    Taylor quality and playability that you’ll feel.

    You won’t forget the sound of the Taylor 656ce Maple/Spruce Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar. It's full, lush and clear with Taylor’s signature 12-string playability.

    Big Leaf Maple/Stika Spruce
    The 656ce Maple Grand Symphony 12-String Acoustic-Electric is constructed of big leaf maple back and sides with a Western Sitka spruce top so it has a crisp, bright tone that cuts through on stage.

    Grand Symphony (GS)
    Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS body of the 656ce is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.

    Expression System®
    Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies your guitar with a natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone, amplified.
