Taylor 526e acoustic-electric guitar offers you substantial, balanced tone, and crystalline clearness. Session acoustic guitarists tend to prefer mahogany as a tonewood, as it delivers a concentrated sound that sits well in a mix without requiring extensive processing. This excellent, all-mahogany axe delivers pure notes without complicated overtones – a strong, direct sound with natural compression that’s best for a variety of applications. This guitar is sheer magic in the studio, and its onboard Expression System 2 electronics provide perfect noise onstage. Get major musical adaptability with Taylor’s 526e.

Taylor All-Mahogany 526e Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glimpse:
Taylor’s Grand Symphony body design
Taylor Expression System 2 electronics provide remarkable sound onstage
Gorgeous, long lasting Taylor surface
Grand Symphony body style: big, balanced tone with articulation
Bob Taylor established the Grand Symphony body style to press the sonic envelope (yet again). Much deeper, fuller, and louder than a Dreadnought, the Taylor 526e acoustic-electric guitar provides sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 526e gives your notes expression – even with a light attack. The Grand Symphony is a body design that suggests it. At Sweetwater they like meaningful and toneful acoustic guitars, and the Taylor 526e acoustic-electric certainly fits that bill.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics provide remarkable sound onstage
If you play plugged in, then you’re going to enjoy the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronic devices constructed into your 526e acoustic-electric guitar. The key to this great system is the 3-section proprietary pickup situated behind the saddle. Because of where it’s located and how it’s integrated into the Taylor 526e’s saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with extremely clear and precise noise. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the noise you require, and a discreet phase switch provides essential onboard feedback suppression.

Gorgeous, resilient Taylor surface
The shiny surface utilized on the 526e was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured polyester surface is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. You get the feel and tonal benefits of conventional nitrocellulose lacquer, with the durability of a contemporary surface. The amazing thinness of the surface permits the wood to resonate more easily for superior tone; it’s also clearer than lacquer and won’t yellow in time – a typical problem with nitro finishes as they age. The Taylor surface provides you the very best of both worlds.
