Amazing Taylor 656ce 12 string - Quite Simply, Drop-dead Gorgeous!
This beautiful and unique 656ce was custom ordered with Florentine Cutaway and Gotoh Tuners which are a must for a higher end 12 string that plays even better than it looks, if you can imagine that - wonderfully setup with a tonal array that lets notes ring out rather than become muddied the way so many 12 string guitars do!  The only mark on the whole guitar, shown in the image, is 1/4 inch mar to the very top coat (superficial) along the binding when taken out of the humidified cabinet its been stored in - virtually undetectable! Otherwise, absolutely flawless - pristine!  If you've ever wanted an upper end Taylor 12 string that not only plays like a dream, but that sounds absolutely beautiful, this is the guitar for you! Comes with Mint Hardcase and factory fresh case candy.

Taylor's write-up on it:
Taylor’s latest design refinements add extra overall girth to our maple/spruce 12-string sound, while also highlighting maple’s articulation, enabling all the octave courses to be heard. A maple-specific back bracing profile adds warmth, and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction produces an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Protein glues for the bracing and bridge boost the tonal transfer between key wood components, while an ultra-thin gloss finish minimizes dampening. A hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and comes with a deluxe hardshell case.

All in Super Mint condition!
