Taylor 522e 12-Fret w/ Case - Mahogany
This small bodied acoustic packs a punch; with V-Class bracing, Solid Mahogany construction, and a specifically engineered bridge placement, the 522ce has an incredible sound. Tropical Mahogany is often named a "midrange powerhouse", this tonewood is known for producing clear cutting mids, with superior balance and articulation. Mahogany is a great choice for this Concert body with a 12 fret neck join, coupled with V-Class bracing Taylor have created a compact guitar with surprising warmth and sustain.
You might wonder why someone would want an acoustic guitar with a shorter scale length that joins the body at the 12th fret. Essentially it's about the playing experience, on a guitar of this stature, bending is easier than ever, and the neck becomes an exponentially smaller playing field-this is helpful for players with a smaller frame. The 522ce 12 fret has its bridge further from the soundhole, and closer to the lower bout, allowing it to anchor a more flexible place on the soundboard, this creates greater sustain and low end.
Taylor designed a brilliant guitar through the 522ce 12-Fret, one that sounds fantastic for fingerpicking and flat picking alike. This model is more compact and lightweight than the common acoustic guitar, with a convincing warmth and projection.
This guitar includes Taylor's ES2 pickup / preamp and a Taylor Deluxe Hardshell Case.
