What we say:

At A Glance:

The Taylor Builder's Edition 652ce Grand Concert Wild Honey Burst is designed to be the next step up in looks and tone. Built with a rich selection of tonewoods including Sitka spruce, and combined with the well loved Taylor Expression system 2 this guitar sounds incredible in any situation. At every corner you'll find the fine details, from inlays to binding, which Taylor add to make sure this guitar is as much of an experience to look at as it is to play.

Features We Love:

Quality Woods

The 652ce is made from a wonderful selection of Sitka spruce and figured maple rounded off with an ebony fingerboard and bridge. This combination presents any player with a full, versatile, and well-rounded frequency response that can handle many styles of play. On top of it all comes together in stunning fashion. The While Honey Burst reacts equally well with the maple and spruce to give you a guitar that's hard to take your eyes off.

V-Class Bracing

Developed by Taylor’s Master Builder Andy Powers, this is an innovative new style of bracing. It tackles the issue of achieving sustain and tone without sacrificing volume. V-Class bracing allows the guitar’s top to move and vibrate in a more stable manner, resulting in more focus and response from the wood. This control means more volume and projection. The ‘V’ of the bracing travels the middle of the guitar, maintaining rigidity and lending sustain and resonance to your notes. V-Class bracing means a louder, richer sound with better intonation and response.

Expression System 2

This is widely recognised as one of the greatest acoustic pickup systems available. It translates every ounce of tone, detail and dynamic from your fingertips, strings and guitar wood. This gives the audience an accurate and fully realistic translation of your performance.

Builder's Edition

There's no getting past the beauty of this instrument, Taylor have gone the extra mile. Though it's functionality is not to be overlooked, with the builder's edition every aspect has been thought about. The forearm contour offers more comfort over long playing/writing sessions. Equally, there is a finger contour in the cutaway for easy and comfortable access to those higher frets. Gotoh tuners add a touch of Japanese quality. Even the "Silent Satin" finish was chosen to reduce incidental noise while you play. Taylor have thought of everything with this guitar.

Who Is It For?

If you're looking for quality you'll be hard-pressed to find better, this is for the discerning player looking for the best. The Taylor electronics help you sound just as good plugged in as acoustically. The versatile body shape makes it great for all styles of playing.

Highlights:

  • Exceptional attention to detail with the Builder's Series edition
  • Loud, rich sound with great intonation and response
  • World-class pickup system
