12-string Taylor for Delicate Players

Players who enjoy the slinky string feel of a shorter scale and comfortable shape of the Taylor Grand Concert body will feel right at home playing the 552ce 12-string. This Taylor acoustic-electric guitar breaks from the norm with an open-sounding Western red cedar top to serve players with a softer touch, and tropical mahogany back and sides for warmth, fullness, and balanced projection. An ebony wood fingerboard allows the Taylor 552ce to respond accurately to nuanced playing styles, while an onboard ES2 behind-saddle pickup system delivers clean, natural amplification for the stage and studio.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the natural-sounding Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics onboard the 552ce guitar. This system features a three-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar's saddle for clear and accurate sound reproduction. A master volume control and a pair of tone controls let you tweak your sound and output from the stage, and a discreet phase switch helps you squelch feedback before it starts.

Taylor 552ce 12-string Grand Concert Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Clear and balanced tone
  • 12-string sound for folk, classic rock, and psychedelic music
  • Reduced body size and scale length for comfortable playability
  • Western red cedar top is tailored to fingerstylists and softer strummers
  • Tropical mahogany back and sides for warmth, balanced projection, and great looks
  • Ebony fretboard responds accurately to nuanced playing styles
  • Venetian cutaway for upper-fret access
  • ES2 behind-saddle pickup with balanced output for clean and natural amplification
  • ES2 system lets you control volume, tone, and feedback from the stage
Get a big 12-string sound at a reduced sizes with the Grand Concert Taylor 552ce!
