Details
The Taylor 522e 12 Fret Electro Acoustic Guitar features an all tropical mahogany grand concert body, delivering incredibly bright, warm tones with plenty of projection and a comfortable play. The use of tropical mahogany for both top, back, and sides allow for a unified tone, providing strong fundamentals with depth and complexity. Taylor’s grand concert shape is designed to be perfect for both studio and stage use, allowing the guitar to sit comfortable in both sitting and standing positions. The Taylor also features the expression system 2 electronics, enhance the playing experience by delivering clear, natural-sounding amplified tones for gigging or recording. Unlike modern acoustics the neck joins the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th and the bridge is repositioned on the soundboard, resulting in a warm, sweet sound that has a distinctly 'vintage' vibe. Finished off with an ebony fingerboard, Taylor slot head tuners, a tusq nut and saddle, a black pickguard, and century inlays, the Taylor 522e 12-Fret guitar revives a classic design with a high quality look and sound.

Grand Concert Body

The 522e 12-Fret has a grand concert body, which is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable design. Built with a tapered waist and shorter scale, as well as a lighter string tension, the grand concert shape is perfect for in the studio and on stage. Fingerpickers will fall in love with the clarity and precision of this exceptionally designed guitar body.

A Full Tropical Mahogany Build

With the exception of the ebony fingerboard, the 522e 12-Fret features a top, back, sides, and neck crafted from tropical mahogany to deliver incredibly bright tones. As a top wood, the mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a meaty midrange, producing punchy, “woody” tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. The Mahogany and ebony combination provides the Taylor with extra warmth and openness, creating a muscular bass response with a strong high end.

The Perfect Guitar Neck

For ultimate playability and peace of mind, all 500 series guitars feature Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom-designed ''professional audio''-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
