If you've ever tried to jump from a 1-hour set on a regular 6-string to a 1-hour set on a 12-string with a bad setup, you know the supreme importance of playability on a 12-string. This is what makes Taylor 12-string guitars so great: Their playability is second to none, whether you're spending $700 or $2700.
The great part is, you get great 12-string tone to boot. On this particular model, the tone is thicker and more balanced than the 150e and 356ce models, which means it's really easy to fit this in the mix with other instruments or underneath your voice. There's a reason so many people I know like the 500-series 12-strings from Taylor—they're fantastic instruments (a fact you'll hear easily enough when you check out our video for this guitar).
