Taylor's all-mahogany guitars are among our very favorites. Our bestseller for the past several years has been the 522 12-fret—that guitar boasts great balance and playability.
But the new 2016 update seems—pardon the pun—tailor-made for their larger bodies. They've added a modified version of the Advanced Performance bracing that revolutionized the 800 series guitars a few years back, and this adds a healthy dose of extra punch and volume to the thick meatiness of the mahogany-topped tone. Throw in a new stain + sunburst combo for a cool new look, and you've got quite an update to an already awesome instrument. You're going to like this guitar.
