The Taylor 520e will appeal to players that yearn for a vintage, stage-ready voice, which it delivers thanks to a classic dreadnought body shape and all-mahogany tonewoods for a rich, full-bodied tone and plenty of mid-range focus.
The iconic dreadnought body shape is renowned for its wider-bouted body, which sits higher in the players lap for an immersive playing experience. Tonally, the 520e delivers plenty of low-end power, snappy mids and dry, earthy fundamentals thanks to the mahogany top and body wood. Rootsy strummers and fingerpickers after a bit more of a classic, woody tone will love the 520e, especially if playing as part of a band or with other instrumentalists.
Now upgraded with Taylor's patented Expression System 2 electronic pickup, the 520e is instantly ready to be plugged in for immersive and impeccable electric tone reproduction. A patented behind-the-saddle pickup design and body sensor pickups allow the 500 series' natural fundamental tone to be faithfully reproduced in a live setting, with easy-to-access tone and volume knobs for on the fly adjustments when you need it.
As part of Taylor's ongoing commitment to eco-friendly business practices, they have developed 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. That means that when you invest in a Taylor guitar, you have that peace of mind for generations to come.
