Overview

656ce First Edition

Our maple 12-strings sound better than ever, thanks to the tone-enhancing refinements brought to the 600 Series. Greater warmth, complexity and sustain add to the natural clarity and balance of the Taylor sound, enabling more tonal definition to come through on these double-course instruments. Between maple-specific back bracing and torrefied (specially roasted) Sitka spruce tops, players will love the aged tonal character and improved responsiveness. Other sound-enhancing details include the use of protein glues and Taylor’s ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include new ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. Exclusive First Edition features include Adirondack spruce braces, an additional headstock inlay, a First Edition guitar label, and a commemorative First Edition nameplate on the deluxe hardshell case.
