Pre-owned and in very good condition, this Taylor 522 12-Fret has few, if any, signs on use. As expected of Taylor, it's very resonant and the volume of the tone from the guitar belies its small size and scale. The shorter length makes it comfortable to play as well.

Also includes its original Taylor Hard case.


The Taylor 522 12th Fret is part of the 500 Series of acoustic guitars and features all solid mahogany construction, for both a distinctive tone and distincive look. The sound is uncomplicated and yet powerful and sweet, perfect for a wide range of styles from fingerpicking to strumming.


  • Model Name: 522 12th Fret
  • Body Shape: Grand Concert
  • Cutaway: None
  • Electronics: None
  • Solid Mahogany Top, Back and Sides
  • Includes Hardcase

About Mahogany Guitars

The all Mahogany acoustic guitar is making a comeback! Originally an invention of nessesity, Mahogany guitars were built in the post war period during a period when Spruce was not readily accessible. Despite it's unprecedented success as an electric guitar tonewood, Mahogany acoustic guitars fell out of fashion again once Spruce became available and it wasn't until the 90s that Mahogany was rediscovered and loved once again for its destinctive tone and looks. Mahogany has a warmer tone than Spruce with a stronger fundamental and fewer overtones, which produces a clear well defined tone.

Here's what Taylor say about 500 Series Mahogany Tops

Celebrating the rich musical heritage of mahogany, Taylor Guitars is pleased to expand its popular mahogany 500 Series with several new all-mahogany models.

Mahogany has been prized by instrument makers for decades for its beauty and tonal strength, offering players a meaty midrange character with a strong emphasis on the fundamental frequencies, especially with the inclusion of a mahogany top. “It’s a strong, direct sound,” says Taylor master builder Andy Powers. “Mahogany acts as a natural compressor, so once a note has been played and the frequency set in motion, you hear the pure note without complex overtones.” With its dry, crisp projection, mahogany lends itself to a variety of playing applications. “It works well in a live setting, amplified, on a recorded track with other guitar parts,” Andy elaborates. “Musically, mahogany offers a lot of versatility. Whether it’s someone who is playing with other musicians or a solo fingerstyle player, it will amplify well and make an amazing stage guitar.”

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
