The Taylor 652ce Builder's Edition 12-string acoustic electric showcases a host of options exclusive to the line up master craftsman Andy Powers has curated for this amazing series of guitars. Grand concert, 12-fret body design, with features reserved for the Builder's Edition series guitars and Taylor's V-Class bracing and reverse fundamental octave string design create one of the most compelling 12-string guitar designs ever. Joining the growing family of master-crafted Builder’s Edition guitars, this 652ce is a 12-string for a new generation of acoustic guitarist. Built with figured Big Leaf maple for the back and sides with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, this model's shimmering, octave-rich tone benefits from maple's clarity and focus, offering an expressive, easily-recorded sound that will inspire players to expand their sonic palette. The 652ce Builder's Edition is also equipped with the Expression System 2 that captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

V-Class Bracing and Reverse Fundamental Octave String Design
V-Class bracing delivers a unique boost in the 12-string configuration, adding texture and tonal bloom as notes resonate with increased sustain and power, while the guitar takes on additional punch resulting from the reversed string orientation. Placing the fundamental string at the top of each pair adds warmth and body, and our new double-mounted string anchoring system provides cleaner intonation with each string crossing the saddle at the same point. Taylor's special roasting process draws a more aged-in, sweetened response from the torrefied spruce top, and the 12-fret setup brings the bridge closer to the center of the lower bout for stronger midrange presence and a slinkier, more relaxed feel for your fretting hand.

Features Reserved for the Builder's Edition Aeries Guitars
This 652ce is appointed to deliver a playing experience that matches its robust tone, with chamfered body and fretboard edges, a smooth Curve Wing bridge, and beveled armrest and cutaway providing a truly fluid, intimate connection between player and instrument. The beveled armrest is smooth contouring to soften the edge on the bass-side lower bout to enhance comfort and support for your strumming or picking arm while the beveled cutaway gives you more access to the higher frets on the neck ever. Using next-level craftsmanship, Taylor chamfered the body and fretboard edges to give the guitar a more inviting feel for both picking and fretting. The 21:1 gear ratio of the premium Gotoh 510 Tuners tuning machines delivers ultra-precise tuning control, which means every note will be right on pitch – especially together with the intonation accuracy of the V-Class bracing. Designed to minimize the sound of the player's movement against the guitar body, Taylor’s Silent Satin Finish comes in handy for recording sessions. It also feels smooth to the touch and lends an appealing organic aesthetic quality to the body. Like many of its Builder's Edition counterparts, this 12-string is finished in an edgburst-hued Silent Satin sheen that reduces incidental noise for clean recordings, along with scepter inlays in shell and mother-of-pearl for an artful, eye-catching visual character.

Taylor Expression System 2 Electronics
The Builder's Edition 652ce features another Taylor forte - electronics. The Expression System 2 was designed so all the lovely acoustic sound Taylor guitars create could be amplified. Located behind the saddle, the ES2 pickup has three distinctively positioned sensors to catch the dynamic sound range. The Builder's Edition 652ce also has an onboard preamp with volume, bass, and treble controls, so you can find the sonic expression you're seeking.
