Taylor 562ce 12-Fret 12 String Guitar with Expression System 2

Taylor has gone back to the drawing board for the redesign of the Mahogany based guitars of the 500 series and has included a new model, the new 562ce 12 Fret, 12 String Acoustic. This new design has added another sonic possibility in the wide pallet of Taylor Guitars, and now a Grand Concert, All Mahogany, 12 Fret Guitar with a cutaway is available now at Ear Craft Music.

“Taylor’s Grand Concert 12-strings reaffirm Taylor’s heritage of easy-playing double course instruments thanks to a lap-friendly body size, a 12-fret neck, and a 24-7/8-inch scale length. The slinky handfeel makes fretting and bending strings easier, the neck and body are comfortably balanced, and the compact body produces a clear 12-string voice. The hardwood mahogany top adds just enough compression to the attack to smooth out the response, bringing an appealing consistency across the tonal spectrum, while still capturing the beautiful octave shimmer. It makes a great 12-string choice for tracking in a studio, and behaves well with other instruments in a live setting. Refined aesthetic touches include a shaded edgeburst body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell and grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.”
