This awesome acoustic guitar offers a truly comfortable playing experience, and features a moody look to compliment its moody sound.

Premium-Grade Guitar, Wth 12th Fret Neck Join!

Taylor's illustrious 500 Series of guitars boast the rich midrange and warm, articulate tones that only tropical Mahogany bodies provide.

These all-gloss guitars are considered to be perfect for fingerpickers, and thanks to the new V-Class bracing system, produce greater volume and sustain than ever.

Taylor 522e 12-Fret V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar Highlights

  • Premium-grade Grand Concert-style steel-stringed acoustic guitar
  • All-mahogany tonewood construction results in a balanced, articulate tone
  • 12th-fret neck attachment results in less string tension, and a remarkably powerful voice
  • Features the revolutionary new V-Class bracing system
  • ES2 pickup and preamp accurately captures the guitar's dynamic acoustic properties
  • Includes deluxe hardshell case
  • Finance options available

Solid Tonewood Choices

For the 522e, Taylor opted to fit a Solid Tropical Mahogany top piece to the series' Mahogany back and sides.

The end result is a guitar that produces naturally strong fundamentals, with plenty of clarity and focus thrown into the mix.

Add to this the body's powerful midrange, and you have a guitar that's not only harmonically rich, but offers a balanced, articulate sound.

On top of this, the 522e also comes complete with the new Taylor V-Class bracing system. This works perfectly alongside the Mahogany top piece to produce extra clarity, power, and sustain. 

12-Fret Construction

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.

Expression System 2

At the heart of the Taylor 522e you'll find the innovative ES2 pickup and preamp. This incredbile electronics system offers a more dynamic range of acoustic sound than ever before!

Simply plug your Taylor 522e into a front of house PA system, your favourite acoustic amp, or even directly into recording software, and you'll be guaranteed a faithful conveyance of your guitar's gorgeous tone.
