520e

Taylor’s 500 Series Dreadnoughts boast several distinctive design strokes, including a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length and a V-carve neck with a slotted headstock. The result is an inviting handfeel that makes string bending fun and serves up a great Dreadnought option for singer-songwriters in search of a bold and expressive voice.

The all-mahogany body unleashes a woody, focused tone with appealing midrange warmth, and the mahogany top helps smooth out a player’s attack to produce a balanced voice with crisp highs and soft lows. With Taylor’s Performance bracing optimized for the Dreadnought shape and the model’s other features, the 520e makes a musically versatile acoustic that blends well with other instruments, either unplugged or amplified with Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics.

A shaded edgeburst body, faux tortoise shell binding, and grained ivoroid Century inlays support a neo-classic aesthetic, especially with the slotted headstock.
