The body is constructed with a beveled cutaway for an exceptionally smooth and comfortable playing experience in hand. Within the expertly crafted body, Taylor Guitars innovative V-Class bracing takes shape. This distinct bracing pattern, unique to Taylor Guitars, enhances tonal character as well as sustain and projection. The additional tonal accentuation provided by V-Class bracing works in conjunction another one of Taylor's unique features, an inverted string orientation. Arranging the fundamental string on the top of each pair of strings enhances warmth and character of the twelve-string experience.

Every component of the 652ce contributes to a lush tone that chimes and swells with each strum.
