Overview

Builder's Edition 652ce WHB

[okay to use copy from above] Back and sides of solid Big Leaf maple voiced with personal touches from Andy Powers set the 12-string Builder's Edition 652ce WHB apart from the rest of the Taylor line. Coupled with a torrefied spruce top, maple produces a vibrant sound with a transparent quality that emphasizes the unique style of each player, while the special roasting process for the soundboard adds a touch of aged-in sweetness. V-Class bracing draws out more volume and sustain while making for a cleaner harmony between notes all the way down the neck, and the reverse-strung setup (with the heavier string on top of each pair) delivers more midrange heft and warmth. The comfortable Grand Concert body is appointed with an armrest, rolled edges, a beveled cutaway and our Silent Satin finish.

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.
