Exquisite Tonewoods

As stated above, the Taylor 522ce 12-Fret comes complete with a Solid Tropical Mahogany top piece, sitting atop a Tropical Mahogany back and sides.

Mahogany is prized for its balance, clarity, and strong fundamental tones.

Due to the physical nature of Mahogany, what is initially bright will become much more open over time, resulting in the development of complex overtones, giving you a fuller, richer sound.

Due to this fact, all-Mahogany guitars are prized by traditional blues players, roots players, folk guitarists, and pretty much any player who require a slight punchy quality to your sound.

12 Fret Neck Joint

Whilst most standard-sized acoustic guitars come complete with a 14th fret neck join, whereas this guitar joins the body and neck at the 12th Fret.. This means the strings suffer marginally less tension than with a traditional built, resulting in reduced hand fatigue and easier string bends.

Not only that, but the shifted bridge position offers a remarkably powerful voice that defies all expectations from the smaller body of this guitar.

Plug And Play

Due to its unique design, the Taylor ES2 pickup and preamp is the perfect choice for the 522ce 12-fret. This pick up and preamp offers a more dynamic range of sounds, with more articulation than ever before.

This system helps make this guitar the consummate perforner. Simply plug the guitar into your favourite acoustic amp, front of house PA, or studio mixer, and you're ready to go.
