Taylor's 600 series guitars have been favorites here at TME for a while, so we're happy to feature one of these 2016 12-string models back in the shop on trade. The 656E is as great-sounding a 12-string guitar as you'll find anywhere in the world! Features include torrefied spruce top, "Brown Sugar" stained Maple back and sides, Adirondack Spruce bracing, and Taylor's thin finish / protein glue package. The sound is big, round and open, perfect for banging out chords all night with no shrillness at all. The Maple 12-string by which to judge all others!

Though pre-owned, this guitar is in like-new condition, with little sign of play wear. Priced with hard case from Taylor.
