Overview

Builder's Edition 652ce

The first 12-string entry in our Builder's Edition family of guitars, the Builder's Edition 652ce sports Big Leaf maple back and sides that deliver a focused, player-reflective sound that showcases your individual technique. Torrefied Sitka spruce for the top brings an aged-in warmth and sweetness with V-Class bracing to dial up the volume and sustain. The reverse-strung setup (with the heavier string of each pair on top) generates more tonal heft in this Grand Concert's rich octave shimmer, and other Builder's Edition features include a beveled armrest and cutaway, chamfered body edges, a Silent Satin finish and a smooth Curve Wing bridge. The Builder's Edition 652ce ships with ES2 electronics and a deluxe hardshell case. 

Features

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Maple

Revoiced to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness

Sitka Spruce

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.

Beveled Cutaway

Our beveled cutaway design provides a more player-friendly feel for guitarists who utilize every inch of the fretboard. It features a compound design with a smoothened edge along the corner of the body between the end of the cutaway and the neck heel, providing a more comfortable feel for the fretting hand. 

V-Class Bracing

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.
