Over at Taylor Guitars’ roomy suite upstairs from the main floor at NAMM, master luthier Andy Powers sat down with Acoustic Guitar editor Greg Cahill for a chat about a couple of new Taylor 12-strings: He calls the mahogany 562ce “a 12-string guitar for a 6-string player,” because of its smaller (Grand Concert) body style and 12-fret length, and raves about it’s “unique chime factor”; while the 14-fret, rosewood/spruce 858e has a larger, Grand Orchestra body to maximize its richness, complexity and big sound. Powers also talks about the underlying philosophy that goes into the building of every Taylor guitar.
