Get A Balanced Tonal Response & Greater Harmonic Agreement With Taylor Guitars' 524ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar

This all-mahogany cutaway Grand Auditorium enjoys a sonic upgrade with the addition of V-Class bracing. Mahogany typically delivers a focused sound with a full midrange, and a hardwood top like mahogany adds a natural compression to the response, helping to create a balanced articulation across the tonal spectrum, which benefits lively strummers.

The V-Class treatment allows those sounds to flourish with greater volume, longer sustain, and more harmonic agreement between notes, which helps chords sing in a whole new way. A shaded Edgeburst around the body and neck adds a vintage treatment to the dark, rich-grained mahogany, and the top has been left pickguard-free to preserve the rootsy character of the wood. Understated appointments include grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlays with a new peghead inlay, faux tortoiseshell binding, and a faux tortoise/ivoroid rosette. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor's proprietary ES2 electronics, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
