A 12-string guitar is a great way to experiment with new sounds, and the Taylor 562ce offers rich, sparkling octave-textured tone in a body that's comfortable for virtually any player. Solid mahogany for the top, back and sides serves up a bold midrange response with a warm, woody character, offering just enough natural compression to smooth out an aggressive attack for an impressively balanced sound. V-Class bracing under the hood draws out more of mahogany's natural tonal qualities while adding more volume and sustain, and the Grand Concert body keeps things compact and comfortable whether you play seated or standing. A dark edgeburst finish treatment gives the 562ce a dusky allure. It ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
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.
