Taylor is keeping the innovation going with this latest addition to their Builder's Edition guitars! They've used reverse string orientation on the 652CE, putting the fundamental string at the top of each pair to give this 12-string more warmth and power. The torrefied (aged) Sitka spruce top gives you a sweet, played-in responsiveness, while the maple back and sides give you all the clear, open projection you want from a 12-string guitar. Taylor didn't stop at making this guitar sound great - they also engineered the 652CE to be incredibly playable, from the comfortable Grand Concert sizing and 24 7/8" scale length to the beveled armrest and cutaway and chamfered body and fretboard edges. Top it off with Taylor's noise-reducing Silent Satin finish and Expression System 2 electronics, and you're ready to go from the stage to the recording studio. Priced with hard case from Taylor.
