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

The Taylor 522e features all solid mahogany construction, for both a distinctive tone and look. The sound is uncomplicated and yet powerful and sweet, perfect for a wide range of styles from fingerpicking to strumming.


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.”
