Fans of the 12-string experience are sure to be inspired by the new 552ce, a compact 12-fret Grand Concert model crafted with back and sides of solid Urban Ironbark and a torrefied spruce top. That tonewood pairing yields power and clarity in equal measure, offering a dialed-up version of the lush overtones and pristine trebles that players love from Indian rosewood. The 12-fret configuration delivers extra midrange punch while creating a more relaxed, slinky handfeel, adding up to a supremely comfortable feel for players of all styles. And with small body dimensions, it's ultra-responsive to a light touch, giving the guitar impressive dynamic range.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
This tonewood from our urban wood initiative yields power, fidelity and depth for a supremely balanced, muscular sound.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
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.
