Utilising Taylor's 2016 revoicing and re-design focus, the Taylor 552ce 12-fret combines a supremely comfortable short-scale 12-fret Grand Concert body, 12-string set up, with a venetian cutaway and ES2 electronics for a superb all-round performance and recording guitar.
The smaller Grand Concert is great for players that usually find the traditional 12-string body too big to sit with whilst travelling or in smaller studios, and shrinks the neck scale length down to 24 7/8" for even easier fretting and intricate playing styles. The 12-fret neck joint will also suit smaller players that still want a snappy, bright tonal response and a more comfortable guitar in terms of playability. The cedar top paired with mahogany back and sides imparts natural warmth that responds well to fingerstylists and other players with a light touch. Taylor’s Performance bracing is optimized to boost the power and projection evenly across the tonal spectrum.
A Taylor ES2 electronic pickup system sits at the heart of the 552CE 12-fret, a patented behind-the-saddle pickup design, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Built-in tuner and easy-access tone controls keep you in control of your sound in the studio or on stage.
The 552ce 12-Fret also comes with a deluxe brown Taylor Hardshell Case. Intricate appointments include a Gloss body finish, Century freboard inlay, Tortoiseshell pickguard and ebony freboard.
