Taylor 562ce 12-Fret 12-String AcousticTaylor's Grand Concert 12-strings reaffirm Taylor's heritage of easy-playing double course instruments thanks to a lap-friendly body size, a 12-fret neck, and a 24-7/8-inch scale length. The slinky handfeel makes fretting and bending strings easier, the neck and body are comfortably balanced, and the compact body produces a clear 12-string voice. The hardwood mahogany top adds just enough compression to the attack to smooth out the response, bringing an appealing consistency across the tonal spectrum, while still capturing the beautiful octave shimmer. It makes a great 12-string choice for tracking in a studio, and behaves well with other instruments in a live setting. Refined aesthetic touches include a shaded edgeburst body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell and grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.
Grand Concert Body ShapeGrand Concert is the smallest of Taylor's full-size body shapes. Its compact dimensions make for a physically comfortable guitar with an intimate feel and sound. The smaller footprint keeps the overtones in check, contributing to a focused, articulate sound that's well-suited for recording and stage work.
Tropical Mahogany Top and BodyMahogany is known for its meaty midrange character, featuring a strong fundamental focus often described as "punchy," "woody," or "dry," because it doesn't produce a lot of ringing overtones. Mahogany's earthy voice has been featured on many roots music recordings over the years.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won't yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
Taylor Expression System 2 ElectronicsTaylor's breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
Venetian CutawayStandard on "ce" models in the 300 Series and up, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar, with a steeper slope on Grand Concert guitars.
