The all-solid-mahogany 522ce boasts a compact, comfortable Grand Concert body that serves up a warm, woody acoustic voice that's strong on the fundamental note and minimizes ringing overtones. Our V-Class bracing inside enhances the response with greater volume and longer sustain, while the hardwood top adds a natural compression effect for a more balanced attack that tracks well in recording situations and responds especially well to fingerstyle play. The always-comfortable Taylor Neck and Venetian cutaway make for a seamless playing feel, and with built-in ES2 electronics and a deluxe hardshell case for protection, the 522ce is up for anything.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.
The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.
Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
