Builder’s Edition 652ce

This remarkably balanced maple 12-string blends the comfort, precision and utility of an electric 12-string into an inspiring acoustic form.



Putting Maple on the 12-String Map

A reverse-strung setup produces a fuller, meatier sound that’s exceptionally pitch-friendly, while compact dimensions and electric guitar-inspired contouring elevate the playing comfort.

V-Class Bracing

Our revolutionary new sonic engine powers each Builder’s Edition guitar, reshaping the sound to produce more volume and sustain, with notes that are more in tune from top to bottom.

Builder's Edition 652ce WHB

Joining the growing family of master-crafted Builder’s Edition guitars, this 652ce is a 12-string for a new generation of acoustic guitarist. Built with figured Big Leaf maple for the back and sides with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, this model’s shimmering, octave-rich tone benefits from maple’s clarity and focus, offering an expressive, easily-recorded sound that will inspire players to expand their sonic palette. V-Class bracing delivers a unique boost in the 12-string configuration, adding texture and tonal bloom as notes resonate with increased sustain and power, while the guitar takes on additional punch resulting from the reversed string orientation. Placing the fundamental string at the top of each pair adds warmth and body, and our new double-mounted string anchoring system provides cleaner intonation with each string crossing the saddle at the same point. Our special roasting process draws a more aged-in, sweetened response from the torrefied spruce top, and the 12-fret setup brings the bridge closer to the center of the lower bout for stronger midrange presence and a slinkier, more relaxed feel for your fretting hand. This 652ce is appointed to deliver a playing experience that matches its robust tone, with chamfered body and fretboard edges, a smooth Curve Wing bridge, and beveled armrest and cutaway providing a truly fluid, intimate connection between player and instrument. Like many of its Builder’s Edition counterparts, this 12-string is finished in an edgburst-hued Silent Satin sheen that reduces incidental noise for clean recordings, along with Scepter inlays in shell and mother-of-pearl for an artful, eye-catching visual character. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe Taylor hardshell case.
