Taylor 657ce Grand Pacific Doce Doble Body

The Grand Pacific Body Resonates With Warmth

The Taylor 657ce Grand Pacific Doce Doble boasts a large Grand Pacific body shape that produces a warm, balanced tone with crisp highs and robust low end. It also bears a Florentine-style cutaway for a distinctively sharp, modern look—functionally, the deep cut offers unfettered access to the upper registers. As a whole, the Doce Doble has a resonant, harmonious 12-string timbre and a comfortably playable shape that is well suited for a variety of musical styles.

Taylor 657ce Grand Pacific Doce Doble Tonewoods

Premium Tonewoods Sing

The all-solid wood construction of the 657ce Grand Pacific Doce Doble allows it to sing with a charming voice. Its maple back and sides provide clarity and focus to each note, and the wood has been carefully treated and retuned to provide more low-end presence than is typically found in maple. The solid Sitka spruce top is a classic tonewood revered for its musicality, dynamic range and balanced overtones. Together, these carefully selected appointments produce notes that bloom with shimmering overtones and project with ringing sustain.

Taylor 657ce Grand Pacific Doce Doble V-Class Bracing

Innovative Bracing Enhances the Acoustic Experience

Patented Taylor V-Class bracing enhances the 657ce Doce Doble’s volume, sustain and intonation. The asymmetric bracing design frees the spruce top to vibrate with increased flexibility and resonance. You’ll notice notes that blossom and decay with density and richness, as well as a “wider” tone that fills the room. Innovative V-Class bracing also provides a sturdy framework for the 12-string configuration, resulting in a guitar with an impressively bold voice and consistent harmonic quality across the entire fretboard. Chords ring evenly and single-note melodies jump from the strings with superior projection.
