The 522 Grand Concert 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 522 are all crafted from a rich-grained tropical mahogany. When this high-quality tone wood is constructed into Taylor's Grand Concert body style, despite it's smaller sized body, the 522 is capable of delivering a surprisingly dynamic tonal range. The 522's ability to deliver a punchy midrange with great clarity allows this guitar to sound great in a mix with other instruments, especially when playing fingerstyle, and provides you with the kind of musical versatility that makes this guitar perfect in a number of different playing scenarios. The all Mahogany construction also contributes to this guitars well-balanced tonality and incredible sustainability.

The 522 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.

The 522 features a short-scale 24 7/8" neck carved from tropical mahogany into a comfortable, easy to play profile that makes fretting and string-bending much easier. The neck is also topped off with a 20-fret Ebony fingerboard with grained ivoroid Century inlays.

Other distinctive appointments of the 522 include a black pickguard, grained ivoroid-bound body/fretboard/peghead logo and a single ring Ivoroid Rosette.

A durable, Taylor deluxe hardshell case is included with your purchase of the 522 to provide you with premium protection.
