Taylor’s bold-voiced 526e Grand Symphony projects a strong lower midrange emphasis and pairs well with mahogany’s strong, focused tone. Rootsy strummers and pickers will love the blend of power and articulation. A black pickguard, ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay tastefully convey mahogany’s time-honored heritage.
Expression System 2 (ES2)
The Taylor ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.
Together with Taylor’s custom-designed ‘professional audio’-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
