Players who find the traditionally bigger size of a 12-string body unwieldy will love the playing comfort of the 552ce 12-Fret. Not only does it feature a compact Grand Concert body, but the 24-7/8-inch scale length together with the 12-fret neck give players a slinky handfeel that make these among the most playable 12-strings Taylor has ever offered. The smaller body produces a wonderful focus and articulation that will sit well in an instrument mix, while the cedar top paired with mahogany back and sides imparts natural warmth that responds well to fingerstylists and other players with a light touch. Taylor’s Performance bracing is optimized to boost the power and projection evenly across the tonal spectrum. Additional features include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics.
