The 520 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar combines Taylor-quality craftsmanship with an all-Mahogany construction to deliver incredibly rich, complex tones while the updated appointments cater to this guitars simple, yet mesmerizing physique.

The top, back, and sides of the 520 are finely crafted from tropical mahogany into a traditional dreadnought body style that produces a distinct, extra punchy midrange (especially in the upper midrange) with an outstanding response to assertive picking and strumming. Tropical mahogany also yields incredible sustain and gives the 520 a nice dynamic range with well-balanced tones and a healthy serving of overtones. The 25.5" neck is also carved from Tropical Mahogany into a comfortable, easy to play profile and is topped off with a 20-fret Ebony fingerboard.

The 520 employs Taylor's patented Relief Rout, a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin — it "loosens up" the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. This results in an increased volume and bass response with a well-balanced tone.

To contribute to its old-school aesthetic appeal, the 520 features a black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and a neo-vintage grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.

A Deluxe Brown Taylor Hardshell Case is included with your purchase of the 520 to provide you with premium protection.
