Taylor 556ce 12 String Guitar, 2014

Taylor 556ce 12 String Guitar, 2014

The Taylor 556ce 12 string guitar gives a good illustration of how Taylor became one of the prominent builders of 12-strings. They sound great and play very well, but also Taylor’s unique neck joint makes the inevitable neck reset a simple matter of maintenance. Using the same type of comfortable neck profiles as their six-string guitars, but naturally a bit wider, the Taylor 556ce 12 is a breeze to play
