Please make a selection from the drop down menu and browse through the Taylor 522e 12-Fret Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitars that are currently in stock and have been individually photographed/listed by their unique serial number.

Taylor Guitars has done it yet again! After sonically and visually enhancing the 800 Series, 900 Series, and 600 Series instruments, Taylor Guitars has decided to take the 500 Series in an exciting new direction--both aesthetically and tonally.

Well-suited for fingerstyle players and flatpickers, the 522e 12-Fret sports an all-mahogany Grand Concert body and a superbly playable shorter 24-7/8" scale length to offer a warm acoustic voice, a potent midrange, and a comfortable playing feel. Paired with a 12-Fret construction and specially-voiced bracing tailored to this particular model, the 522e 12-Fret gives you more power, tonal warmth, and responsiveness than ever before. The mahogany top provides a natural compression to your sound, which smooths out your attack and makes this a great guitar for recording in the studio or playing in a band setting. The non-cutaway design lends to the 522e 12-Fret's more traditional vibe while Taylor Expression System 2 electronics delivers natural amplified tone. The perfect blend of vintage and modern inspiration, the 522e 12-Fret boasts a full shaded edgeburst finish, faux tortoise shell binding, grained ivoroid Century fingerboard inlays, and a faux tortoise shell/grained ivoroid rosette. Includes hardshell case.
