At NAMM last year, Taylor rolled out a bunch of new models, with new 12-strings all up and down the line. But the best guitar of the bunch was the one you see here. It was, in fact, my favorite guitar at the whole show.
You don't often run across small-bodied 12-strings, and 12-fret 12-strings are even rarer. But as Taylor looked to make a 12-string comfortable enough to play for hours, and one that still sounds rich, jangly, and meaty, they must have been listening to our customers—the same ones who made the all-mahogany 522 12-fret our bestselling Taylor model. If you've been looking for an easy 12-string that sounds awesome, this may very well be the guitar for you.
