Taylor 652ce Builder's Edition 'Wild Honey Burst' 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar

The Taylor 652ce is a superbly balanced 12-string that blends the comfort and playability of an electric guitar and organic acoustic tone in a gorgeous acoustic-electric instrument. Rocking a compact Grand Concert body with electric guitar-inspired contours, a 12th-fret neck join, and a shorter 24-7/8" scale length, the Taylor 652ce’s easy playability will appeal to electric guitarists. The first 12-string to join Taylor’s Builder’s Edition, this amazing guitar also features a reverse-strung setup like an electric 12-string. This emphasizes the fundamental note for a full, meaty 12-string voice. The tonewood marriage of maple body and torrefied Sitka spruce top, together with a hard rock maple neck, also channel the electric guitar experience with a bold, clear sonic signature.

Proprietary V-Class bracing helps deliver clean, focused, tone with articulate bass response. For guitarists who love to strum classic Beatles, Byrds, or Tom Petty songs on a 12-string, the 652ce is a great choice, and its amplified sound is supremely stage-friendly, thanks to state-of-the-art ES2 electronics. Elegant, yet understated appointments include mother-of-pearl Scepter fretboard/peghead inlays, a maple rosette, maple top and back purfling, gold Gotoh 510 tuners, and Taylor’s Silent Satin finish. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
