Taylor Guitars 522e 12-Fret
Taylor’s compact Grand Concert 12-fret guitars deliver a uniquely inspiring playing experience. The shorter 12-fret neck and 24-7/8-inch scale length create a slinky handfeel that makes fretting and bending strings easier, and the different bridge placement articulates the top in a way that produces a remarkably powerful voice for a small body. This year’s model features the addition of V-Class bracing, which pairs beautifully with this all-mahogany body for clarity, power, and sustain, along with the focus and warmth inherent to this popular tonewood. The V-Class design also puts the top more in tune with the strings, which improves the intonation across the entire fretboard, eliminating sour notes and creating a more balanced tonal output between fretted and open strings. The hardwood mahogany top also helps smooth out a player’s attack for a more consistent tonal response across the frequency spectrum. Noteworthy aesthetic touches include a shaded edgeburst body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. With Taylor’s onboard ES2 pickup and preamp, all your expressive playing nuances will translate into your amplified sound. This Grand Concert guitar ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
