This versatile great sounding Taylor 522CE 12 Fret is a pre owned version. In good condition overall, this Taylor has been used but well looked after. There are a few small marks in various places (Pictures available) but nothing extensive. Includes official hard Case. A full set of images are available on request.


This 24-7/8-inch scale length 5 series slotted headstock all mahogany Taylor 522CE 12 fret to body guitar has a sweet and light highly musical woody tonal character that suits finger style incredibly well. Features include the wonderful ES2 pickup system and V Class bracing with some beautiful cosmetic touches and sumptuous finishing. This Taylor 522CE has everything you need from couch to studio. It has some marks and dings but they are purely cosmetic. It comes with the Taylor Hardcase.

Like Taylors other 12-fret models, this all-mahogany Grand Concert takes playability to another level with a clear but warm and powerful voice. The 24-7/8-inch scale length provides the instrument with a central bridge position that helps produce a wonderful direct fundamental tone and fantastic balance string to string. This 12 fret to body 522CE benefits form V-Class bracing, which boosts the projection and sustain and brings out more of mahogany's natural warmth, while adding a touch of extra headroom for more aggressive playing. The V-Class architecture also improves the intonation in a noticeable way, creating more harmonic agreement between notes. Aesthetic refinements 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. A Venetian cutaway gives you more access to the upper register, while Taylors stage-ready ES2 electronics capture the guitars tonal nuances in amplified settings.
