Taylor’s 562ce Grand Concert acoustic-electric 12-string guitar boasts several uniquely compelling design features, including a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length and a V-carve neck with a slotted headstock. The result is an inviting handfeel with less string tension – making string bends fun – and that matches-up well with chord strummers and vocals. The dynamic response of the Venetian cutaway works especially well with the dry, woody sound of mahogany, producing a balanced voice with crisp highs and soft lows. With Taylor’s Performance bracing optimized for the Grand Concert shape and the model’s other features, the 562ce makes a musically versatile instrument that blends well with other instruments.
