Taylor 500 Series 522e 12-Fret Acoustic Electric Guitar

Taylor's 522e Grand Concert 12-fret acoustic electric guitar provides any player a very unique playing experience. The shorter neck provides not only a easier fretting and string bending experience but it also gives off a slinky like feel. The different bridge placement on the 522e adds even more power for this smaller bodied guitar. Inside this guitar, it comes featuring Taylor's performance bracing unique to every model that included with the all mahogany tonewood, adds even more natural warmth, punch and responsiveness. The 522e comes including aesthetic accents like a shaded edgeburst body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. Last but not least, this guitar comes with Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics that make this guitar useful in every situation.

In Taylors process in getting rid of the generic under-saddle piezo transducers, Taylor added their state of the art Expression System 2 pickups in their acoustic electrics. Not only are the 3 pickups individually calibrated but they are positioned precisely sensors that react organically to the guitars energy as it moves through the saddle. Taylor also has a custom preamp that not only boosts up to 25% of hotter signal but also gives you a more natural sounding acoustic with more range and responsiveness to your play.
