Now with Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class bracing, the Taylor 522ce V-Class guitar brings you classic Taylor playability and signature Taylor tone in a small-bodied Grand Concert design. The 522 is exceptionally rich-sounding thanks to an all-mahogany design with solid tropical mahogany for its top, back, sides, and neck. The 522ce V-Class comes equipped with Expression System 2 electronics to capture every nuance of your playing when you’re plugged in at the coffee shop, onstage at the club, or tracking at the studio. Get the sweet sound of mahogany in a compact and travel-friendly size with the Taylor 522ce V-Class acoustic-electric guitar.
Comfortable Grand Concert body
One of Taylor’s most comfortable body styles, the 522ce V-Class’s smaller-than-average Grand Concert shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more manageable instrument. Its compact body and neck make the 522ce V-Class a particularly good fit for fingerstylists and players who have a shorter reach.
Mahogany is known for its rich harmonics, complex lows, and controlled midrange. The 522ce V-Class sports an all-mahogany build — top, back, sides, and neck — with an ebony fretboard and bridge for exceptional note detail and attack to complement its mellow tonal signature. A dark stain gives the tropical mahogany top a moody look to match its complex sound.
Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the natural-sounding Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics onboard the 522ce V-Class acoustic guitar. This system features a 3-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 offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
