562ce

Price: $2,999 USD / Series: 500
562ce

Taylor’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.  

Reviews

The 562ce gushes gloriously rich tones, yet it’s the most easy-playing 12-string I’ve encountered. Partly it’s the size.
Small-body 12-string offers great tone and effortless playability.
Whether played acoustically or through a Fishman Loudbox Mini amp using the onboard ES2 electronics, the 562ce impressed with great balance, excellent note separation, and a dynamic range that responded well to different playing techniques. These qualities make the guitar an intriguing option...
The sound of the 562ce is likely to draw you in right away, because it’s not only a deliciously chiming guitar with lots of complexity in its voice, but it also has surprising volume and presence, and it sustains really well.
