  • Description

    Taylor Guitars is excited to reintroduce the popular maple 600 series models for the 2015 model year. Incorporating several enhanced design features and premium materials, each Taylor 600 series guitar has a beautiful voice and a truly remarkable tonal character in that's warmer, richer and more complex in comparison to other maple-bodied guitars. Unique 600 series features consist of torrefied tops, revoiced body shapes with specially-voiced bracing and wood thicknesses for each shape, a thin finish with a beautiful violin-hued 'Brown Sugar' body stain, tone-enhancing protein glue adhesives, Taylor Expression System 2 electronics, and new elegant aesthetic appointments that offer a strikingly fresh take on a Taylor favorite.

    If you're looking for a 12-string acoustic-electric with a shimmering voice, beautiful aesthetics, and more than enough volume and power to fill up a room, look no further. Crafted with all of the 600 series sonic enhancements, this Taylor 656ce Grand Symphony 12-String gives their maple/spruce 12-string model a warmer, thicker, more robust sound -- especially in the low end. The 656ce still retains that gorgeous 12-string jangle, and every octave can be heard with exceptional clarity. Capped with an ebony fingerboard, the hard rock maple neck is carved into a comfortable profile and plays like a dream despite its wider dimensions (1-7/8" nut width). The 656ce also employs other tone-enhancing refinements including protein glue adhesive and a super-thin 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. The back & sides are also adorned with a new, hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar" stain that highlights maple's enticing flame figure. Elegant 600 series adornments include new grained ivoroid Wings fingerboard inlays, ebony binding with grained ivoroid purfling, an abalone rosette outlined with ebony & grained ivoroid, and a striped ebony pickguard & inlaid ebony backstrap that offer a stunning visual complement the Brown Sugar-stained body. From the stage to the studio, the onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics will faithfully convey the natural acoustic voice of the 656ce. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.

    Click on the More Info tab above to find out more about the groundbreaking Taylor Expression System 2 electronics.
