The Taylor 562ce 12 Fret Grand Concert V class is a smaller body 12 string guitar that produces a warm and balanced midrange voice. Taylor's 12-fret necks feature the slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length of the Grand Concert and a repositioned bridge that sits closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is a slinkier handfeel that makes it easier to form chords and bend strings, and tonally, surprising power and warmth for the smaller body. The venetian cutaway allows access to the higher frets. Taylor's revolutionary V class bracing adds more power and sustain while giving the notes more harmonic unity for improved intonation. This super comfortable 12 string is a dream to play and enjoy, providing a more refined sound.

The tropical mahogany back and sides produce a woody midrange overtone while the western red cedar top offers a warmer response. Other distinctive features include a vintage shaded edgeburst finish, grained ivoroid century fretboard inlays, and Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
