled communities to improve their quality of life while properly managing the forest resources around them for the long-term future.
The 520 will appeal to rootsy flatpickers and lovers of traditional guitar shapes and tones, but shopping for your next acoustic guitar is now easier than ever at PMT - Simply speak to our in-store experts for a hands-on demonstration across the entire Taylor range to find your Perfect Fit!
