Product Description

The Taylor 522 Mahogany Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar is a throwback in its look, tone and feel and is ideal for blues, country and ragtime picking and fingerstyle players! This all-mahogany Grand Concert-shaped acoustic yields a smooth, balanced, easygoing tonal character and great playing comfort from a short-scale (24-7/8-inch) neck. Distinctive appointments include a black pickguard, ivoroid binding and rosette, and an ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. The Taylor 522 is a true joy to play!

All-Mahogany Tone: Fundamentally Strong
The wonderful natural compression of the all-mahogany 522 acoustic has a slower response when compared to a spruce-top guitar. As Andy Powers explained with the recent introduction of the all-koa Grand Orchestra K28e, there tends to be more of a subtle ‘roll-in’ effect to a note.

To put that into a more practical context for the player, it sounds like it’s a really long, sustaining, very controlled attack,’ Andy says. Compared to a spruce-top mahogany guitar in Taylor’s 500 Series, an all-mahogany steel-string produces a distinctive flavor. ‘It still has the fundamental, strong, direct sound you can expect out of a mahogany guitar with a spruce top — that dry, woody quality,’ he explains. ‘But the mahogany top will make it even more controlled, to where it starts to accentuate its unique sustain a little more.’

Playing Applications
Smaller bodies like the Grand Concert 522, particularly the 12-Fret, yield a smooth, balanced, easygoing character that will work well for blues, country and ragtime picking, and the hardwood top can easily handle the kind of gritty, snappy plucking that adds funky tonal color to roots music. Give the wood a little time to open up and you’ll have a guitar with serious mojo that injects a dark, warm, sweet and surprisingly dynamic vibe into a tune.

All-New Appointments
A black pickguard adds a bold visual counterpoint to the mahogany top of the Taylor 522. Other new appointments include ivoroid binding, an ivoroid rosette, and an ivoroid Century fretboard inlay design that comes from the same family as the 700 Series Heritage Diamonds inlay motif.
