What is a Factory "used" Taylor Guitar? It is not a pre-owned guitar. This guitar came directly from Taylor. It has been thoroughly inspected and may show minor wear but it in excellent condition but does not include the factory warranty.
The girthy lower mids produced by Taylor’s Grand Symphony shape are matched by mahogany’s natural midrange focus, resulting in a guitar with a great depth of sound that can be driven dynamically. On the 526ce, the mahogany top adds a bit of compression to the player’s attack, which tends to smooth out the response to produce a more linear output across the tonal spectrum. The Grand Symphony body and all mahogany construction is the perfect compliment to the shimmer of 12 strings. Players can expect even stronger volume and tonal richness, complimented by a sharp florentine cutaway and subtle edge burst the 566ce offer Taylor playability in a 12 string guitar and volume and midrange punch that you won't find anywhere else. Appointments include a vintage-look shaded edgeburst around the body and neck, faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. The guitar also sports Taylor’s natural-sounding Expression System 2 pickup and preamp.
