Taylor 522ce 12-Fret - Mahogany Gloss

6-String, 12-Fret | Tropical Mahogany Top | Tropical Mahogany Back and Sides | Tropical Mahogany Neck | West African Crelicam Ebony Fretboard | Expression System® 2 Electronics | Venetian Cutaway | Taylor Deluxe Hardshell Brown Case

  • All-solid mahogany body for warm, focused tone
  • 12-fret setup makes for a relaxed playing feel
  • Grand Concert body is comfortable to hold and play
  • V-Class bracing adds stunning volume and sustain

Made with back, sides and top of solid mahogany, the Taylor 522ce 12-Fret offers an intimate playing experience paired with a focused, warm tone. The Grand Concert body with the 12-fret-to-neck configuration serves up an inspiring feel that's easy on your fretting hand thanks to the guitar's shorter 24-7/8" scale length. The 12-fret setup also moves the bridge slightly toward the center of the lower bout, helping produce more power in the midrange. With V-Class bracing inside for additional volume and sustain, the 522ce 12-Fret is a dream for fingerstyle players and strummers alike, and will especially appeal to players who prefer minimal overtones. It includes ES2 electronics.

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Tropical Mahogany

The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.

V-Class Bracing

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
